Demonstrating Commitment to the Highest Standards of Data Security and Secure Content & Media Workflows
San Jose, CA (January 15, 2024) - XL8, a leading deep-tech startup specializing in AI-powered machine translation technology, announces it has completed both its Systems and Organization Controls (SOC 2) and Trusted Partner Network (TPN) certifications. Together, these two compliance accreditations reflect XL8’s commitment and holistic approach to protecting its customers’ data and content across all stages of media pipelines and workflows.
XL8’s comprehensive and robust SOC audit and certification, conducted by Sensiba, confirms the Company’s internal controls and processes effectively safeguard its customers’ sensitive information and data. SOC 2 security principles and controls demonstrate XL8’s investment in providing secure services and ensuring that its clients’ information security assets remain protected.
Achieving the globally recognized Trusted Partner Network (TPN) certification reinforces XL8’s pledge to uphold the most stringent content security best practices as outlined by the Motion Picture Association (MPA). It validates the company’s commitment to safeguarding its clients’ media assets, vital for customer confidence given the volume and importance of content that XL8 and its AI-powered machine translation and localization tools handle each day.
“At XL8, we have established operational requirements across our organization that support the achievement of security commitments, relevant laws and regulations, and other system requirements,” comments Jay Park, CTO at XL8. “Such requirements are communicated in XL8’s system policies and procedures, system design documentation, and contracts with our customers. Moreover, our information security policies define XL8’s organization-wide approach to how systems and data are protected. All in all, this shows how XL8 elevates our commitment, compliance and governance to protect and secure our customer’s trust.”
“Data and content security is ingrained in our company culture,” adds Josh Pine, Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) at XL8. “As the media environment rapidly evolves and content becomes more complex and interconnected, we’ve pledged to uphold the highest security standards for our processes, and the data and content our customers have entrusted us with.”
These types of data and content security frameworks and certifications also provide XL8 with the ability to conduct ongoing risk assessments, identify content security vulnerabilities, and adjust security policies and procedures when needed.
