Yes. We have attained SOC2 Type I and Type II compliance. A summary report is available for customers to download from our website, and a detailed report is available under NDA. However, under most circumstances the summary report should be sufficient.

By choosing SOC2 Type II compliance, we are able to tangibly demonstrate an ongoing commitment to our internal control environment, policies and procedures.
