The SOC 2 audit thoroughly reviewed how StarTree's internal controls affect the security, availability, and processing integrity of the systems it uses to process users' data and the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems. SOC 2 compliance is another proof point of StarTree’s commitment to meet and exceed industry standards and best practices for security and privacy set by AICPA.

“Our mission at StarTree is to help our customers scale globally,” said Jitender Aswani, Vice President, Engineering at StarTree. “In addition to scaling our technology, this means adapting to different geographies, customs, and legal frameworks. With our SOC 2 Type II certification, we reached another major milestone in this journey. This certification further speeds up vendor onboarding and supports our customers’ internal compliance process.”

StarTree Cloud combines the performance and scalability of Apache PinotTM with advanced features, enabling enterprises to ingest, store, and query large volumes of data for their user-facing and real-time analytical applications. The Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC) and the fully-managed Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) models come with best-in-class security measures, including OIDC authentication, data encryption in transit and at rest, and cloud-native permissions and key management.
