    • First, register the accepted domains here.

6. Audit Logs

Audit logs provide numerous benefits including better transparency, record integrity and accuracy, and security of sensitive or vital information. A weekly review of audit log reports in LeadSquared will keep you on top of any activity in your account.

  • Audit Log Reports
    List of reports that help you track changes made to users, leads, automations, etc.
  • Request History
    Monitor all bulk requests such as import, export and delete, and also the history of support access requests.

 

7. API Security

LeadSquared APIs support Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption. TLS is a standard that keeps an internet connection private and checks that the data sent between two systems (a server and a server, or a server and a client) is encrypted and unmodified. While using our APIs, we recommend following these best practices –
  • Keep your API keys secret
    We use access keys and secret keys (unique for each user) for authentication. These keys give you access to LeadSquared functionality and data, so they should always be kept secret.
  • IP Whitelisting
    With IP whitelisting, only requests made from specified IPs will be accepted. Whitelist the IPs you’ll be making API calls from. To learn more, see Restrict User Access to LeadSquared using IP Whitelisting.
  • Restricting API access through permission templates
    For users who don’t need access to API, we recommend disabling API access through permission templates. To learn more, see How to Create a Permission Template.
  • Reviewing API Logs
    View your API logs to check for unauthorized access. For details, see API Logs.

 

8. Data Protection and Privacy

These features were created with GDPR in mind. They enable you to provide transparency to your leads in relation to their data and privacy.
