Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2


The SOC 2 report is an attestation report that expands the evaluation of controls to the criteria set forth by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Trust Services Principles. These principles define leading practice controls relevant to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy applicable to service organizations such as Rescale. This report provides additional transparency into Rescale's security based on industry standards and further demonstrates our commitment to protecting customer data.

International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)


Rescale supports US International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliance. Companies subject to ITAR export regulations, such as many of Rescale's customers in the aerospace industry, must control unintended exports by restricting access to protected data to US Persons and restricting physical location of that data to the US. Rescale works with partners to provide an end-to-end environment physically located in the US and where access is limited to US Persons, thereby allowing qualified companies to transmit, process, and store protected articles and data subject to ITAR restrictions.

Cloud Security Alliance (CSA)

Cloud Security Alliance

In 2011, the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) launched STAR, an initiative to encourage transparency of security practices within cloud providers. The CSA Security, Trust & Assurance Registry (STAR) is a publicly available registry that has information about the control programs of a number of cloud-based organizations. This free registry allows consumers to assess the security of cloud providers they are considering contracting with. In order to provide our customers with as much information about security as possible, Rescale has filled out the CSA Consensus Assessments Initiative Questionnaire (CAIQ).
