Strategic services and solutions offered by CleverTap

Data Privacy and Security

Over 8,000 customers rely on CleverTap to execute on their mobile engagement strategies every day. Its security and risk management processes safeguard each customer's data within their silo, strictly restricting any movement of data between clients and thereby ensuring there is no inadvertent access to data other than yours. CleverTap leverages two-factor authentication, inflight data security across devices, formal change management policies, and up-to-date security protocols on the dashboard and across all API endpoints to ensure that customer security is not compromised.

Physical and Network Security

The firm maintains data-centers on AWS that are fully compliant with a range of certifications for industry-specific applications. It does not store any off-site data outside of AWS and does not use any off-site physical storage facilities. The firm follows best practices to protect the network perimeter, including maintaining redundant DNS servers and a denial-of-service (DoS) prevention and mitigation system. Antivirus and a host-based intrusion detection system (IDS) are used on all production servers.

Encrypting Data at Rest and Data in Motion

CleverTap performs encryption at all incoming and outgoing data collection endpoints. The most up-to-date TLS protocols with SHA256 algorithms are used to handle communications between CleverTap and customer applications. The data key used for encryption was encrypted using a unique customer master key and stored securely on the disk. The customer management key is stored securely using FIPS 140-2 validated hardware security modules and is never transmitted outside of the EU, where their data centers are based.

Access Control

CleverTap takes preventive measures to ensure that employees access its internal systems on a need-to-know basis based on the least-privilege, and via VPN. Additionally, to access the dashboard, every end-user requires a unique user ID and password, along with two-factor authentication and role-based, thus reducing the risk associated with account compromise. This access model is enforced on each end-user session. CleverTap requires passwords to be at least eight characters in length and rotated every 90 days for additional security. CleverTap passwords use PBKDF2 (Password-Based Key Derivation Function 2) with HMAC (hash-based message authentication code) along with a salt value and the SHA-1 algorithm.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

CleverTap's proprietary technology is custom-built and provides high availability and rapid recovery in the event of an issue. The firm is not reliant on any external launch cycles or product updates to improve performance. Its infrastructure is connected with multiple network carriers to dynamically respond to each request with the best connectivity to ensure the reliable and continuous availability of critical resources. Stringent role-based access control restrictions protect all data backups. Data is replicated periodically to provide state-of-the-art fault-tolerance, highly responsive recovery, and scalability at all times.
