Announcing CometChat’s SOC 2 Type II Compliance

We take security seriously at CometChat. Which is why we’re proud to announce that we are now SOC 2 Type II certified. 

Team CometChat • Jul 1, 2022

At CometChat, we’re committed to not just meeting industry standards, but exceeding them to defend the sensitive data our customers entrust us with. That’s why organizations of all sizes rely on CometChat’s enterprise-grade security features.

CometChat’s Commitment to Security

Last year, we shared our SOC 2 Type 1 Report, which provides a snapshot of our organizational controls, including security, privacy, and data confidentiality, at a single point in time. We didn’t stop there.

The SOC 2 Type II audit assesses these organizational controls over a longer period of time, usually six months to one year. For this reason, obtaining Type II is a longer and more robust certification process.

By adhering to SOC 2’s rigorous standards and successfully achieving this milestone, CometChat continues our longstanding commitment to security, and represents months of hard work by our team.

“Now, in addition to having ISO 27001, GDPR, HIPAA and PIPEDA standards in place, this SOC 2 certification further builds on our reputation as being one of the most trusted chat platforms for safe and secure in-app messaging, voice and video communication,” said Taru Agarwal, CometChat’s Sr. Director of Compliance.

What Is SOC 2 Compliance?

SOC stands for System and Organization Controls for Service Organizations, and it is a framework developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)

for determining whether a service organization’s controls are effective at protecting the privacy and security of its customer data according to a standardized trust service criteria.

Our SOC 2 Type II audit, performed by Sensiba San Filippo, LLP, comes with zero exceptions, which is a testament to our comprehensive safeguards for protecting our users’ data.

For a more detailed explanation, refer to our SOC 2 Compliance and Certification Guide.
