Socrative's infrastructure is protected from the ground up. We use Amazon Web Services (AWS) for our hosting. AWS is an industry leader at providing a highly scalable cloud computing platform with end-to-end security and privacy features built-in.
Access to these data centers is strictly controlled and monitored using a variety of physical controls, intrusion detection systems, environmental security measures, 24 x 7 on-site security staff, biometric scanning, multi-factor authentications, video surveillance and other electronic means. All physical and electronic access to data centers by Amazon employees is authorized strictly on a least privileged basis and is logged and audited routinely.
AWS maintains an impressive list of reports, certifications and independent assessments — including ISO 9001, PCI DSS Level 1, SOC1, SOC2, SOC3, among others — to ensure complete and ongoing state-of-the-art data center security. They’ve devoted an entire portion of their site to explaining their security measures and compliance certifications which you can find at:
Our employees do not have physical access to our infrastructure servers hosted at AWS. Electronic access to our servers and services is restricted to a core set of approved staff only.
