MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif., March 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — SearchStax, a leading cloud-native search platform for modern customer experiences announced today that they have met the attestation requirements for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act also known as HIPAA.

SearchStax also successfully completed the annual SOC 2 Type 2 audit for their Solr cloud and SearchStudio service. The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) created the Service Organization Control 2 Type 2 review which is also known as “SOC 2 Type 2” to govern how cloud service providers assure customers that their information is secure and available when needed. This compliance audit demonstrates that SearchStax has adequate controls of data protection technologies and processes – and provides trust and confidence to customers that SearchStax has met the internal control standards for corporate governance, risk management and regulatory oversight.
