Segment’s Stance on Security

Secure and private by default

We take the responsibility of helping you manage your customer data seriously. That’s why security and privacy are key focus areas for our organization and product development.


Internal Security

Data encryption

Your data is encrypted at rest and protected by TLS in transit. Your Segment password is hashed using bcrypt, and we manage our production secrets with AWS tools.

Rigorous product design and security testing

Our projects pass thorough security-design reviews, threat models, and regular pen tests using trusted security vendors. We also employ a public bug bounty for continuous assessment.

Time-bound access

We systematically limit internal access to critical tools and resources using time-based access.

Internal Security

Product Security

Manage access to your account

Centrally manage your policies for access with Single Sign-On (SSO) on the Business plan.

Control visibility with user access levels

Control access to your Sources and Workspaces with fine-grained permissions to manage how your users interact with your data.

System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM)

SCIM allows your Identity Provider (IdP) to manage users and group membership within the Segment application.

Password guidance

When choosing a new password, we provide visual guidance to help customers pick strong passwords that have not been exposed in security breaches on other websites.

Multi-factor authentication (MFA)

MFA provides an additional layer of security beyond your username and password. When logging into Segment, you’ll also enter a code from your mobile phone.

Bug bounty program

Since August of 2017, Segment has run a bug bounty program on the Bugcrowd platform. This program has provided tremendous value, and has improved security for both Segment and our customers. We consider our bug bounty program one of the best investments for finding and fixing existing vulnerabilities in our applications and internet-facing assets. We’ve also built productive relationships with security researchers and see some as an extension of our team. If you’ve found a vulnerability, please read the rules of our bounty brief and submit here.

Happy Hunting!
