Security & Compliance

At Viam, we understand that protecting your data is paramount. We believe security is so critical we did not launch our public beta before implementing rigorous security protocols into the platform. Viam is SOC2 Type I and HIPAA compliant per independent auditors, and has been since the moment the beta launched. Viam is committed to continually improving our security and privacy features as the platform evolves, and sharing advancements with customers.

With Viam, you have full governance of your smart machines: you control user access to Viam. Every smart machine has end-to-end encrypted communications with Viam’s platform, other smart machines, and the client applications they interact with.

Viam makes it easier than ever to do big things with smart machines, always with the confidence that security comes first.
