Security

Your data is your data. It is protected with the upmost care.


You can sleep well knowing that your data is safe. Lightpost has been built with this in mind from day one.
Outlined below are just some of the ways that your data is protected.

  Servers & Hosting

How we host our technology

  • Hosting infrastructure runs primarily on Linode as our primary hosting provider, and Digital Ocean as our off-site backup.

  • Extensive logs and metrics is kept on activity that happens on Lightpost servers.

  • Servers are only accessible via an SSH connection. SFTP and other access is disabled.

  • Two-factor authentication is enabled for all third party services related to Lightpost.

  Lightpost Application

What powers Lightpost

  • Lightpost is a SaaS application built on an industry leading web framework: Laravel.

  • The framework and application dependencies are continually kept up to date.

  • All database calls are sanitized before execution.

  • CSRF tokens are utilized to prevent cross site request forgeries.

  • All application errors and warnings are logged into a bug tracker for detailed analysis.

  Encryption

How data is secured

  • All Lightpost web and mobile apps transmit data over encrypted, TLS-enabled connections (HTTPS).

  • Passwords are stored using the one-way, bcrypt hashing method. Passwords can never be seen or retrieved, even if you wanted to.

  • Specific information identified as sensitive in our database is encrypted at rest.

  Backups

We employ several methods for data backup to make sure your data is never lost and our backups are never old.

How data is stored

  • The Lightpost database employs encrypted, streaming replication to a secondary off-site location.

  • The primary database takes daily, weekly and monthly backups.

  • The secondary database takes daily, weekly and monthly backups, and stores these remotely at an off-site location.

  • Backup and replication processes are automatically and continually monitored. Priority alerts are triggered if replication or backups fail.
