Security

Does UbiOps store my data?

UbiOps only stores and processes your data for handling requests to your models. Data passed to UbiOps is deleted afterwards when the request is finished. We only store the logs of your models and scripts that you run so you can retrieve it from the log explorer or through the API.

Is UbiOps safe?

In case of the SaaS offering, UbiOps comes with the highest security standards. Both your data and models are encrypted at rest. You can opt two-factor-authentication. Your data traffic is encrypted with TLS. When used on-prem or in a VPC, the security is dependent on you.
