IT Security and Compliance

Our Compliance Stack at ResGuard

Our commitment to data privacy and security is embedded in every part of our business.
Use this Trust Center to learn about our security measures and read our security documentation.

Platform and Network Security

The foundation of security at ResGuard is infrastructure security. ResGuard relies on our Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to logically isolate our internal networks. We maintain configured security groups to control and restrict network access through configured inbound and outbound rules.


We build highly available products that service various monitoring and observability needs for our customers through scalability inherited from our CSP. We adhere to our service level agreements (SLAs) of 99.7% availability. Additional information about our SLA can be found within our Master Services Agreement.

Personnel Security

At ResGuard, we encourage all employees to participate in helping secure our customer data and company assets. Where applicable by law, ResGuard performs background screenings on personnel prior to joining the organization. All ResGuard personnel undergo regular security and privacy awareness training that weaves security into technical and non-technical roles. Our security training materials are based on individual roles to ensure employees have the tools to handle the specific security-oriented challenges they encounter in their jobs.

Product Security

Product security is of paramount importance at ResGuard. We incorporate security into the design of our products from the beginning stages of our software development lifecycle. We develop products in line with general Agile methodologies and integrate security throughout the Agile release cycle. This allows us to discover vulnerabilities sooner, so we can address them more rapidly than we would if we used longer release cycles. Well-defined change management policies and procedures determine when and how changes occur. This philosophy is central to DevOps security and the development methodologies that have driven ResGuard adoption.

Patch Management

ResGuard releases software patches as part of our continuous integration process. We strive to ensure patches that can impact end users are applied as soon as possible and within our established service level agreements (SLA) by sending end user notifications and scheduling service windows.

Physical Security

As a SaaS provider, ResGuard production infrastructure is hosted in cloud service provider (CSP) environments. These CSPs manage physical and environmental security controls for ResGuard production servers, including buildings, locks, and door keys.

Physical security practices at the ResGuard offices include strict enforcement of badge access to enter the building, as well as to access ResGuard floors and secure work areas. All visitors are required to provide identification to receive a visitor’s badge and are to be escorted by a ResGuard employee at all times.

Access Management

ResGuard grants access to assets and sensitive information on a need-to-know basis based on role. Access is controlled based on the principle of least privilege, meaning users have only the level of access required to perform their job functions. Additionally, we enforce multi-factor authentication, which includes strong passwords and a secondary factor. ResGuard third parties do not have direct access to production systems.

We monitor and log access to all production environments for security purposes. Additionally, access is audited and baselined to meet our security and compliance requirements.

Protection of Customer Data

Data submitted to the ResGuard service by authorized users is considered confidential. This data is protected in transit across public networks and encrypted at rest. Customer data is not authorized to exit the ResGuard production service environment except in limited circumstances such as to support a customer request.

All data transmitted between ResGuard and our users is protected using Transport Layer Security (TLS) and HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS). If encrypted communication is interrupted, the ResGuard application is inaccessible.

ResGuard has implemented controls to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of administrative credentials and access mechanisms, and we enforce full-disk encryption and unique credentials for workstations.


ResGuard monitors critical infrastructure for security-related events by using a custom implementation of open source and commercial technologies. Activity data such as API calls and operating system-level calls are logged to a central point, where the information is passed through a series of custom rules designed to identify malicious or unapproved behavior. The results of these rules are fed into an orchestration platform that triggers automated actions, which may include directly alerting the security team or prompting additional authentication requirements.

CSP Hosting

AWS Cloud - ResGuard is not running any on-premise data centers.

Audit Logging

ResGuard has an extensive product logging mechanism including an audit log console accessible for customers. Additionally audit Logging is enabled for all customer support, web end user applications, technical operations applications, and staging and production management infrastructure.

Multi-Factor Authentication

A central identity provider and multi-factor authentication is enabled for all customer support, web end user applications, technical operations applications, staging and production management infrastructure. ResGuard users are required to use multi-factor authentication when accessing the production environment.

Role-Based Access Control

Formal role-based access controls limit access to system and system components are created and these are enforced by the access control system. When formal role-based access controls are not possible, authorized user IDs with two factor authentication are used. ResGuard also adheres to the principle of least priviledge.

Daily Backups

ResGuard shall maintain a contemporaneous backup that can be recovered immediately at any point in time unless during a disaster. Backups take place on a daily basis, with full incremental backups every week. We do not use tapes. We archive data and back it up incrementally, in an attempt to ensure that data is usable and readily available.


Data at rest is encrypted with AES 256


All data transmitted between ResGuard and ResGuard users is protected using Transport Layer Security (TLS) and HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS). If encrypted communication is interrupted the ResGuard application is inaccessible.

Code Analysis

As part of our secure development lifecycle, there are peer reviews, static analysis and dynamic analysis testing prior to committing code to production.

Vulnerability & Patch Management

ResGuard performs monthly scans of servers and networks, and identified vulnerabilities are tracked and remediated according to ResGuard’s Vulnerability Management procedures. ResGuard also performs monthly application vulnerability scans of critical environments, in addition to static code analysis to ensure the security and integrity of ResGuard’s environments and products. All identified vulnerabilities are assigned to an owner, and remediated according to ResGuard’s Vulnerability Management procedures.

Password Security

Multi-factor authentication is required to access ResGuard's production environment. Where multi-factor authentication is not possible, ResGuard follows the following password standards:

  • A minimum length of 8 characters
  • At least one lowercase letter
  • At least one number
  • At least one non-alphanumeric character
Network Time Protocol

Systems and network devices utilize a common time synchronization service. NTP check is included in the ResGuard agent.

Separate Production Environment

ResGuard maintains a staging environment for testing, separate from its production environment.

Endpoint Security

Disk Encryption: All ResGuard employee laptops use full-disk encryption

Endpoint Detection & Response: Anti-malware controls are in place to protect workstations and servers. The engines supporting these anti-malware tools are updated continuously.

Network Security

Firewall: ResGuard's firewall rules are set to deny all by default

SIEM: All Security relevant log data is ingested in our centralized SIEM system to analyze and detect suspicious activity on all technical layers.

Incident Response

At ResGuard, when an incident is identified, a security incident ticket is created with the details of the event, including date and time the incident occurred, the nature of the incident, and how the incident impacts customers. The creation of that case triggers the notification of appropriate security team members. These team members immediately initiate an investigation to assess the scope and impact of the situation, and to determine the actions necessary for mitigation.

Penetration Testing

Regular penetration testing via a third party is carried out.

Security Operations Center

ResGuard has a dedicated 24x7 incident response function with on-call employees to address critical incidents and service outages. If the incident is determined to be related to security, the appropriate security team members are included in the response procedures.

If you apply to a company in the RESGUARD group, that company processes your personal data as a controller. Providing your personal data is necessary for an application to proceed. You are entitled to the data subject rights of EU-GDPR and Singapore PDPA, as described later in this document.


We process your personal data to take steps prior to an employment at your request (Art. 6 (1) (b) EU-GDPR, possibly in connection with Art. 9 (2) (b) EU-GDPR. Any additional processing beyond this application process is based on another, separately declared legal basis.

Application process

Our application process is mostly conducted by email. Your application usually encompasses

  • Letter of motivation
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Description of your qualification and education
  • Attestation of your qualification and education

The extent of your application documents is determined by you. We will only collect data necessary to proceed with the application process.

If we invite you to an interview, we collect further personal data encompassing your personal interests and particulars of your professional aspirations and qualification.

Transfer of application data

We share your application data within our organisation with persons involved in the application process: human resources managers, subject matter experts and potential superiors.

RESGUARD may invoke external processors to assess your expert knowledge. We will let you know about this before we transmit your personal data to these processors so that you may check their detailed data protection policies.

If you enter into an employment contract with us, we keep your application data until the conclusion of that contract’s retention periods.

If we do not close an employment contract, we keep your application data for six months. If you want to receive updates on open positions, you may grant us your separate, written consent to do so.

Building access

If you want to visit our office locations, we require you to sign our terms of access. This form queries the name of yourself, your organisation and the person you visit as well as the security zone and the time of your visit.

The RESGUARD company you visit controls the processing of this data based on our legitimate interest in a secure office operation, which requires protecting our information and infrastructure. Providing you with the most important security rules in a provable way is an important organisational privacy measure (Art. 32 EU-GDPR) for us. We keep the signed forms for two years. Signing the terms of access is necessary to enter our offices. We do not use automated decision-making w.r.t this processing.

We do not transmit your data to third parties. If we share it among RESGUARD companies outside of Singapore, the safety of your data is ensured through standard contractual clauses.

Changes to our data protection policy

In order to ensure that our data protection policy always complies with the current legal requirements, we reserve the right to make changes at any time. This also applies in the event that the data protection policy has to be adapted due to new or revised activities, for example new services. The new data protection policy takes effect on your next visit.
