AlphaSense cannot access users’ personal information
- The AlphaSense platform accesses extremely limited user information, such as a user’s business email address and name
- The platform cannot access users’ private information, such as telephone number, birthdate, address, social security number, etc.
Our procedures comply with global security standards

The AlphaSense network is secured with firewalls and encryption
- AlphaSense servers are hosted behind a firewall with ingress and egress ports turned off, and are limited to a single HTTPS access on the server catering to user requests
- Subsystems are further isolated to Virtual Private Clouds without Internet access, which limits access to only specific named servers within the firewall, and via secure one-way encryption keys
Frequent tests and audits maintain our safety standards over time
- The entire AlphaSense system is constantly monitored and any access in or out is logged for anomaly detection
- Web service uptime at the server level is continuously monitored for any unexpected incidents or high usage suggestive of denial of service attacks
- The AlphaSense system is regularly audited and tested for penetration and vulnerability by third party security specialists
