Data security and privacy

Last modified on 30-Nov-23

Soda works in several ways to ensure your data and systems are secure and remain private.

Compliance and reporting

As a result of an independent review in April 2022, Soda has been found to be SOCII Type 2 compliant. Contact for more information.


Making secure connections

Installed in your environment, you use the Soda Library command-line tools to securely connect to a data source using system variables to store login credentials.

You can connect Soda Library to your Soda Cloud account. To communicate with your data source, Soda Cloud uses a Network Address Translation (NAT) gateway with the IP address You may wish to add this IP address to your data source’s passlist.

Single sign-on with Soda Cloud

Organizations that use a SAML 2.0 single sign-on (SSO) identity provider can add Soda Cloud as a service provider. Once added, employees of the organization can gain authorized and authenticated access to the organization’s Soda Cloud account by successfully logging in to their SSO. Refer to Set up single sign-on with Soda Cloud for details.

Sending data to Soda Cloud

Soda Library usse a secure API to connect to Soda Cloud. When Soda Library completes a scan, it pushes the scan results to your Soda Cloud account where you can log in and examine the details in the web application.

Notably, your Soda Cloud account does not store the raw data that Soda Library scans. Soda Library pushes metadata to Soda Cloud; by default all your data stays inside your private network.

Soda Cloud does store the following:

  • metadata, such as column names
  • aggregated metrics, such as averages
  • sample rows and failed rows, if you explicitly set up your configuration to send this data to Soda Cloud

Where your datasets contain sensitive data or private information, you may not want to send failed row samples from your data source to Soda Cloud. In such a circumstance, you can disable the failed row samples feature entirely in Soda Cloud. Read more about disabling samples and failed row samples in Failed rows checks.
