How does StructionSite keep your business secure?
Protecting customer data
At StructionSite our approach to security is simple: Your data belongs to you, and we take the job of protecting it very seriously. We aim to be transparent about how we do that by providing a security overview here.
Data encrypted in transit and at rest
All traffic between mobile device applications, web browsers, backend servers, and databases is secured with industry-standard 2048-bit encryption. This means all sensitive data is kept incredibly safe while in transit.
Photos and images, team communications, and all other customer data are also encrypted in transit and at rest. They are not shared with anyone but designated collaborators on a project.
Data and files on the mobile device are secured according to the corporate policy of the company owning the device; for example, requiring passcodes to unlock the device, and encrypting all stored data while it is locked. Once uploaded to our secure servers, the original files are removed from the device.
Your files, photos and other media are at least as secure as anywhere else they are stored on the phone/device.
Secure login with password
A password is required to log in to StructionSite.com or the StructionSite mobile app. Your unique password is encrypted using SSL when sent to our servers, and it is encrypted with a hash function on the server.
Logging into the StructionSite mobile app always requires the user to enter their password, and we don’t provide an option to “save” the password after logging out on the mobile app.
Only the person created who created their password knows what it is. We never transmit or store passwords in plain text, and we don’t have the ability to read or decrypt them ourselves. This is why we require a customer to reset their password when it is forgotten.
Data storage and removal
Customer data is removed as soon as it is deleted or expires. This is why we advise our customers to make backups or export their data to another file management system before deleting it on StructionSite. Current customers should always contact us when in doubt.
Safety in the Cloud
All StructionSite.com servers and databases run on cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud, both of whom lead the industry in digital security. They ensure service uptime and availability, which in addition to security is vital to their business.
Depending on Google and Amazon to solve our core infrastructure problems allows StructionSite to focus on our customers and solving their problems. Google and Amazon employ teams of physical security staff and digital security engineers so we don’t have to.
