We take the security and privacy of your communication and content on Quip extremely seriously.
In terms of security:
Our production team comes from Facebook and Google, and they have extensive experience running highly reliable, scalable web sites. There is a full-time engineer on call for site outages and problems 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and we have extensive monitoring for site reliability from Pingdom and Cloudfront monitoring services.
We use the standard best practices for cloud services, including requiring HTTPS connections to our servers for security, firewalls protecting our database servers, off-site backups for user data, and the security provided by our hosting provider, Amazon Web Services (AWS).
