New York City, NY – July 10, 2018 –, the leading workflow management platform for video, has made significant steps to strengthen security in media environments, announcing that the company has received SOC2 TYPE 1 compliance, ensuring customers’ data is protected. In addition, the video collaboration platform now includes two new security features: Visual Watermarking and Asset Lifecycle Management, expanding security management to front-line workflows.

“At content security matters. It doesn’t just matter, it’s everything,” said Emery Wells, co-founder and CEO of “Earlier this year, I wrote an open letter to our customers about our growing security team and initiatives, with a promise to not just meet security best practices, but far exceed them. Becoming SOC2 Type 1 compliant is a big step toward our goal to lead in the content security space. And releasing new security features like Visual Watermarking and Asset Lifecycle Management is another way we can deliver on our promise.”

Ensuring Data Protection Through SOC2 Type 1 Compliance

The audit process evaluated against service controls derived from three key trust principles of SOC2 - security, availability, and confidentiality. That means all customers can rest assured their valuable media assets are protected from security threats today and well into the future.

SOC2 Type 1 certification is a milestone in our efforts to keep customers' data protected,” stated Wells. “Ensuring customers’ content is safe and accessible is a responsibility we take very seriously. So instead of just talking about our security processes, we invited an independent third-party auditor from an accredited auditing company and had them examine us against security, availability, and confidentiality controls. This is just the first of many measures is taking to build the industry’s best security program. Now, when we say that your content is secure, you don't have to only take our word for it.”

As part of the audit process, auditors examined various internal controls and practices, including human resources, software development lifecycle, risk management & assessment, vendor management, change management, incident response process, security monitoring & operations, infrastructure & cloud security, physical security, and most importantly, the management and board's commitment to security & privacy of customers.

Customers can review a SOC2 Type 1 report, validating security controls. The SOC2 Type 1 report is available under NDA to all existing and potential customers.’s effort to obtain SOC2 Type 1 compliance was led by Head of Information Security, Abhinav Srivastava. Abhinav joined this past September from the AT&T Research Lab where he was leading a number of security research efforts. Abhinav and the security team recently co-authored a white paper published on July 9th as a part of Usenix's HotCloud '18 Workshop on cloud computing.

Then they can configure their team settings to automatically watermark the content their team uploads to, helping deter any unauthorized sharing of their team's content.

Introducing Asset Lifecycle Management

With Asset Lifecycle Management, customers need not worry about cleaning out old videos from the platform; does it for you on an automated cadence that you define.
