Security: Technical details🔐

Data transfer encryption

We encrypt all data that goes between you and Sonix using field-standard TLS (Transport Layer Security). Your data is encrypted when transferred between data centers for backup and replication.

Data storage encryption

We use server-side encryption with one of the strongest block ciphers available, 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256). This cipher secures both our database and your data at rest.

Network protection

Sonix has multiple layers of security including firewalls, intrusion protection systems and network segregation. Sonix’s security services are configured, monitored, and maintained according to field best practices. We partner with field-leading security vendors to leverage their expertise and global threat intelligence.

Secure data centers

Sonix’s servers are located within enterprise-grade hosting facilities that have robust physical security controls to prevent physical access. These controls include 24/7/365 monitoring and surveillance, on-site security staff and regular ongoing security audits.

Two-factor authentication

Sonix’s two factor authentication or 2FA is a security feature that adds even more protection to your Sonix account. Sonix will require a six-digit security code generated by your phone (in addition to your password) when you sign in to your account.

Security monitoring

Our security teams continuously monitor security systems, event logs, notifications and alerts from all systems to identify and manage threats.
