Security is at the heart of what we do. We feel that being transparent about our security and compliance posture is the best way to earn our customers’ trust.
Omega Point’s Security team establishes policies and controls, monitors compliance with those controls, and proves our security and compliance to third-party auditors.
Our policies are based on the following four foundational principles:
1. Access should be limited to only those with a legitimate business need and granted based on the principle of least privilege.
2. Security controls should be implemented and layered according to the principle of defense-in-depth.
3. Security controls should be applied consistently across all areas of the enterprise.
4. The implementation of controls should be iterative, continuously maturing across the dimensions of improved effectiveness, increased auditability, and decreased friction.
Omega Point has achieved a SOC 2 Type 1 attestation, and we are in the process of achieving a SOC 2 Type II attestation, expected to complete in Q4 2023.
All datastores with customer data are encrypted at rest.
Omega Point uses TLS 1.2 or higher everywhere data is transmitted over potentially insecure networks. We also use features such as HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) to maximize the security of our data in transit. Server TLS keys and certificates are managed by AWS and deployed via Application Load Balancers.
Encryption keys are managed via AWS Key Management System (KMS). KMS stores key material in Hardware Security Modules (HSMs), which prevents direct access by any individuals, including employees of Amazon and Omega Point. The keys stored in HSMs are used for encryption and decryption via Amazon’s KMS APIs. Application secrets are encrypted and stored securely via AWS Secrets Manager, and access to these values is strictly limited.
Omega Point engages with skilled third-party penetration testing partners to test our security no less than annually. All areas of the Omega Point product and cloud infrastructure are in-scope for these assessments.
Omega Point requires vulnerability scanning at key stages of our Secure Development Lifecycle (SDLC):
All corporate devices are centrally managed and are equipped with mobile device management software and anti-malware protection. Endpoint security alerts are monitored and responded to. We use MDM software to enforce secure configuration of endpoints, such as disk encryption, screen lock configuration, and software updates.
Omega Point uses a risk-based approach to vendor security. Factors which influence the inherent risk rating of a vendor include:
Once the inherent risk rating has been determined, the security of the vendor is evaluated in order to determine a residual risk rating and an approval decision for the vendor. Approved vendors are reviewed for ongoing effectiveness of security measures, following a schedule determined by their inherent risk. At a minimum, vendors who store, process, or otherwise handle Omega Point data are reviewed annually.
Omega Point secures remote access to internal resources using a modern VPN platform built on the WireGuard protocol. Secure access to external systems, such as SaaS platforms, utilizes encryption in transit in accordance with Omega Point data protection controls.
Omega Point provides comprehensive security training to all employees upon onboarding and annually through educational modules with our Security Training partner. Engineers also receive training focused on secure coding principles and practices. Omega Point’s security team shares regular threat briefings with employees to inform them of important security and safety-related updates that require special attention or action. Customer-specific security requirements are also communicated to all relevant staff.
Omega Point uses Single Sign-On to secure our identity and access management. We enforce the use of attack-resistant authentication factors, with extensive use of MFA.
