Protect your data using the industry’s most stringent security guidelines

EmployeeChannel has a secure, enterprise-grade platform to protect your organization’s and your employees’ data. Data is fully encrypted at rest and in transit using 256-bit SSL encryption. We employ state-of-the-art firewall and backup technology, and your data resides in high-security, access-controlled data centers.

EmployeeChannel maintains GDPR Compliance and adheres to data privacy and security provisions within the HITRUST Common Security Framework.

We follow some of the most stringent security guidelines available today for

  • Storage of information
  • Transmission of information
  • User access and identity management
  • Secure IT infrastructure.

As secure as the data in world-class healthcare, finance, and banking institutions.

Secure Storage

  • Employees’ personally Identifiable Information (PII) is stored and encrypted on Google Cloud Platform’s (GCP) Cloud SQL. GCP’s Cloud SQL includes a network firewall, requiring explicit control of network access to each database instance.
  • Access to data is further secured by GCP SQL Proxy software, limiting data access to a specific-machine based service account. The account’s encryption key is managed by GCP Infrastructure Key Management Service and is not stored on the server.

Secure Transmission

  • All APIs to retrieve employees’ personal information are secured using SSL/TLS1.2 security standards to protect against unauthorized interception of protected information.
  • All communications via your employees’ mobile devices (IOS/Android) are also encrypted using SSL/TLS1.2 standards, and protected information is never stored on a mobile device.

User Access and Identity Management

  • Employees can download and use your version of the EmployeeChannel app through an organization-unique invitation.
  • An employee’s user identity is authenticated via confirmation of information supplied by the organization, minimally two different types of unique identifiers (e.g., SSN, date of birth, etc.). Employees must then establish a password before accessing the application or any organizational or personal information.

Secure IT Infrastructure

EmployeeChannel servers are hosted with Google Cloud Platform’s (GCP) Infrastructure Service, a recognized leader in data information protection. CGP’s Infrastructure Service provides:

  • IP Reputation Management
  • Multi-tier, multi-layer denial of service (DoS) protections
