Data Management & Security Practices

Striving to become familiar with the digital practices of each software and service provider you work with is an important practice, but it isn't always easy.

When it comes to entrusting an online voting partner with personal information, such as names, emails, and phone numbers – we believe it’s a must.

We’re here to ensure your organization’s peace of mind. Our multiple levels of security are detailed below.

Data Storage, Management, and Backup


Your data will be safely stored with Amazon Web Services (AWS), our cloud-based data partner.

AWS is considered best in class for their storage, maintenance, monitoring, and data purging technologies. It's used by thousands of prominent organizations all over the world (NFL, Netflix, American Heart Association, and Formula One to name a few).

Security Assessments and Technology Certifications

Third-party assessments and certifications are an integral protection mechanism for any digital business.

Thousands of eBallot customers are protected each day by our cybersecurity partners who keep a watchful eye on our products, services, and practices.


SSL Domain & Data Encryption

SSL certificates allow for data (like vote responses) to be transmitted and stored securely.

  • They provide encrypted communications between our websites and your internet browser.
  • Abiding by this protocol is essential for safely submitting sensitive information (e.g. credit card details, passwords) over the internet.
  • Our SSL certification is updated yearly.

McAfee Secure

To earn the McAfee Secure certification, our network and applications must routinely undergo audits that ensure:

  • No malware and malicious links
  • No phishing
  • No exploitable weaknesses
  • A valid SSL certificate
  • Shopper identity protection

SOC I + II Compliance

This is a customer data management audit. SOC I + II security assessment reports evaluate our information systems as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, and confidentiality.


TrustArc Certified

Particularly relevant to EU nations, Truste provides a thorough review and assessment of our site and applications for vulnerabilities.
