More than 17,000 customers trust LiveAgent with their data. Data security is of utmost importance for us. We combine multiple security features to ensure customer, employee and business data is always protected so our customers can rest easy knowing their data is safe, their communication is secure, and their businesses are protected.

Product security

Two-factor authentication
2-Step Verification adds more security to your LiveAgent account. When you have 2-Factor Authentication enabled, any attempt to log into your account must be accompanied by the code that you generated in Google Authenticator app. 2-Step Verification can help keep unknown people out, even if they have your password.

HTTPS encryption
All LiveAgent hosted accounts run over a secure connection using the HTTPS protocol. Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. It means all communication between your browser and LiveAgent is encrypted, including your chat and email communication.

Secure credential storage
We follow latest best practices to store and protect user login credentials and passwords in the cloud.

IP & network restrictions
Your LiveAgent Agent panel can be configured to only allow access from specific IP address ranges.

API Security
LiveAgent REST API is restricted to accredited users based on username and password or username and API tokens.

SPAM filtering
LiveAgent has an intelligent built in SPAM filter that learns and improves its filtering capabilities continuously. 

On top of that, we have our bug bounty program, by which independent security researches can help us to protect our application.

Architecture Security zones in our architecture
Our network security architecture consists of multiple security zones. More sensitive systems, like application servers and database servers, are protected in our most trusted zones. Other systems like loadbalancers are housed in zones commensurate with their sensitivity, depending on function, information classification, and risk.

Backups and near real-time snapshots are taken at various intervals and multiple copies are securely stored on different servers. Our disaster recovery program ensures that our services remain available or are easily recoverable in the case of a disaster.

Our redundancy architecture eliminates a single point of failure. Combined with comprehensive backups, we ensure customer data is replicated and available across production systems.
