Security Measures

The AfterShip Services are hosted on Amazon Web Service and Google Cloud Platform in the United States of America and protected by security and environmental controls. Amazon Web Service and Google Cloud Platform regularly undergo independent verification of security, privacy, and compliance controls. Additional details are available at:

AfterShip configures the firewalls on the production environment according to industry best practices and monitor unauthorized intrusions' services. AfterShip also uses Cloudflare WAF to block cyber-attacks. AfterShip performs automated vulnerability scans on the production environment and remediate any findings that present a risk to our environment. Additionally, AfterShip undergoes annual third-party penetration testing. A bug bounty program through HackerOne is also maintained, where security researchers are invited to submit vulnerabilities to AfterShip throughout the year. Additionally, the security review process facilitated by the security team is an integral part of AfterShip development lifecycle and the industry security coding and review practices are followed.

AfterShip regularly performs security awareness training for all staff. AfterShip also offers 24x7 security monitoring and incident response.

SSO and Two-Factor Authentication

The AfterShip products allow users to login to their AfterShip accounts using built-in AfterShip login or "Sign in with Google" login. AfterShip allows authorized clients access to AfterShip through Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and API-Request Authentication.

Data Encryption to Prevent Unauthorized Access

AfterShip encrypts customer data aligning with industry-tested and accepted standards. We use TLS 1.2 to encrypt all traffic in transit.

AfterShip monitors the changing cryptographic landscape closely and work promptly to upgrade the service to respond to new cryptographic weaknesses as they are discovered and implement best practices as they evolve.
