Gradient Cyber Receives SOC 2 Type II Attestation

Independent Audit Verifies Gradient Cyber’s Internal Controls and Processes

SOUTHLAKE, TX December 7, 2023 – Gradient Cyber, the leader in MXDR, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation provides evidence that Gradient Cyber has a strong commitment to security and to delivering high-quality services to its clients by demonstrating it has the necessary internal controls and processes in place.


A SOC 2 audit provides an independent, third-party validation that a service organization’s information security practices meet industry standards stipulated by the AICPA. During the audit, non-financial reporting controls related to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system are tested. The SOC 2 report delivered by KirkpatrickPrice verifies the design and operating effectiveness of controls to meet the standards for these criteria.

“Instilling trust and confidence for our clients and stakeholders is job one at Gradient Cyber. SOC 2 Type 2 is a rigorous certification that ensures we’re delivering robust security, confidentiality, and service availability,” stated Steve Chappell, COO for Gradient Cyber. “This certification is essential to ensuring our mid-market customers are being safeguarded by our Managed Security Operations Center, 24x7x365.”


“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “Gradient Cyber delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Gradient Cyber’s controls.”
