Rippling’s infrastructure has been designed to be fault tolerant. All databases operate in a cluster configuration and the application tier scales using load balancing technology that dynamically meets demand.
Strict access controls
Access to all Rippling systems is managed through our identity provider, which automates user provisioning, enforces 2FA, and logs all activity.
Server security and monitoring
All servers are configured using a documented set of security guidelines, and images are managed centrally. Changes to the company’s infrastructure are tracked, and security events are logged appropriately.
We hold our employees to the highest standards
Formal security policies and incident response plan
Rippling maintains a set of comprehensive security polices that are kept up to date to meet the changing security environment. These materials are made available to all employees during training and through the company’s knowledge base.
Strict onboarding and offboarding process
Every new hire must pass a thorough background check and attend a “Legal and Security” training course, as well as an InfoSec training course once a year. We instantly disable departing employee’s devices, apps, and access during offboarding via Rippling’s IDM and MDM products.
Continuous security training
The Rippling Security Team provides continuous education on emerging security threats, performs phishing awareness campaigns, and communicates with employees regularly.
Rippling manages visitors, office access, and overall office security via a formal office security program.
