At atSpoke, we’re committed to delivering forward-thinking technology while honoring the responsibility to safeguard the data customers share with us. We have taken a multi-tiered security approach in the design of our application and maintain that standard through secure development practices combined with a number of third-party assessments. Our focus remains on releasing product features that empower workplaces without sacrificing security.
We know that entrusting us with your internal corporate data is an important decision. Therefore we have taken numerous steps to create a strong security program to provide you the reassurance you need. We ensure that each customer’s data is kept safe and separate from other customer’s data, and also limit the same principles of access with our own staff’s capabilities. atSpoke doesn’t view your data unless you’re aware and we will never create any sort of meta-reporting that can be resold later. Our business is laser-focused on delivering the value we promise, and nothing else.
People, process and technology are all considerations in how we approach information security and data privacy. To validate the effectiveness of our internal security controls, we engaged an independent auditor to assess our compliance with a framework which is specifically designed for software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers.
atSpoke currently holds a report on compliance for the SOC 2 Type 2standard which outlines our philosophy and approach for information security management, risk assessment, board oversight, and third-party risks, among other principles.
All customer payments accepted by atSpoke via credit card are processed in compliance with the current Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The PCI DSS is designed to ensure any merchant accepting credit card payments are required to implement appropriate protective measures to prevent cardholder data from theft or fraudulent use. At a high level, to comply with the standard, we continue to:
Maintain a secure IT network;
Protect cardholder data through various organizational and technical controls;
Regularly monitor and assess networks for threats; and,
Maintain an information security program.
At atSpoke, we have selected the secure payment technology company Stripe for our credit card processing needs. Using Stripe, no cardholder data is ever stored or processed on atSpoke’s servers. For PCI Compliance, all atSpoke payment data and transaction processing is delegated to Stripe. Stripe is certified to the highest industry standards, including PCI DSS Level 1 certification and various rigorous standards across the globe.
We complement our own compliance achievements by hosting our services in Google Cloud Platform which is a state of the art data center, utilizing innovative architectural and modern engineering approaches. Google’s data centers have been validated for compliance against a number of strict standards, regulations and assorted frameworks.

Application & Product Security
We highly suggest the usage of SAML 2.0 for authorization and SCIM for user lifecycle management. We support the use of Google OAuth, or SAML 2.0 Single-Sign-On with end-user’s preferred identity provider for authentication and SCIM for provisioning and de-provisioning. atSpoke has native support for Okta, OneLogin and GSuite and we also support traditional username/password sign-in.
User passwords are protected by the latest recommendations for strong encryption and hashing (i.e. AES-256 and bcrypt).
User password requirements are consistent with NIST recommendations and balance usability with sound security.
atSpoke APIs only communicate over encrypted channels and are only accessible to verified users. Authentication is done via revocable API tokens issued to the user.
End-user privileges are provisioned by account Administrators using Role-based access controls.
Users can control the visibility of any request made in atSpoke through a privacy feature.
Email & Malware Protection
We protect all outgoing emails with DKIM (Domain Keys Identified Mail), SPF (Sender Policy Framework) and DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance) to prevent email spoofing.
Emails are exchanged securely using TLS 1.2 protocol.
All files uploaded to atSpoke are screened for malware using OPSWAT MetaDefender anti-malware protection service.
Resilient and Secure Architecture
Redundant and Scalable Infrastructure
atSpoke data and services are deployed across geographically distributed availability zones maintained by an industry-leading service provider (Google Cloud).
Load balancers are used to distribute application load across resources and support high availability through auto-scaling.
Properly isolated network resources combined with network address translation to restrict inbound traffic from untrusted zones.
Capacity thresholds are defined to automatically provision additional resources to meet demand.
We support the latest recommended secure cipher suites to encrypt all traffic in transit, including the use of TLS 1.2 protocol, and SHA2 signatures for data traveling between clients and atSpoke service; and between atSpoke services over public networks.
AES-256 bit encryption is utilized to protect application and customer data at rest.
We observe a strict key management policy that includes an aggressive key rotation procedure and minimum entropy requirements with access restricted to delegated key custodians.
Technology and tooling are in place to detect and alert on suspected network intrusion, command and control attempts or potential system compromise.
We have a documented security incident response process which includes appropriate escalation procedures, root cause analysis, impact assessment, and containment.
External communications can be made in a timely manner to impacted customers, third parties and authorities.
Data is replicated across multiple availability zones to support continuity in the event of a regional outage.
Snapshots of data are taken at regular intervals throughout a 24-hour period with complete backups performed at daily, weekly and monthly intervals with proactive retention periods observed.
Backup restoration procedures are documented and tested regularly to confirm the efficacy of our processes.
Our disaster recovery strategy is documented, with appointed responsible personnel and supported through regular review with our security team.
