Product Security


Single Sign-on (SSO) allows you to authenticate users in your own systems without requiring them to enter additional login credentials on (SSO).


All web and gRPC traffic sent to or from Kolide is encrypted TLS/SSL 256 bit encryption.

Our API and application endpoints are TLS/SSL only and score an “A” rating on Qualys SSL Labs‘ tests. This means we only use strong cipher suites and have features such as HSTS and Perfect Forward Secrecy fully enabled.

Password & Credential Storage

Kolide enforces advanced password complexity standards by checking for password entropy and disallowing passwords that are commonly used, use predictable substitutions, or match previously leaked credentials.

Kolide stores user passwords and credentials using a password based key derivation function.

Bug Bounty Program

Kolide offers a bug bounty program facilitated by HackerOne, which gives security researchers a platform for responsibly reporting security vulnerabilities.

PCI Compliance

All credit card payments made to Kolide go through our partner, Stripe. Details about their security setup and PCI compliance can be found on Stripe’s security page.
