Security

Course Approval protects your data with advanced security features and policy guidelines that meet the most rigorous enterprise specifications.

Platform Compliance

Course Approval's platform is SOC 2 Type 1 & 2 compliant. Certification of SOC 2 compliance certifies our practices for security, availability, and confidentiality by an independent 3rd party auditing program and the leading standard for cloud security control.

Our core commitment is to the security and integrity of your data. We chose Amazon Web Services (AWS), the world’s leading cloud service platform, to host our infrastructure.

Network Security

We use Sqreen, a third-party network security solution, to monitor and protect our infrastructure from automated scanners, bots, and targeted attacks. It blocks attacks and alerts in case of critical threats. It also brings additional features like IP blocking and firewalls that monitor and control incoming and outgoing network traffic.


Course Approval includes a dedicated rapid-response security team for 24/7 prevention monitoring and reactive response to security alerts and events.

We can also use Single Sign On to require your students to login using a specified vendor such as Google or Office 365.

Backup and Restore

Course Approval enforces strict Disaster Recovery policies including daily encrypted backups, daily testing procedures, and strategic disaster recovery planning and training to ensure that data are available and restorable in case of disaster.

Course Approval applications are backed up on a daily basis and stored across multiple locations that are separate from the database servers.

All daily backups can be restored instantly by our support staff. Users are free to manually backup their data at any time by exporting their data to a CSV file.
