Our proactive data security measures include the following.

Software level security:

  • We ensure we run up-to-date software components verified with vulnerability scanners.
  • We apply encryption on all sensitive data (in transit and at rest).
  • Encryption keys are kept on separate host from where data resides.
  • All nodes run on hardened Operating Environments, which consists of custom bare-bone Linux kernels with no extraneous software packages or functions.

Network security:

  • All connections to our Cloud infrastructure is protected with 256-bit SSL/TLS.
  • Industry-standard firewalls guard all network access to our infrastructure. This include real-time packet sniffing software to detect network intrusion, and host-based intrusion detection systems on all operating nodes.
  • Internet-facing nodes are checked with regular penetration testing.
  • All network-level access is logged with real-time alerts on suspicious activity.

Data security:

  • We apply strict internal procedures with regards to data access on our systems and our support personnel have access to data only on a need-to basis.
  • Our support team is trained to counter social engineering by malicious parties.
  • Any data that passes through our service is strictly protected and never divulged to outsiders.
  • We do not sell marketing databases, so there is zero possibility of any conflict of interest.
  • For customers on Basic Plan and higher, your messaging data stays within Singapore and is not routed to any foreign 3rd-party sub-contractor.
  • Entire disk volumes that contain customer data are encrypted.
  • Databases are backed up on real-time basis to a replica, then backed up again nightly, which in turn is backed up again by the underlying storage systems.

Data-Center security:

  • Our servers are hosted with a major Cloud provider which confirms to the MTCS Level 3 standard (Pro Plan customers with a formal SLA can contact us to request for a copy of the certification documents)
