Data Security

Data security is a priority at Vizi. Vizi's data is stored in the cloud, designed to ensure high performance and resilience. We partner with Amazon Web Services (AWS) - the world's leading cloud provider, to globally offer a secure, high-performance, load-balanced architecture.

In the event of a security breach (a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data. This includes breaches that are the result of both accidental and deliberate causes) Vizi will notify all clients immediately of any such breach and work with the client and AWS to resolve the breach as quickly as possible.

Vizi uses end-to-end HTTPS and IP restrictions to ensure your data is always encrypted and only accessible to authorised users.


The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR) specifies new requirements for protecting personal data that are being enforced from May 2018 (for more info, take a look at this page).

Because we are a new company, our processes and behaviours have been vigorously designed with these regulations in mind. Data security is central to the way in which Vizi has been designed and the processes we adhere to when handling your data. Please see our section 2 of our Privacy policy for information on how Vizi complies with the GDPR.
