In addition to the SOC 2 Type 2 certification, Tencent Meeting also obtained a Grade III Certification on Protection of Information Security from the Ministry of Public Security in China ( the highest accreditation level for non-bak organisations in China).

Other certifications include the Trusted Cloud enterprise level SaaS certification, the only authoritative certification system for cloud computing in China.
