Is my data safe in Zanflow?

We take data security seriously here since people use Zanflow every day to automate and transform potentially sensitive data.

Our servers are hosted by GCP (in the US) and we utilize their best practices for cloud and data security. We always pull in data on demand when processing flows and while doing so, immediately flush any older cached data from our system. Any data that is cached on the servers—to make building flows more streamlined—is cleared after a maximum of two weeks.
