We are proud to announce that Smartcar is SOC 2 Type 2 compliant. This is another important milestone in our ongoing commitment to data security and privacy for our customers.
At Smartcar, security and privacy play a big part in our engineering decisions and our culture. Earlier this year, we embarked on a process to formalize our approach to data security, and today we're thrilled to share that Smartcar has successfully completed the SOC 2 Type 2 examination!
Why is SOC 2 Type 2 compliance important?
As a trusted vendor, we are dedicated to continuously improving our security posture with the highest level of data protection and controls. For our customers, SOC 2 Type 2 serves as a key piece of documentation that Smartcar consistently provides its service in a secure and reliable manner.
“SOC 2 Type 2 is the gold standard for accountability,” said Sanketh Katta, CTO and Co-Founder of Smartcar. "We’re proud that Smartcar’s SOC 2 Type 2 report met all security trust services criteria without exception!”
Our ongoing commitment to data security and privacy
At Smartcar, we take a number of important measures to ensure our platform's security, reliability, and privacy on an ongoing basis.
For starters, all requests to Smartcar services must be encrypted using HTTPS, and all data stored on our platform is protected with Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption. This requirement ensures that data communications and storage are always secure.
Our platform runs on industry-standard cloud infrastructure, where we maintain security best-practices at every level of the network stack. These include the isolation of components and services to prevent unauthorized access to the Smartcar platform.
Smartcar is also compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This ensures our platform processes only the necessary data to serve our customers. With Smartcar, vehicle owners are in complete control of their shared data and can revoke their consent at any time.
