Compliance and Privacy Assurance
Stewards of your data
The AppDynamics platform provides data that helps you make important business decisions. As stewards of that data, we leverage security, privacy, and compliance frameworks with supporting materials that attest to our capabilities. This makes it easier for you to navigate the complex compliance landscape.
Cisco AppDynamics helps digital healthcare providers build exceptional end user experiences through high availability and application and business performance monitoring. Cisco AppDynamics is committed at all levels to the security of data entrusted to it by digital healthcare technology teams and has conducted a HIPAA self-assessment to ensure the best possible digital experience for healthcare providers and their own customers. In line with the HIPAA Security Rule, AppDynamics is not intended to process, store, transmit or otherwise access personal health information (PHI). In the event PHI is received, we are willing to sign Business Associate Agreements (BAAs) to facilitate the compliance of HIPAA for our customers. We have a comprehensive security program, as documented in our AppDynamics Trust Center.
To request a signed BAA, please contact your account manager to begin the process.
AppDynamics’ privacy controls are examined at least once a year by a qualified and independent third-party auditor as part of AppDynamics’ SOC 2 Type II audit. Audit reports are available to customers upon request, as well as potential customers under NDA. We have received a SOC 2 attestation covering security, privacy, confidentiality, and availability since 2014.
The GDPR reinforces existing data protection principles in the European Union (EU) and expands legal protections and privacy rights for EU citizens. A cross-functional effort between our privacy and product teams has led to many product enhancements designed to make it simple for our customers to use our products and SaaS service in compliance with GDPR.

International Data Transfers
AppDynamics complies with applicable law when international transfers of its customers’ personal data are made. Where a customer’s use of AppDynamics products and services requires the transfer of personal data to a location outside the European Economic Area, AppDynamics employs Standard Contractual Clauses (also commonly referred to as EU Model Clauses) as a legally recognized data transfer mechanism.
