Our Availability Policy encompasses proactive monitoring, load balancing techniques, and infrastructure scalability to ensure high service availability. We invest in robust infrastructure that can handle peak usage periods and sudden spikes in traffic, ensuring your chatbot remains accessible and responsive.

Infrastructure Security
Our chatbot company takes infrastructure security to the next level, implementing a fortified defense against potential threats. With cutting-edge firewalls, advanced intrusion detection systems, vulnerability assessments, and rigorous security audits, we go above and beyond industry standards to provide you with the utmost protection for your valuable information.

Physical Access Control
Talkie is hosted on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), in its data center located in the United States, Europe, Abu Dhabi, and the United Kingdom. By leveraging GCP's advanced security features, we ensure that your data is hosted in a secure and reliable environment. GCP’s data center operations have been accredited under:ISO 27001SOC 1 and SOC 2/SSAE 16/ISAE 3402 (Previously SAS 70 Type II)PCI Level 1FISMA ModerateSarbanes-Oxley (SOX)More information on GCP’s security can be found here.In addition to this, we have implemented strict access control measures, including biometric authentication, and video surveillance, to limit access to authorized personnel only within our office premises. By securing our office spaces, we ensure that physical assets and infrastructure associated with our chatbot platform are protected from unauthorized access, enhancing the overall security of our operations.Firewall
To safeguard our infrastructure from unauthorized access and malicious activities, we utilize robust firewall services provided by Google Cloud Platform. Firewalls act as a barrier between our systems and external networks, filtering incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predefined security rules.

Penetration Testing
We conduct regular penetration testing, performed by skilled and certified professionals, to identify vulnerabilities and potential entry points for unauthorized access. By simulating real-world attacks, we gain valuable insights into any weaknesses in our system.

Third-Party Audit
Third-party security testing of the Talkie application is performed by independent and reputable security consulting firms. Findings from each assessment are reviewed with the assessors, risk ranked, and assigned to the responsible team.Talkie undergoes regular third-party independent audits on a regular basis and can provide SOC-2 compliance audit summaries upon request.

Application Security
We understand the critical importance of application security in protecting your valuable data and ensuring a safe user experience. Our commitment to best security practices goes beyond industry standards, as we continuously strive to exceed expectations.

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
We have implemented Two-Factor Authentication on Talkie. 2FA adds an extra layer of security by requiring users to provide two forms of identification to access their accounts. By combining something the user knows (such as a password) with something the user possesses (such as a unique code sent to their mobile device), we significantly reduce the risk of unauthorized access to your data.

Static IPs
To enhance security, we utilize static IPs for Talkie. Static IPs provide a stable and secure connection by assigning a fixed, unique IP address to each user or system. By restricting access to known and trusted IP addresses, we minimize the risk of unauthorized access or potential attacks from unknown sources.

Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC)
As part of our SDLC, we conduct regular security audits every quarter to identify potential vulnerabilities and address them promptly. These audits involve comprehensive code reviews, penetration testing, and vulnerability assessments. By proactively identifying and addressing security issues, we continuously improve our application's resilience and block any potential loopholes.
