Security is of the highest priority at Speechify. With users across all professions, from medical, and law, to authors working on their best sellers to students adding textbooks to our app, we process plenty of data. In 2022, Speechify read 6.5 billion words and converted them into high quality, natural sounding speech. To ensure our users’ data is secure, we Speechify had to be SOC2 compliant.

So, what is SOC2

Security Operations Center (SOC 2) is a special way of keeping customer data safe. The American Institute of CPAs made the rules which tell organizations how to keep customer data secure. This includes making sure their information is protected, available at all times, processed correctly and kept private. SOC2 evaluates a company on:

  1. Oversight of the organization
  2. Vendor management programs
  3. Internal corporate governance and risk management processes
  4. Regulatory oversight

Why do companies need to be SOC2 compliant

SOC 2 compliance is important. It means that an organization keeps information safe. They regularly run tests and audits to make sure user information is taken care of properly.

Why should Text to Speech and Voice Over tools be SOC2 compliant?

Text to speech tools work by either allowing users to take a picture of any text and then the app would convert it to speech or allow the TTS app access to all data within another app or a browser. Both apps can convert text into audio in real-time or download the audio files. But where are these audio files being stored and who has access to them? Text can also be converted to speech over an API. But how is the data being transferred? Are there temporary files and who has access to them? TTS and AI voice overs is a great concept, but what if you are using the apps for confidential information? When you allow access to your sensitive information, how is this information being protected? This is why you should always look for SOC2 compliant tools to protect your work. It could be that you are a doctor and you are reading confidential, HIPAA compliant, information or you are an author and working on the next world wide bestseller but fear your manuscript and draft could be leaked.

The best SOC2 compliant text to speech tool

Speechify is proud to say that it is SOC2 compliant and undergoes regular audits to ensure compliance. You can try our text to speech tool online for free. When you are ready to convert to a paid user, you can rest assured that in the background, Speechify is SOC2 compliant and will always take proactive steps to ensure compliance. When you install the TTS app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device, you will be granting it access to other apps and browsers so you can rest assured that your data is protected. Text to speech uses machine learning and generative AI functionality to convert text into 200+ languages into natural-sounding accents in real time.

The best SOC2 compliant voice over tool

Speechify Voice Over is the premium voice over tool in the market. You do not need to be an expert in audio editing. All the controls are in the browser and using it is so simple that anyone can create voice overs that have a high production quality. Unlike TTS where the app has access to any data you view in your browser or other apps, Voice Over has access only to the data that you input into the tool. This data could be sensitive, your upcoming podcast, your next audiobook, or your earnings call. You want this data to be secure.
