Assuring the confidentiality of data that your customers trust you with is one of your core operational imperatives. When handling this data for you, our top priority is to deliver a high-performance service where the safety of customer data is at the forefront of all decisions we make.


Cloud Infrastructure

MachForm Cloud is hosted on Amazon’s Web Services (AWS). Amazon manages risk and undergoes a risk assessment to ensure compliance with industry standards. Amazon’s data centers have been accredited under:

  • ISO 27001
  • SOC 1 and SOC 2/SSAE 16/ISAE 3402 (Previously SAS 70 Type II)
  • PCI Level 1
  • FISMA Moderate
  • Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX)



MachForm Cloud employs several layers of protection:


1 – All MachForm Cloud servers are protected by AWS Security Groups, which allows only traffic of specific types through to their servers. A security group acts as a virtual firewall that controls the traffic for one or more instances.


2 – All MachForm Cloud servers are protected by Deep Security, a comprehensive cloud security suite provided by Trend Micro. Deep Security protection includes:

  • Intrusion Prevention System
  • Firewall
  • Log Inspection



MachForm Cloud employs Amazon’s RDS, a secure database service whose access is limited to local, isolated networks only. Each MachForm Cloud instance has their own isolated database, database user and host-based access privileges.


All databases are encrypted (secure data at rest) using industry standard encryption (AES-256).



Amazon RDS provides database availability and durability. All MachForm Cloud servers are fully backed up with the last 7 days of data. These include file snapshots of the servers, created once per day.


System Security

  • MachForm Cloud service is protected via SSL. Your connection with the MachForm Cloud service is encrypted. SSL encryption is available on all MachForm Cloud plans.
  • MachForm Cloud uses up to date server software which is regularly patched and security updates implemented.
  • MachForm Cloud automates its deployment of servers. We have tested and maintained processes to create and manage secure servers.


Server Monitoring

MachForm Cloud uses a 3rd-party monitoring service (Monitis) as a second method of gaining insight into our servers performance. This piece of our technical infrastructure allows an independent, detailed view of server uptime and other statistics.


Billing Security

We do not store your credit card data on any of our servers; we use FastSpring to provide billing services.

FastSpring is an order processing company that handles sales for thousands of software companies world-wide. FastSpring addresses all PCI compliance issues and securely processes sensitive data. All FastSpring servers are PCI compliant and adhere to PCI DSS regulations.
