Physical data center security

Share News runs on our private servers in the IronMountain Fortrust data center in Denver, Colorado. The IronMountain data center has multiple layers of physical security including key pass, armed guards, biometric, and physical keys. Additionally, we utilize a private subterranian vault under the rocky mountains for backup and disaster recovery. All backups are encrypted with AES-256 encryption.

More information on the data center can be found here

Secure connections and data in-transit

Share News uses SSL/TLS for all data transfer between your browser and our servers. We default to using strong cipher suites and enable Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) when it is supported by your browser.

Secure storage and data at-rest

Passwords are filtered from our server logs and encrypted with Argon2, the winner of the Password Hashing Competition.

All other sensitive data are encrypted with AES-256.

Privacy

We do everything possible to safeguard your privacy and protect your data from unauthorized access. Your data is never exposed to the public unless you make it as public.

For more information, please see our privacy policy.

Two-factor authentication

Share News offers two-factor authentication for your account with time-based one-time passwords (TOTP) and authentication codes.

Secure payment information

Credit card processing is handled by TBD, a validated Level 1 PCI DSS Compliant Service Provider. Credit card information is encrypted in transit and at rest.
