Product Security

Authentication is via email and password. Upon signing up for an account, we require users to enter a complex password. Supabase is our authentication management system. All passwords are encrypted and Supabase is SOC2 Type 2 compliant and has a strong Data Processing Agreement for privacy. 

Customer data can only be accessed with authenticated accounts with the correct role access determined by the organization attached to the user profile and an organization-s own role settings per user as No Access, User, Manager, and Admin. 

 

Data Security and Availability

Customer data is hosted on Supabase, a SOC2 Type 2 compliant organization. Production data is never copied to development and is queried from a distinctly different API URL with different security keys - Production data is not ever mixed with other environment data. 

Customer data is transmitted via TLS encryption to InCommon cloud server functions before being sent to an InCommon client website via HTTPS/TLS 1.3 encryption. 

 

InCommon Infrastructure

InCommon is hosted on Vercel, a SOC2 Type 2 compliant organization. Vercel is also GDPR compliant, has advanced access controls, and a model to help prevent unreliability due to DDoS.
