Stream, the creator of enterprise-grade activity feed and chat APIs, announces the successful completion of its System and Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2 Type II) and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27001 audits, achieving compliance with the organizations’ thorough security standards. The certifications showcase Stream’s dedication to providing a highly secure in-app chat solution to enterprise customers, in addition to the company’s existing HIPAA and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance.
“The SOC 2 and ISO 27001 recognitions are a testament to our team’s hard work in ensuring we provide our customers with a high level of security and privacy, and ultimately, peace of mind in implementing our technology”
The audits were completed with the help of Secureframe, a platform that enables organizations to obtain and maintain global compliance standards, and streamline the audit process.
The SOC 2 audit determined that Stream’s security controls meet the certifier’s stringent requirements. SOC 2 has more than 200 requirements, ranging from organizational — such as security awareness training — to technical, which includes running vulnerability scans, encrypting data at rest, tracking the software development lifecycle, and more. This framework is commonly used to assess risks associated with external software solutions that store customer data online, so when a company is SOC 2 compliant, it guarantees that there are organizational practices in place to safeguard the privacy and security of client information.
ISO 27001, published in partnership with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), sets an international standard for managing information security. Stream’s ISO 27001 certification, achieved through a comprehensive and careful audit, validates to customers and partners that it safeguards their data and sensitive messaging and communication.
