Protecting your data

Businesses trust Quickly to securely manage and protect supplier and customer payment data.

Daily backups

Databases are automatically backed up hourly and retained daily across availability zones to protect businesses against lost, corrupted, stolen or destroyed data. Backups are tested for recovery semi-annually to ensure recoverability.

Data storage

Business data is logically separated and inaccessible to each other. Access by authorized Quickly staff is logged for security.


Quickly employs AES-256-GCM encryption for all sensitive business information, including bank accounts and credit card numbers. We do not store CVV, PIN, EMV, or mag data.

Information in transit

Quickly safeguards data in transit with TLSv1.2 and strong cyphers, excluding outdated SSLv3, TLSv1.0, and TLSv1.1 from our systems. This ensures that data is encrypted in transit and maintains integrity.

Secure network setup

Quickly’s platform operates in a closed VPN to ensure secure access. We conduct regular system updates and respond swiftly to major vulnerabilities by applying patches.

Firewalls and IDS/IPS

Quickly employs firewalls with Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems to guard against active and passive threats. These systems monitor network traffic for abnormalities, malicious code, and vulnerabilities. If suspicious activity is detected, the IPS will take the action required to protect the servers while alerting Quickly's security team for monitoring review.

System updates

The servers and network appliances are regularly updated to ensure all software is up to date. If a major vulnerability is discovered, patches are applied immediately by Quickly's system and security team. Per our compliance, all updates are logged as part of our change-control policies.

By partnering with Amazon Web Services, we can ensure secure and up-to-date infrastructure at a managed service level. Our stateless environments allow Quickly to adapt to ever-changing security risks and scalable workloads.

Service uptime

Quickly devotes significant resources to ensure the most uptime possible for our networks and clients. These safeguards include redundant virtual environments across cloud-based data centers, using service providers that utilize best industry practices including backup power generation and dual-path power distribution systems.

Strict authentication and access controls

To safeguard Quickly's data and systems, we enforce strict access controls, such as VPN requirements, defined user roles, multifactor authentication, and comprehensive logging for network access and activity. Our internal office networks are isolated from platform environments and have restricted wireless access. Internal systems are only accessible by employees who are using authorized VPN-encrypted connections.

These tests will be done by both our in-house security team and third-party professionals. Any vulnerabilities will be addressed immediately by our teams.
