At Tailscale, we are ridiculously passionate about security and privacy—so much so that we built a product that, by design, can’t see your data. We don’t even want to see your data. Behind the scenes, we’ve been completing security audits, working with expert cryptographers to validate our key management, and ensuring we lock down access to our production environment.

We’re excited to announce that we’ve received our SOC 2 Type I report, reaffirming our commitment to security. Let’s dig into how Tailscale applies security controls to protect your information.

Tailscale already has stringent security controls in place

Essentially, our SOC 2 Type I report allows you to verify that our internal procedures and policies are in line with what we should be doing to keep your information safe, as validated by an independent auditor.

Tailscale has a number of security controls in place. At a high level, these include:

The SOC 2 Type I report contains more detailed explanations of these controls. To request a report, contact sales. Note that both existing and prospective customers will need to sign an NDA to access the report.

We’re never done working on security

Though it’s great that we can point to this report as proof of the security work we’ve been doing, our work in security is never done. Compliance is not a one-and-done thing—we’ve already started the work on our SOC 2 Type II report. And compliance isn’t security—simply meeting compliance requirements isn’t enough.

We’ve built security into Tailscale by design, from the beginning:

We’ve also built features in Tailscale to let you take control and follow security best practices:

To take advantage of all of Tailscale’s security features and best protect your network, we recommend following our hardening guide.

We believe trust is earned through transparency, which is why we at Tailscale are inclined to (over)share about how our company works and why we make the decisions we make. We hope that by opening up a bit more about how we keep your information safe, we’re helping you trust us even more.
