  • The platform cannot access users’ private information, such as telephone number, birthdate, address, social security number, etc.

 

Protected Data Icon

Our procedures comply with global security standards

  • We are certified SOC 2 compliant, which ensures our ability to protect our clients’ security
  • Our daily backup policy guarantees data can be restored if lost
  • Our emergency protocol ensures preparedness and continuous protection in case of unforeseen events
  • We constantly assess, evaluate and manage information technology risk

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
