Assuring the safety and security of your business data and the Glide apps you build with it




Glide is Officially SOC 2 Type 1 Certified

When it comes to business software, few factors are as important as how it ensures the safety and security of your data. At Glide, we are dedicated to keeping your business data safe and secure. This is why we are happy to announce that we have successfully completed our SOC 2 Type 1 Certification.

The certification audit involves a rigorous evaluation of all of our business's security practices, processes, and platform. It provides an objective outside assessment of our company’s cybersecurity practices so you can rest easy knowing the apps you build with Glide — and the data you use to power them — are secured to the highest standard.

What is Soc 2 Type 1 Certification?

A SOC 2 Type 1 Certification (System and Organization Controls Report) is awarded after a third party performs a thorough audit of a company’s security practices. Their evaluation is based on the five Trust Services Criteria of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants:

  • Security — Information is protected from unauthorized access and other vulnerabilities

  • Availability — Services have consistent uptime and are available for clients to access

  • Processing integrity — Systems operate as they are intended to

  • Confidentiality — Confidential information is protected by limiting access, use, and storage 

  • Privacy — Personal information is safeguarded against access by unauthorized users

During our audit, independent evaluators examined our company processes, training, employee codes of conduct, equipment maintenance, system backups, business continuity plans, and incident response plans. The result is a thorough picture of a company’s security practices, delivered in a format that is easy to evaluate.

Build apps on top of your secure data with confidence

Glide’s SOC 2 Type 1 Certification is another reassurance that the critical business data you build your Glide apps on top of will remain private and secure. It provides an objective third-party confirmation that your trust in Glide is well founded.

Our team continually invests in Glide's security posture so you can build with peace of mind. For further detailed reading about Glide’s security practices, visit our Security Center.
