We get asked a lot of questions, we've gathered them together to make it easier for you to find the answers you need. This page is regularly updated, so be sure to check back for new answers.

ISO27001 - The Appspace Security Team has modeled our internal security policies on the ISO27001 Certification. Certain aspects of the certification do not apply to our customer’s needs, but we are working on expanding the scope of the certification of our product and cloud services portfolio.

We have put a lot of work into implementing controls that help us meet our customer’s needs and can adjust quickly to the realities and challenges of delivering a SaaS platform. We include the controls found in external regulatory requirements and industry standards.

For Appspace cloud users, we've outlined our approach in our Cloud Security Statement and our Privacy Policy.

Appspace uses TLS to protect information while in transit across the Internet. We have implemented TLS1.2 and higher to support 256bit and higher encryption, further supporting data protection.

All database and content backups for the Appspace platform occur at least every four hours, and backups are retained for no less than three months. All backup data is encrypted.

Yes, Appspace cloud-based systems only use TLS, for communication. In addition, and in line with Industry standards, we have removed support for SSL 3.

Passwords are stored in a one-way hash within the Appspace platform.

We have an extensive security process that includes ongoing testing of our hosted systems.  We also undertake third party independent assessments of our platform.

We are working on determining the best way to share reports and be open about our internal testing results in a way that is secure and makes sense for our customers and us.

In line with our End User Agreement, we currently do not allow customer-initiated testing for our hosted service. We are committed to being open and share security information on this page.

We are committed to being open and transparent and sharing as much information as we can to enable you to make your decision to use our platform. Unfortunately we are not able to answer each individual questionnaire.

We aim to ensure Appspace users don't experience an outage or a security incident. However, an Incident Response Plan outlines the roles and responsibilities for Appspace and its users during such an event. Each plan is tailored to a specific incident type and is issued to account owners should a security incident should occur.
