Security Overview

Network Security

Data routing in trocco occurs within Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) environment. Additionally, when enabled for supported connectors, your data during transit is safeguarded with Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption.

Data Retention

There are some cases where trocco may retain customer data for functionality purposes.

  • When running an ETL pipeline, trocco temporarily stores data for transformation purposes. This data is deleted after the job completes, as the container built to run the job is deleted.
  • Data for preview purposes is stored in trocco if Deleting Preview Data in the settings is disabled. If you don't want trocco to store preview data for your ETL pipeline, you can enable Delete Preview Data in the settings.

Dedicated Containers

Each time you transfer data using trocco, a new container is generated, meaning your data is isolated from other customer data. After the transfer is complete, the container used to run the job is deleted.

User Passwords and Credentials

To safeguard your sensitive information, such as passwords and credentials, trocco uses AWS Key Management Service (KMS) for encryption and decryption. This information is stored in a database isolated from the Internet.

Limited Period to Keep Your Login Status

The login status will be kept for 48 hours.
After 48 hours from the last time you used trocco, you will be automatically logged out.
This minimizes the risk of unauthorized use of your account by a third party.
