Unlike backup and storage software vendors that store customer data in third-party cloud platforms, Code42 is vertically integrated, from client-software and server platform development, through cloud operations and customer service.

    Code42 security personnel are responsible for self-administered and third-party penetration tests of our cloud data centers, and annual secure-coding practices and reviews.

  • No Third-Party Components

    Code42 maintains operational ownership and monitoring of all systems. Software, storage, network monitoring, and security components are developed and maintained in-house at our U.S. headquarters.

  • Development

    Our development teams follow Open Web Application Security Project standards and conduct code reviews focused on secure transmission and storage of data, initial mapping and analysis of an application’s attack surface and identification of security vulnerabilities.

  • Engineering

    Our cloud engineering personnel maintain operational ownership and monitoring of network, systems, applications and security at our global data centers, including system health, secure data transmission, protection from denial of service, physical access and network and system vulnerabilities.
