Security measures we implemented to safeguard you and your data

scalability and reliability

Architecture Reliability

The database is replicated synchronously to help us quickly recover from a database failure. Preventively, we take regular snapshots of the database and securely store the snapshots on a separate data center. This guarantees database restoring in the event of a severe Amazon failure.

encrypted transactions

Encrypted Transactions

Chanty forces HTTPS using TLS (SSL), for all services including our public website. Web connections to all Chanty services are via TLS 1.2 and above. We support forward secrecy and AES-128-GCM, and prohibit insecure connections using TLS 1.1 and below or SSL 3.

data center security

Data Center Security

All servers we use at Chanty are hosted in secure, SAS 70 audited data centers. The servers are firewalled to permit the minimum traffic necessary to run the service.

Amazon ensures security with multiple certifications, including the SSAE 16. For more information on Amazon’s physical security processes, please visit

User Management – team space administrators can deprovision team members from the application interface.
