Heap’s Commitment to Security
COMMITMENT TO SECURITY
Heap takes the security seriously. We invest in security technology, certifications, and human training, then back up those defenses with compliance certifications and white hat attacks.
Watch the video to see how Heap keeps E-Trade’s data safe.
Safeguard your customers’ data with automatic PII detection, custom install configurations, and a Secure Delete User API. All data sent to Heap is encrypted using TLS.
Heap encrypts all data entering or leaving Heap infrastructure with TLS/HTTPS. All of our databases (all located in AWS) are encrypted at rest. Each account’s data is logically separated, and access to data is protected by authentication and authorization controls.
Stay up-to-date with privacy legislation and policy compliance. Heap is both SOC 2 and GDPR compliant. Heap’s data infrastructure partners hold industry-leading security certifications such as SOC 2 and ISO 27001.
A comprehensive approach
We invest heavily in securing our infrastructure, and Heap is certified to the highest industry standards across the globe.
Heap takes a proactive approach to privacy. In addition to internal policies, personnel training, a Secure User Deletion API, and GDPR compliant data processing agreements, Heap has an on staff Data Protection Officer. For more info on our GDPR processes check out our blog.
Security is our top priority. We get binannual pen tests from third-party auditors. We also have an Intrusion Detection System that proactively monitors our application servers and infrastructure. Additionally, we enforce security training and compliance from all employees. For more information about our security and compliance policies, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
