Privacy and Security

“We have a security-first mindset which applies to everything we do at Prisidio. We realize that you’re entrusting us with your most important and sensitive information and we take that responsibility seriously.”

Glenn Shimkus, Co-founder & CEO

At Prisidio, your privacy and the security of your data are our highest priorities. From the team we’ve built to the measures we take to protect your data, we are committed to providing you with a safe and secure platform to store and share your sensitive documents and information.

Please read further to learn more about our approach to protecting your account and data.

Identity Verification

We always make sure it’s you.

Access to your Prisidio vault starts with the basics: a username and a strong password. In addition to your username and password, we also require all Prisidio members (even free invited users) to use multi-factor authentication (MFA) to access their vault.

What is multi-factor authentication?
Multi-factor authentication is an effective way to make sure you are who you say you are. It also provides an additional layer of protection to your account by requiring two or more factors of authentication. Using MFA can block over 99.9% of attacks that would compromise accounts.

What is biometric authentication?
For an extra measure of security and convenience, we support biometric authentication (face or fingerprint recognition) when using our mobile app on an iOS or Android device.

Data Encryption

Your personal items and information are protected.

Your information is secure within Prisidio. We use Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption to protect your data in transit or at rest in your vault. AES 256-bit encryption provides the same high level of security adopted by financial institutions and government organizations.

Application Security

We’re vigilant about ensuring your vault is completely secure.

  • We require multi-factor authentication for all Prisidio users.
  • We have partnered with an industry-leading authentication platform for identity and access management.
  • Prisidio is built securely on the world’s leading cloud computing platform.
  • All source code for our application is scanned for security vulnerabilities prior to a release.
  • All files uploaded to Prisidio are scanned for malware; any infected files are blocked before being added to your vault.
  • We utilize next-generation security detection tools and continually monitor for threats.
  • We perform regular vulnerability scans throughout the business and across our products (web and mobile).
  • We perform continuous internal penetration testing and conduct annual third-party penetration testing for compliance.

Security Compliance

We meet or exceed strict security standards.

Prisidio partners with external organizations that regularly test and certify our infrastructure. This ensures our systems are compliant and certified on an ongoing basis.

  • Security and infrastructure audits are conducted regularly.
  • We work with America’s cyber defense agency, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), to protect your vault and reduce the risk of any external threat.
  • We perform continuous SOC 2 reporting to demonstrate our compliance with controls to ensure the security of customer data, the availability of our system, the accurate processing of data, and the confidentiality and privacy of our members.
  • We have completed our SOC 2 plus HIPAA examination which demonstrates we meet the security commitments made to our customers as well as the security and breach notification requirements, applicable to Business Associates, set forth in the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in all material respects.

Privacy Control

You decide who has access to your vault and information.

With Prisidio, you are in full control of the data in your vault and who can access it. As a vault owner you can:

  • Decide who is allowed in your vault.
  • Fully control exactly what items and information a person in your vault can access.
  • Fully control exactly what actions a person in your vault can perform.
  • Be notified in real-time when your vault has been accessed. Or view your Activity Log to see who logged in and what they’ve done.
  • Instantly block a person who’s accessed your vault if they’re accessing it from a physical location not familiar to you, or if you simply forgot to remove their access.
