Privacy and Security
At Jama Software®, security is not an afterthought.
We understand how important data security is to you and your customers, and we work hard to ensure that data security and privacy are top considerations in all of our business operations.
Protecting our customers’ data is our highest priority. We code with Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) best practices, host in a secure AWS cloud, perform daily static and dynamic scans, PEN test (third-party) twice a year, and are SOC 2 Type 2 certified.
Jama Software is the only vendor in the requirements management and traceability space that is SOC 2 Type 2 compliant both on the application layer and the data center offerings. Additionally, Jama Connect is the only requirements management solution that is deployed via multi-tenant cloud.
Suitably validated by TÜV SÜD for safety-related development per IEC 62304

Ensures strong privacy management practices
Data transferred is secured and encrypted
Here are some of the ways we protect your IP:
One of the core reasons we use Amazon’s AWS EC2 platform is the wealth of security experience Amazon has amassed over the years in building and growing AWS. Amazon’s AWS EC2 Platform is the gold standard not only for cloud applications but also for application and data security. Amazon has successfully completed many security audits and is certified for some of the strictest and most thorough standards.
Don’t take our word for it though. Amazon provides resources to expand on its certifications and third-party audits. For details on AWS certifications and accreditation, please visit aws.amazon.com/security.
In addition to constantly monitoring our web application security, we utilize SSL certificates for all our web transactions, meaning that all data transferred between our clients and our application are encrypted.
In Jama Connect®’s multi-tenant environments, customer data resides in a unique, separate database. In addition, stored passwords are encrypted. You may designate a physical location to store your users’ personal data. Jama Software offers hosted services in North America and Europe.
Only a select group of Jama Software employees has access to our production environments and only after undergoing thorough background checks. Each is contractually bound to maintain customer confidentiality and trained on the intricacies of handling sensitive data. Additionally, we further secure these environments by providing individual credentials for each of our admins and conducting regular audits of our access logs to proactively detect any misconduct.
Jama Software will provide customers with a copy of their data upon request, as well as delete and restore data (including backups). Jama Connect stores all updates for audit purposes.
The ISO 27001 standard covers requirements and details associated with security topics, including policy, organization, building, network management, compliance, access control, and more. Jama Software’s security practices are based on this standard. For details on ISO and ISO27001, visit iso.org/iso/home.htm.
