Hydrus is delivered as a cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform. This means the software is hosted centrally by Hydrus and accessed by customers via the web, eliminating the need for on-premise installation or maintenance. Our SaaS model provides a simplified deployment process with automatic updates to the latest features and security protections.
Hydrus serves as a centralized data layer and single source of truth for all of an organization’s sustainability data. The platform consolidates metrics from across business units into one hub for unified reporting and analytics. This gives companies complete visibility into their ESG performance enterprise-wide. Hydrus enables customized tracking of emissions, energy, water, waste, diversity stats, investments and other parameters relevant to the business. The data can then be leveraged to provide insights to internal and external stakeholders like investors, customers, and management.
Hydrus offers extensive connectivity options to various internal systems within your organization. Our platform supports API integrations, allowing you to seamlessly connect with a wide range of enterprise systems. Additionally, we provide a REST API that empowers clients to push and pull data into and out of the platform, enabling efficient data synchronization and ensuring that your sustainability data remains up to date and accurate.
Your data’s security and storage are top priorities for Hydrus. We employ robust encryption measures to protect data in transit and at rest. Typically, data is stored in Amazon Web Services (AWS), specifically in the US East 1: Northern Virginia region. However, we offer the flexibility to store data in other cloud providers like Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. Importantly, each customer’s data is housed in its dedicated cluster, ensuring absolute data isolation and preventing any sharing between customers.
At Hydrus, data access is tightly controlled to ensure security and privacy. We implement several key access management features, including Single Sign-On (SSO), Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), and Group permissioning. This means that access to data is logically segmented, allowing users to view only the information they are authorized to see. Our system supports various user roles, including Administrators, Managers, Auditors, Users, and more, each with distinct permissions and responsibilities. These measures guarantee that data access is restricted to authorized individuals, enhancing data security and compliance.
At Hydrus, we prioritize compliance with key regulations to ensure the utmost data security and privacy for our clients. We are proud to be SOC 2 compliant, a certification that attests to our stringent data protection practices. Moreover, we provide robust support for GDPR and CCPA compliance, partnering with our clients to meet these regulatory requirements effectively. Your organization can trust Hydrus to align with these critical compliance standards, safeguarding your data and ensuring peace of mind.
