With Couchdrop’s SaaS SFTP, we handle all of the infrastructure management and maintenance for you. This includes security management, with several protocols and safeguards in place to ensure your data is always secure.
As a true SaaS platform, Couchdrop handles all the infrastructure management for you. This means no spinning up virtual machines or software installation. Couchdrop scales automatically to meet your needs.
Couchdrop never stores your data and meets HIPAA and SOC 2 standards. Connect your own storage and use Couchdrop for secure automated file transfers in real time between your existing storage platforms.

Couchdrop meets several security compliance standards so you can be confident that your data will be handled properly.
SOC 2 is a security standard developed by the American Institute of CPAs and covers five trust service principles. These are Privacy, Security, Confidentiality, Processing Integrity, and Availability. Comprehensive requirements must be met in each of these areas for SOC 2 compliance.
Keeping SOC 2 compliance requires regular audits by a licensed third party, and reports are available on request through our Trust Center.
HIPAA refers to the Health Insurance and Accountability Act of 1996 and was designed to ensure that protected health information is properly protected.
Any cloud service provider, including Couchdrop, that works with HIPAA data must meet strict guidelines.
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation in the European Union. It is currently the strongest data privacy and security law in the world, with rigorous standards and requirements that must be met to stay compliant.
To stay GDPR compliant, organizations must meet requirements in areas of data security, Lawful Basis and Transparency, Accountability and Governance, and Privacy Rights.
