When Russia started aggression towards Ukraine, Setapp was absolutely ready. We have prioritized the reliability and security of Setapp since the very first day of its release, so the core security measures were always here. After several weeks of the Russian-Ukrainian war, we can also state that the Setapp team is safe and continues working.
For security reasons, we cannot disclose all the details, but let us emphasize 5 publicly known security aspects of Setapp.
Data and infrastructure
We use Amazon Web Services to host users' data and all our infrastructure. This means that all physical servers are stored worldwide (USA, UK, and Ireland) and safe. We do not store any vulnerable data in Ukraine.
We work with a reliable payment provider — Paddle.com. This is a worldwide-known reseller that provides its services to 245 countries and territories. The Paddle’s team and technical resources are located in the United Kingdom.
We use industry-standard encryption to protect your data in transit. This is commonly referred to as transport layer security (“TLS”) or secure socket layer (“SSL”) technology. Once we receive your data, we protect it on our servers using a combination of technical, physical, and logical security safeguards.
As a product, Setapp communicates with a big number of third-party vendors. That’s why it is of high importance to understand who and how use our data. To ensure the security of data throughout the network, Setapp has become an honored owner of the SOC 2 Type 1 accreditation.
Last but not least is our team. MacPaw checks the safety of each specialist on a daily basis. While many of us are involved in defending our land and volunteering projects, our daily work and our customers are still among the highest priorities for all Macpawians.
All in all, Setapp is and has always been a highly secured platform with no connection to Ukraine except for the team location. Since all Macpawians are in a safe place now, nothing changes in your experience with Setapp. Thanks to all our dear customers who stay with Ukraine and think of its people.
