The LiveSafe Platform is housed in a virtual private cloud (VPC) within the AWS’s U.S. infrastructure. Web and database resources are replicated across multiple availability zones and multiple regions for redundancy.
Real-Time Location Service
In standby mode, the LiveSafe Platform updates location at least every 50 meters based on speed and movement of the employee. In active mode, which is when an emergency option has been invoked or when the SafeWalk feature is in use, location is updated every 10-15 seconds. LiveSafe serves as a steward of employee privacy, and the employee’s location information is only passed through when the employee has initiated an emergency action, and even then the employee is alerted before location sharing begins.
Low Battery Consumption
The value that the LiveSafe Solution can deliver goes up enormously when accurate location is maintained. The ability for employees to get help when an emergency option is invoked; the ability for friends to virtually accompany one another safely to their destinations; the ability to benefit from Geofenced Broadcast Messages — all of these scenarios require maintaining accurate location, and this is tied to battery consumption.
LiveSafe innovates to attain the right balance between the need to preserve battery life with the need to maintain accurate location for users, while safeguarding their privacy. That balance is achieved via architectural approaches as well as the discipline to embrace best practices and drive new innovation. This two-pronged approach ensures that the LiveSafe Mobile App does everything possible to “sip” battery power, while also unlocking the true value of the platform for both companies and for their constituencies.

Access & Data Security
All data is encrypted in transit using industry standard HTTPS/TLS. Core organization system data is encrypted at rest. To protect personal data, high-speed row level encryption of personal information — including first and last names, email addresses, and phone numbers — is employed. Data at rest is encrypted (AES-256) at the database level as well as at row level using a customer specific key that is managed by Amazon KMS.
All dashboard actions are automatically logged and time stamped to the admin that performed the action. Audits are stored separately from regular data and are not directly accessible by clients.
Command and Communications Dashboard users can be assigned or restricted access to specific administrator functions and hierarchical views.
A user will be linked to their organization’s login page to allow for Single Sign-On to verify their access to the organization through a third-party federated identity tool (SAML 2.0 assertions).
Verified Email Domain
The user must add a verified email from a specific organization owned domain (for example, firstname.lastname@example.org) if this option is selected.
A 4-digit numeric pin, determined by the organization, must be entered to gain access if this option is selected.
SCIM Integration & Automated User Management
Via SCIM integration and Automated User Management, share user data from internal systems to keep LiveSafe user data in sync.
