Protecting Our Clients

Keeping Your Data Secure Is Non-Negotiable

Delivering a seamless experience to your employees requires us to have access to very important and sensitive data. That's a huge responsibility that we take very seriously, and it's why we embed security and privacy controls into all we do. And we keep safeguarding of that data top of mind so that trickles down through our decision-making process — the technology we build, the infrastructure we use, and the way we educate and hire our people.

We use third-party auditors to regularly assess our procedures, processes, controls, and infrastructure. These certifications reflect our commitment to data protection throughout our organization.
