  • The Google Cloud Platform is accredited to SSAE 16 Type II, ISAE 3402 Type II and ISO 27001:2005 standards.
  • The Amazon Web Service is accredited to SSAE 16 Type II, ISAE 3402 Type II and ISO 27001:2005 standards.
  • SafetyCulture does not store or cache financial data used in conjunction with automated client billing through the SafetyCloud platform.
  • Financial data storage and processing is performed by Web Active Corporation trading as eWAY and is encrypted using technologies provided by Ingrian Networks and Thales e-Security, Inc. Data transmission is secured through industry standard SSL/TLS encryption.
    • eWay is compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) 3.2.
  • SafetyCloud utilizes Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and SPDY, both using standard encryption technologies, for all client communications. Content is served directly from a single Virtual IP (VIP) address using the SafetyCloud SSL Certificate by SafetyCloud’s application servers or through the SafetyCloud Static CDN.
  • SafetyCloud employs Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS), where available, on both HTTP and SPDY connections. The use of either SSL or TLS is mandatory for all content-serving connections; however, some insecure connections are accepted to allow the server to redirect the connecting client to the secure equivalent.
