Data Segregation

The Quickbase multi-tenant platform segregates customer data, giving individual customer control of logical access to their data via authentication and authorization at the Realm, Account and Application layers. Realms, otherwise thought of as a sub-domain, hold customer Accounts. Within accounts are Quickbase Applications which are built and managed by the customer. Customers manage access and permissions at the Realm, Account and App layers via the Quickbase platform.

Data Retention

Quickbase removes customer data from the Quickbase platform after service termination. Data will be held in Quickbase backup systems for 6 months until it is fully purged. Quickbase sends authorized customer contacts a Certificate of Data Destruction, certifying your app data is completely purged from all Quickbase systems.

Encryption

Data on the Quickbase platform is encrypted in motion and at rest. In motion, communications sent over non-trusted internet networks are encrypted up to 256 bit (SHA2) TLS certificate, TLS 1.2 and 1.3. At rest, app data and file attachments are encrypted at the application layer use an AES 256 bit encryption key.

For more advanced compliance needs, Quickbase gives customers the option of obtaining a realm-specific key for an additional layer of data security. In addition to having a unique encryption key, customers who subscribe to this feature can rotate realm-specific encryption keys on their own schedule. Additionally we offer integration with AWS KMS.

Logging & Auditing

Operational logs from servers, devices and services are secured in a 3rd-party log management platform which performs log analysis, alerting and reporting as well as investigation capabilities for Quickbase operations, engineering and security teams. These are retained for 3 months.

Quickbase additionally provides Audit Logs as an additional feature for customers to track their realm user activity, data and schema changes to applications to ensure security standards and compliance policies are upheld. Choose to store audit logs for 6 months up to 7 years.
