We have a DevSecOps team dedicated to improving the security of our organization. Our employees are trained on security incident response and are on call 24/7.
All of our services run in the cloud. We don’t host or run our own servers, switches, routers, load balancers or DNS servers.
Our service is built on Amazon Web Services (AWS). They provide strong security measures to protect our infrastructure and are compliant with most certifications. You can read more about their practices here:
Data center security is part of the services provided by AWS. They have been certified as ISO 27001, PCI/DSS Service Provider Level 1, and/or SOC II compliance.
AWS infrastructure services include back-up power, HVAC systems, and fire suppression equipment to help protect servers and ultimately your data.
Learn more about Data Center Controls at AWS.
Our network security architecture consists of multiple security zones. Each environment has its own VPC and each service is isolated on different subnets with strict control through security groups about allowed communication. By default:
Security groups are regularly reviewed to ensure that only necessary communications are allowed (incoming and outgoing traffic, from inside or outside).
External access to the architecture:
We use AWS Shield in front of our architecture to protect our service from Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
All data sent to or from our infrastructure is encrypted in transit via industry best-practices using Transport Layer Security (TLS). We use the most restrictive TLS policy available from AWS, (ELBSecurityPolicy-FS-1-2-Res-2019-08, details available here, which enable only TLS 1.2.
All data sent inside our infrastructure is encrypted in transit via industry best-practices using Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 only.
All our data (including user data, passwords, etc) is encrypted at rest using battled-proofed encryption algorithms.
We don’t retain your data after the end of the service. All data is then completely removed from the dashboard and server.
Every user can request the removal of usage data by contacting support.

We back up all our critical assets and regularly attempt to restore the backup to guarantee a fast recovery in case of disaster. All our backups are encrypted.
We use technologies to monitor exceptions, logs and detect anomalies in our applications.
We collect and store logs to provide an audit trail of our applications activity.
We use a security monitoring solution to get visibility into our application security, identify attacks and respond quickly to a data breach.
We use a runtime protection system that identifies and blocks OWASP Top 10 and business logic attacks in real-time.
We use security headers to protect our users from attacks.
We develop following security best practices and frameworks (OWASP Top 10, SANS Top 25).
We use the following best practices to ensure the highest level of security in our software:
We rely on yearly third-party security experts to perform penetration tests of our applications.
We encourage everyone that practices responsible disclosure and comply with our policies and terms of service to participate in our bug bounty program.
Please avoid automated testing and only perform security testing with your own data. Please do not disclose any information regarding the vulnerabilities until we fix them. Rewards are done at our discretion depending on the criticality of the vulnerability reported.
You can report vulnerabilities by contacting email@example.com. Please include a proof of concept. We will respond as quickly as possible to your submission and won’t take legal actions if you follow the rules.
Please provide as much information as possible, context, source code and tools used. If you would like to share sensitive data, our PGP key is available on OpenGPG server.
We’re compliant to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The purpose of GDPR is to protect the private information of EU citizens and give them more control over their personal data. Contact us for more details on how we comply with GDPR.
Our strict internal procedure prevents any employee or administrator from gaining access to user data. Limited exceptions can be made for customer support.
All our employees sign a Non-Disclosure and Confidentiality Agreement when joining the company to protect our customers' sensitive information.
