The cloud has revolutionized the way we all do business.
Yet many companies still stake the reliability and functionality of their communications on closets full of wires and cables. For over a decade, RingCentral has invested in building the most advanced cloud communications platform in the market, so you can confidently move your communications to the cloud.
Core commitment to reliability
Our cloud-based technology was built from the ground up to deliver carrier-grade reliability for your business communications. Our distributed, redundant network routes calls dynamically around broken links, while redundant data centers and production environments ensure continuity during outages. We relentlessly focus on delivering quality of service with smart call routing and 24/7/365 monitoring of quality metrics across all modes of communications. We stand by our commitment to reliability with a financially backed 99.999% service-level agreement for qualified customers.*
Our enterprise-grade security is architected to protect your data and your communications. Communications are encrypted between all endpoints no matter what device you are using. Our redundant network and infrastructure are protected with multiple layers of physical and logical security, and our data centers are audited regularly to ensure compliance with SSAE 16, PCI-DSS level 3, and ISO 27001 standards. Analytics-based, automated fraud detection and mitigation provide you with the peace of mind you need for your business.
Quality of service
Our global private backbone allows for single reliable connectivity independent of a local broadband provider. With our Direct Connect you receive OTT internet access through a variety of vendors of your choice. Throughout the communications platform we architected, we provide end-to-end quality of service, deploying state-of-the-art technology like Opus and HD audio and video. Our Professional Services team provides a variety of services to plan, design, integrate, and transition your communications infrastructure. We also offer dedicated on-site deployment to ensure a no-downtime, worry-free transition to the RingCentral system.
Superior user experience
Innovative, enterprise-grade communications solutions should not be complex to implement. We built our applications with the user experience in mind at every step. Whether you are an administrator configuring the system or adding a line, or a business user changing your message settings, our apps are designed with the user in mind. The results? Empowered customers through an intuitive, easy to navigate, and obsessively consistent multi-device experience.
Integrations and APIs
We built RingCentral as an open platform with easy-to-use APIs and SDKs so you can seamlessly integrate business communications into your key business processes. Our pre-packaged integrations with CRM, Office, and other business applications allow you to automate workflows, drive efficiency, and gain deep insight from communications data. Our enterprise-grade, open platform allows you to innovate and tailor your communications systems to your unique environment.
Our solution is easy to implement, and many customers go live in no time. Our Single Point of Contact organization provides you with a direct resource to support you every step of the way. If you are planning a more complex implementation, our team can do the work for you.
Reliability from the ground up
Since day one we’ve focused on delivering enterprise-grade reliability and quality of service. We invest in our own technology and network, and our team of professionals proactively monitors and optimizes our platform 24/7/365.
A culture of innovation
Rather than rely on others’ technology, RingCentral made a strategic decision early on to build our own technology and our own network. This commitment allows us to provide our customers with carrier-grade reliability and outstanding QoS at all times.
Keeping your company open for business
Natural disasters, power outages, and malicious network attacks can cause communications downtime that frustrates your customers and threatens your bottom line. Our distributed network is fully redundant in every location we serve, providing you with a truly global infrastructure that ensures 24/7 business continuity for your company.
RingCentral continually monitors the end-to-end performance of our network to ensure KPIs such as quality metrics, completion rates, and availability remain at peak levels. Globally, we have alarms in place that warn of widespread, significant drops in endpoint performance.
Real-time system information
Our self-service portal allows users to log in 24/7 to check the overall health of the RingCentral system. You can confirm in real time whether your communications services are up and running and monitor the resolution status of system-wide problems.
The RingCentral platform has been architected to support failover conditions in case of emergency. Using SIP trunking, RingCentral provides real-time disaster recovery by switching active services from one data center to another. Thanks to redundant internet connections, our fax, voice, voicemail, and conferencing services can all continue to operate without interruption.
The RingCentral platform utilizes multiple layers of security to protect your data and communications while also guarding against fraud and service abuse.
Seven layers of security
RingCentral gives you added peace of mind by instituting robust security measures at every level of our architecture and processes. These include the physical, infrastructure, host, data, application, and business processes, as well as the enterprise level of your organization.
To prevent interception of your communications, RingCentral provides Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol (SRTP) encryption between all endpoints.
RingCentral offers the following infrastructure safeguards:
- Network and applications: firewalls and session border controllers
- Administrative functions: multiple authentication levels
- Technology: intrusion-detection systems and fraud analytics
- Operational functions: monitoring, system hardening, and vulnerability scans
- Payment processing: full PCI DSS 3.1 compliance
Physical and environmental security
The RingCentral platform is deployed across SSAE 16 and ISO 27001-audited data centers, protected by the most robust electronic prevention systems, on-site engineering specialists, and security guards. The geographic diversity of our locations also minimizes the risk of data loss and service interruption due to catastrophe.
Proactive fraud mitigation
RingCentral prevents toll fraud through access control, detection controls, and usage throttling, and gives you granular control over who gets to make international calls and to where. Plus our global security department actively monitors your account to detect irregular calling patterns and prevent fraudulent charges.
FINRA security controls
FINRA’s mission is to protect investors by making sure the United States securities industry operates fairly and honestly. RingCentral has received compliance in security controls for cloud providers established by FINRA to protect all data and information of our customers who are using RingCentral Office and the RingCentral app (previously known as Glip).
We regularly undergo independent verification of our security controls to protect our customers’ data and communications and to meet regulatory and compliance needs.
SOC 2 Type 2 (SOC 2+)
The SOC 2 report validates the effectiveness of our operating controls as a service organization against the criteria set forth by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Trust Services Principles. RingCentral annually undergoes a third-party audit to certify our services against this standard. A copy of the most recent report is available upon request from your Account Manager or Sales Representative.
Unlike a SOC 2 report, a SOC 3 report can be freely distributed to the public for general use. RingCentral has undergone a third-party audit to certify our services against this standard.
The government does not offer a HIPAA certification for business entities. In order to meet the HIPAA security requirements as they apply to our service and operations, RingCentral has implemented the HIPAA security safeguards. We annually undergo a third-party SOC 2+ audit, which includes an assessment of controls mapped to the HIPAA Security Rule requirements, that demonstrates the implementation of the security safeguards and requirements outlined in the HIPAA Security Rule. A copy of the most recent report is available upon request from your Account Manager or Sales Representative.
RingCentral Office and the RingCentral app have earned Certified status for information security by HITRUST. HITRUST CSF Certified status indicates that these RingCentral apps have met industry-defined security requirements and are appropriately managing risk. RingCentral joins an elite group of global organizations that have earned this certification. By including federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the HITRUST CSF helps organizations address cyber security challenges through a comprehensive framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls. HITRUST CSF Certification sets the highest standard for compliance of security requirements and has become the benchmark which organizations apply to safeguard ePHI data.
Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready (McAfee Enterprise-Ready)
RingCentral Office has earned the Skyhigh’s CloudTrust rating of Enterprise-Ready, the highest rating possible from Skyhigh. Skyhigh provides this status to cloud services that fully satisfy the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices, and legal protection.
