How Xano keeps data secure and Private

Data Security

All data stored within Xano is encrypted at rest. Transmission of data is done securely over SSL. Access to workspaces is limited to the team settings defined on the instance, which is governed by the owner of the instance. Additionally, all of Xano's servers are hosted on Google Cloud, which is fully HIPAA compliant.
HIPAA compliance can be added as an upgrade to any paid plan for $500/mo and comes with a signed BAA with your entity. HIPAA compliance comes standard with any Enterprise Plan.
This upgrade migrates your server to a hardened location for processing, storing, or transmitting ePHI. Additional workspaces can be used for separating personally identifiable information from the main workspace, or a 3rd party vault server can be used instead.
What ePHI needs to be protected?
Information protected by HIPAA typically includes:
  • Names & birthdates
  • Dates pertaining to a patient’s
    • birth
    • death
    • treatment schedule (illness and medical care)
  • Contact information
    • telephone number(s)
    • physical addresses
    • email
  • Social Security Numbers (SSI)
  • Medical Record Numbers
  • Photographs & digital images
  • Fingerprints
  • Voice recordings
Any other form of unique identification or account number(s).

Data Privacy

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) requires the protection and confidential handling of protected health information by covered entities. Apart from having both HIPAA and ISO27001 compliance as a foundation, you are in complete control of how data is collected and stored on your Xano Instance giving you the ultimate flexibility around ensuring your users' data is confidentially and securely stored.
