ZeroBounce Is ISO 27001 and SOC 2 Type 2 Certified
We’re stoked to share these milestones with you: ZeroBounce is now ISO 27001 and SOC Type 2 certified. Read on to learn how our email validation and deliverability company ensures your data is most secure.
ZeroBounce received its MSECB Management System Certificate on August 24, 2022, marking another step in our ongoing pursuit for highest-level data security.
After passing all the assessments over a period of two months, ZeroBounce is in accordance with the management system requirements for ISO/IEC 27001:2013.
Coming just months after our SOC 2 Type 2 certification, the ISO 27001 certificate is a reassuring standard for companies processing customer, employee, and other types of data.
COO Brian Minick on ZeroBounce’s ISO 27001 certification
ZeroBounce Chief Operating Officer Brian Minick emphasizes the company’s focus on data protection and security.
“Achieving and obtaining our ISO 27001 certificate is another commitment to how serious we take our software development and handling of customer data,” he says.
“I’m very proud of our team for their dedication and effort to get this certification. Our team will always go above and beyond to provide our customers comfort with respect to their data.”
“We did not ‘have to’ do this, we wanted to – and there’s a big difference in that mentality. Congratulations to our team and everyone involved!”
ZeroBounce’s Head of Cybersecurity: “ISO 27001 was key for our service and market niche”
In an ever-evolving security landscape, our customers are becoming more and more stringent in their procurement process.
With major security breaches such as the Dropbox, LinkedIn, Facebook and the iCloud leak, organizations are much more aware of the security risks of using cloud-based services.
ZeroBounce’s Head of Cybersecurity Vlad Cristescu says:
“Prospective customers are asking us detailed and specific questions about our security management processes. One question that keeps coming up is Are you ISO 27001-certified?”
“After attaining SOC 2 Type 2, we wanted to cater to more of our international customers and ISO 27001 was key for our service and market niche,” Vlad Cristescu adds.
Our Head of Cybersecurity shed more light on the topic in the Q&A below.
Vlad, what did it take to accomplish this milestone?
Even from my first interview with Zerobounce, it was clear that cybersecurity was key in ensuring the future success of the company.
The foundation for ISO 27001 was already in place, with Zerobounce already having a strong security stance. It had received the SOC 2 Type 2 accreditation just days after I started.
All it needed for ISO 27001 was to better align the Information Security Management System in place and policies within, with the ISO/IEC guidelines.
A key driver for success was bringing on-board Dumitru Martea as the Head of Compliance. Without his vast experience, the journey would have been a lot longer.
What was the biggest hurdle for you and your team?
The biggest hurdle had less to do with ZeroBounce’s security stance and more to do with me and my team. We were just starting in this role and needed to understand the groundwork laid before our time.
What does ZeroBounce’s ISO 27001 certification mean to you personally?
I’m elated I got to make an impact so early in my journey within ZeroBounce. It set the bar quite high, but I’m confident and looking forward to more contributions to keeping ZeroBounce and our customers’ data safe.
What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001:2013 is a set of standards for organizations to establish, implement, maintain and improve an information security management system.
This internationally recognized certification is regularly reviewed by an independent auditor. It demonstrates our continual commitment to improving and protecting important digital assets.

ZeroBounce also received its SOC 2 Type 2 certification
ISO 27001 is just the latest security certification that ZeroBounce added to its platform.
On March 2, 2022, ZeroBounce obtained its SOC 2 Type 2 certification after undergoing an examination of its internal controls.
“It’s more than a certification for us. It shows beyond doubt that we’re not just serious about protecting the data we process – but can prove that we’re doing it,” says ZeroBounce CEO Liviu Tanase.
“It’s a continued testament to our customers that we operate under a highly-respected standard. Keeping their data safe is always high on our list.”
External auditors conducted this examination under guidelines established by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). These guidelines aim to determine whether an organization manages customer data properly by following:
- processing integrity
