Cloud Storage Security

We know how critical your data is to you and that you rely on Wasabi as part of your storage infrastructure. The safety and security of the Wasabi hot cloud storage service and the protection of your data is our primary concern.

Physical Security


Wasabi uses only premier tier 4 datacenter facilities for co-locating our equipment. Each site is staffed 24/7/365 with onsite security and to protect against unauthorized entry. Each site has security cameras that monitor both the facility premises as well as each area of the datacenter internally. There are biometric readers for access as well as at least two factor authentication to gain access to the building. Each facility is unmarked so as not to draw any additional attention from the outside and adheres to strict local and federal government standards.

Storage Data Security


Wasabi is secure by default and all data stored in the Wasabi cloud is always encrypted at rest (even if the requesting party doesn’t specify encryption).   Wasabi follows industry-best security models and security design practices. Examples of Wasabi security features include:

  • HTTPS is supported for the secure upload/download of data

  • Buckets are only accessible to the bucket and object creators

  • Wasabi supports user authentication to control access to data (including support for the AWS IAM model)

  • Access control mechanisms such as bucket policies and Access Control Lists (ACLs) can be used to selectively grant permissions to users and groups of users

Credit Card Security


Wasabi hands off credit card processing to Stripe. They power online transactions for thousands of business and SaaS platforms and comply with strict PCI standards in the storage and handling of credit card information.

Communications Security


All communications with Wasabi are transmitted over SSL (HTTPS) for both access to the public website as well as the S3 storage and IAM APIs.
