Airtame Cloud sends information over the internet. Therefore, extra security measures are taken to ensure no information is ever at risk even though passwords and web URLs are not sent to the cloud.
The Airtame cloud solution is hosted on Amazon Web Services for a secure, reliable and scalable solution. Airtame uses the AWS datacenter in Germany. User account information and passwords are stored on the server and are bcrypt-hashed for maximum security.
All communication between a user's device, Cloud portal, and Airtame devices are SSL encrypted (HTTPS). Communication between the Airtame device and Cloud Portal uses standard WebSocket communication established by the device.
The information sent about an Airtame device is restricted to non-sensitive information like basic device settings, which means that no passwords are ever sent over the internet.
☝️Under no circumstances does the Airtame solution ever send a stream over the internet.
