Nothing is more important than protecting our customers’ data. We adhere to enterprise-class security levels and highest encryption standards to keep customer data secure at all times. We apply GDPR rules for all customers.
All CloudApp products run on best-in-class servers in Amazon AWS data centers located in United States of America. All Amazon AWS services are GDPR compliant. Customer data is always protected and never leaves data centers.
Servers are configured as bastion hosts with each server containing only the services it absolutely needs. No other software is added to the host to lessen the security penetration surface.
CloudApp software infrastructure is comprised of many microservices. Each microservice is isolated and ran on a specific docker host. Hosts are dynamically scaled depending on load.
Network security follows a multi-layered approach:
Data at rest is encrypted via AES-256 encryption using the services AWS provides and/or native Linux tools.
We use on-site and off-site monitoring and alerting tools 24/7. We try to detect every anomaly which could affect our services, before it becomes an issue. Personnel is always available for urgent issues, which are escalated up the chain as necessary.
We strive for 99.99% uptime for all our products.
Although our services are regularly upgraded, configured and monitored, regular penetration tests are employed to identify and remedy potential security issues. We try to perform such penetration tests at least on quarterly basis.
Critical passwords are secured in a virtual vault, using strong encryption protocols. Access is granted to authorised and qualified personnel only, on need-to-know basis.
Production data is mirrored to multiple servers in a master/slave fashion. In case of an instance failure, other instances take over the load. New instance is launched, which then resyncs data and rejoins the cluster.
Backups are taken on a daily basis, some more often, depending on sensitivity of data. Backups are securely stored on encrypted storage in a GDPR compliant datacenter.
We test our recovery operations and backup quality by regular data recovery. Minimum data recovery is seven days, up to 30 days of retention. GDPR requirements are followed.
As all software and customer data resides only in Amazon AWS infrastructure, AWS security certification compliance applies. Amazon AWS is certified with the following certificates, among others:
All of Amazon’s AWS services are GDPR ready.
