Security Policies

This is a Summary of Valiant System Security

Application Security For Background Checks
Data transmitted to or from Valiant applications is encrypted. We store sensitive information in encrypted form using a unique key. We engage independent security experts to audit our code and test our applications for vulnerabilities.

Account Security For Employers and Candidates
We follow best practices for protecting your Valiant employer or candidate account, with passwords hashed and salted using PBKDF2, role-based access controls, and suspicious activity alerts.

Organizational Security
All Valiant employees and contractors undergo in-depth background checks before joining the team, and our in-house privacy and security experts regularly audit compliance with policies and procedures.

All employee laptops have mandatory full-disk encryption, and we strictly limit and audit access to customer data.

Infrastructure Security: SOC 2, Type II Certified
Our infrastructure service provider achieved a successful SOC 2, Type II Audit and meets rigorous standards for protecting the networks and servers powering Valiant. A SOC audit is a report on controls at a service organization relevant to Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality or Privacy. These reports are intended to meet the needs of a broad range of users that need detailed information and assurance about the controls at a service organization relevant to security, availability, and processing integrity of the systems the service organization uses to process users’ data and the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems.

High Availability


Uptime Monitoring
The Valiant platform is independently monitored 24/7 from multiple locations around the globe for any signs of downtime or service degradation.

Our US-based support team is on hand, Monday thru Friday from 8AM to 6PM ET to answer any questions should you suspect an uptime issue.

Backup and Failover
We architect Valiant platform, applications and databases across multiple availability zones for fast failover and send frequent backups in encrypted form to an offsite location.

Non-Disruptive Deployment of Code
Our engineering team uses blue/green deployments for releasing changes into production, which lets us deliver frequent updates while minimizing the need for maintenance windows with downtime.

Scalable Architecture
Valiant is a scalable, highly available, fault-tolerant US-based web service, leveraging best-of-breed infrastructure providers to optimize availability and performance.
