How does Eightfold protect your data?

  1. Data segregation. Every customer’s data is stored separately and encrypted at rest.

  3. Secure web application. Entire Eightfold site uses HTTPS by default and all data is encrypted in transit.
  4. Internal data encryption. In addition to encrypting API traffic Eightfold encrypts all internal traffic. All data at rest, from databases to file systems to caches, is encrypted using AES-256, managed through AWS Key Management Service.
