Security is our top priority.

We put your company's privacy first at Collato. Your data is always encrypted and never used to train AI models. We take all necessary measures to ensure that your data remains protected and private.

Private, secure, compliant.

Product Security

Your data is never used to train AI

Other AI-based platforms use your data and prompts to train and store information. Collato does not. Your information is never used to train our model, and all data stays yours.

What does this mean for you? It means your confidential documents remain just that—confidential. No other Collato users outside of your organization can see or use your information.


Your data is encrypted

We have implemented strong encryption technologies to protect customer data both at rest and in transit.

We use Transport Layer Security (TLS) >= 1.2, the industry standard for secure communications, to encrypt all data in transit. This means that all data transmitted between our customers and our servers is protected against eavesdropping and tampering, ensuring that it remains private and secure.

We also use Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-GCM, the most secure encryption method currently available, to encrypt all data at rest. This means that all data stored on our servers is protected against unauthorized access, ensuring that it remains confidential and secure.

Our strong encryption in transit and at rest protocols are designed to meet or exceed the highest industry standards, providing our customers with the peace of mind that their data is always protected.


Authentication via OAuth 2.0

Collato employs OAuth 2.0, the industry-standard protocol for secure authorization. This facilitates secure data exchange, leveraging encrypted transactions to shield user information during the authentication process. Rely on a platform fortified with proven security features designed to protect user data effectively.


HTTPS with Strong Ciphers

All of our API traffic uses HTTPS, the industry standard for secure data transfer, in conjunction with industry-standard ciphers, to ensure that all API traffic is secure point-to-point. HTTPS encrypts the data being transferred between systems, making it impossible for third parties to intercept and read the information. By using industry-standard ciphers, we ensure that the encryption methods we use are up-to-date and secure.


SSO available on request

Collato understands the importance of Single Sign-On (SSO) for streamlined access management. We provide SSO integration upon request, ensuring a  smooth authentication process for all users.



SOC 2 Compliant

Collato has undergone third-party audits in order to become SOC 2 compliant. External auditors have thoroughly examined our security controls and data handling procedures, and have provided attestation reports without exception. These reports outline our robust Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance (GRC) practices which are continuously tested and monitored.

DPA Complying with GDPR

We understand the complexities of data processing regulations and the importance of compliance for our users. We have made it a priority to comply with regulations such as the GDPR.

A DPA is a legal contract between a data controller and a data processor that sets out the terms and conditions for the processing of personal data. It helps customers comply with data processing regulations by outlining the responsibilities of both parties and providing a clear understanding of how personal data will be handled. Our DPA is designed to help customers comply with data processing regulations by clearly defining the roles and responsibilities of both parties. This includes the protection of personal data, security measures, data breaches, and more. It also provides a clear understanding of the data processing activities and any subprocessors involved.
