Security and Data Protection Measures

PING operates on a cloud-based solution fortified with enterprise-grade security measures, guaranteeing the confidentiality of your internal communications.

Our security measures are robust and comprehensive. Messages in transit are protected by SSL encryption, ensuring the highest level of data security. Images and videos are sent as secure links, preserving the recipient’s confidentiality. We also prioritise GDPR compliance, which means we go the extra mile to safeguard personally identifiable information (PII) from any unauthorised distribution, providing you with peace of mind knowing your data is handled with the utmost care and protection.

Participants have the flexibility to join via either the mobile or web app, ensuring accessibility from various devices. Adding participants during the call is seamless, with support for up to 150 attendees. These calls take place on Crises Control’s secure conference bridge, providing an additional layer of protection separate from your IT infrastructure. Furthermore, they are recorded, enabling post-incident review and analysis for further improvement and accountability.
