Your data is safe with a platform secured by design
Security has been integrated from the beginning in the design and the development of the Akur8 platform to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your data.
We implement a variety of controls to ensure your data remains confidential and is accessed only by authorized persons. These controls include, but are not limited to: absolute segregation between customers, the encryption of data with state of the art algorithms, strict access controls and regular penetration tests by an independent third party.
We deploy a variety of controls to ensure that your data is protected against unauthorized alterations, such as strict access controls, regular backups, regression tests in the change management process, audit trails, etc.
Our platform and your data are automatically replicated in several locations to ensure a high level of resilience and backups are performed on a daily basis.
Compliance Privacy Standards
At no time does Akur8 have access to personal data.
During every step of the data upload process, Akur8 reminds customers that personal data should not be uploaded unless anonymized.
However, in specific cases where the client has embedded personal data by default into the database, Akur8 ensures compliance with CCPA, GDPR, and national or federal privacy and data protection standards.
