Very. We get asked this question a lot. AppSynergy runs 100% on the Google Cloud Platform; the app servers, database servers, storage, security and authentication for AppSynergy are all underpinned by the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). All users are authenticated not only at the application level, but importantly also at the database level using role based security. All data is encrypted both in transit (SSL with PFS) and at rest, including data stored in database tables, temporary files, and backups. If you store document files in your database, these are stored privately in your account's own GCP storage bucket and access is only granted via digitally-signed and time-expired download links. We believe this level of cloud security is among the best in the industry. ISO/IEC 27001 compliant.
Our plans offering a dedicated server take security a step further by placing your data in a private, dedicated database server for greater isolation.
AppSynergy runs on the following Google Cloud Platform services: Compute Engine, App Engine, Cloud Storage, and Cloud Datastore. These are independently certified to ISO27017 for cloud security and ISO27018 for privacy. They are also certified to ISO27001 as previously mentioned. Details on these certifications can be found here. Also, Google was recently given an "Authorization to Operate" by FedRamp allowing US federal agencies to use Google's infrastructure. Google is the first cloud provider to have received this authorization for its entire infrastructure (as opposed to a subset dedicated to government).
