Technology & Security

Your data security is critical, that’s why we host it securely.

Our Environment

We take our technology seriously. LaunchPad Recruits runs on a commercial grade stack with built in high availability and scalability. We have automated load balancing and fine-grained monitoring to give us the visibility we need to keep everything running smoothly.

We have the essential infrastructure services such as persistent storage, data backup/restore, and system diagnostics. Components are monitored for security vulnerabilities and updated continuously as vulnerabilities are discovered and patched. Storage, CPU and memory utilization levels are all tracked for conformance to  our standards.

Data Security

The security of your data is critical. All data (excluding video) is transferred to and from our servers via SSL with 256 bit encryption.

Your data is redundantly stored in multiple physical locations in an ISO 27001 certified datacentre.

Our system is hosted on a secure Amazon EC2 instance with data stored on Amazon S3. Amazon’s world class network provides significant protection against traditional network security issues. Security within Amazon EC2 is provided on multiple levels: the operating system (OS) of the host system, the virtual instance operating system or guest OS, a firewall, and signed API calls.

Our servers run host based Intrusion Detection Systems, Intrusion Prevention Systems and Host Based Firewalls to protect against attacks.

Access by the LaunchPad support team to data is managed by strict user access control, managed to ensure that data is only seen by those that need access.

We are Pen tested annually by a 3rd party to ensure that the system remains secure.


We do everything we can to ensure system stability, but just in case, we backup your data every hour to prevent unforeseen events resulting in the loss of your precious candidate information. Videos are backed up in real time.

System Availability

Our infrastructure is built with high availability at its core with features such as automated server failover and zero downtime deploys. We target at least 99. 9% system availability in any given month, but we typically achieve far higher.


Geographic location
of data

All data from European users is kept within the EEA, allowing you to be confident that you won’t break European data export rules.
