Great products come from great ideas. We have the security measures in place to protect your company’s future.

Service and security you can trust with ProdPad.

Secure data transfer

Data Protection

All data entered into ProdPad is encrypted at-rest and in-transit. We use AWS Key Management Store to manage the encryption at rest using AES-256 keys.

All data stores are snapshotted nightly and stored for 30 days. These backups are encrypted. Point-in-time logs compliment the nightly snapshots enabling us to recover data to within seconds of a failure and quickly rebuild in another region should it be required.

Layered Protection

At ProdPad we layer protections. Firewalls exist at the host, network and application level. These firewalls have content policies for both inbound and outbound content. Intrusion detection and response systems exist at both the network and host level. Automated vulnerability scans are run regularly (at least once a week) on all levels.

Audit logs exist on all levels to support comprehensive compliance and security requirements. All code is statically analysed and run through an automated and manual QA processes.

Support and SLAs

ProdPad is based in the UK, so our support team are available to help you during UK business hours. However, we’re a pretty responsive team, so you’ll often find us responding to your requests earlier or later than you’d expect. We also have an active Slack community for active customers, which can be a big help if you just have a question on how to use the system.

The Slack community is moderated by the ProdPad team and no member is permitted to solicit or spam other members of the community. We are a friendly bunch, so just ask!
