Security & Performance

Simplicant is the leading social recruiting platform and applicant tracking system built from the ground up to harness the power of the newest and most effective paradigms in talent acquisition, recruitment marketing, employee referrals and applicant tracking combined in one complete and integrated social recruitment management system.


We are dedicated to providing a highly secure and reliable cloud-based platform to serve your organization’s recruitment needs. Simplicant is committed to the security of our customer’s data and we regularly take measures to maintain the highest standards possible for all aspects of cloud security to ensure that customer data is safe. Below are some of the key elements of our security infrastructure.


Simplicant’s data storage and computing infrastructure is powered by Amazon Web Services, a compliant and reliable cloud services platform. Amazon’s data centers have been accredited under:

  • ISO 27001
  • SOC 1/SOC 2/SSAE 16/ISAE 3402
  • PCI Level 1
  • FISMA Moderate
  • Sarbanes-Oxley(SOX)

The technology offered by AWS guarantees a range of holistic security measures, including but not limited to, network firewalls, data encryption, DDoS mitigation protocols and Identity and Access Management. All data is encrypted by default and protected from several types of failures. Please see Amazon Security Policy page for more information. AWS cloud services have been certified by the following bodies.



Our platform has a multi-tenant architecture that leverages AWS to provide secure application level access to your employees and end-users. The information storage and exchange protocols follow the highest industry standards. Simplicant pages are secured via HTTPS. The information exchanged between end-users and Simplicant is encrypted with 256-bit SSL.

Additionally, we follow secure industry coding practices and ascertain that we have protection from the OWASP Top 10. We also follow the practice of performing internal security assessments of our entire application stack, on a regular basis, to identify and address any vulnerabilities that we can find, further ensuring secure access to our application.


All communication between your end-users and the Simplicant servers is encrypted with 256-bit SSL encryption. Sensitive information, such as passwords, integration keys etc. are hashed and never saved or transmitted as plain text. Application access is controlled via role-based user privileges, which allows end users to see and work on information they have been granted access to. Users from one organization do not and cannot have access to any data from another organization.

We have strict internal controls and processes in place to handle access to customer data. Only authorized and designated employees have access to customer data and only on an as- needed basis to provide the highest quality product support and maintenance.


Simplicant infrastructure has multiple levels of data redundancy and robust measures in place for backups and disaster recovery. We are also able to provide localized cloud data storage for customers who need it. We ensure high availability and guarantee 99% average uptime of our service.
