All data is encrypted using 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256), and each encryption key is itself encrypted with a regularly rotated set of master keys. xMatters is the only entity that possess the keys for the Data at Rest Cryptographic Controls within GCP and therefore Google does not have access to the data. Each client database is protected using schema separation.
