Our servers are with Amazons AWS and are hosted within the US. AWS infrastructure is housed in Amazon-controlled data centers.

AWS has in the past successfully completed multiple SAS70 Type II audits, and now publishes a Service Organization Controls 1 (SOC 1) report, published under both the SSAE 16 and the ISAE 3402 professional standards. In addition, AWS has achieved ISO 27001 certification, and has been successfully validated as a Level 1 service provider under the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). In the realm of public sector certifications, AWS has received authorization from the U.S. General Services Administration to operate at the FISMA Moderate level, and is also the platform for applications with Authorities to Operate (ATOs) under the Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Program (DIACAP). We will continue to obtain the appropriate security certifications and conduct audits to demonstrate the security of our infrastructure and services.

In January 2012 we introduced a feature called "Lockdown" that allows you to apply very powerful security to all object within TeamworkPM.
You can choose exactly who should see any item. This is a feature that no other project management system comes close to matching. The interface is really intuitive.
SSL encrypts the data sent from your browser to our server. When SSL is not used, a person on the same network as you could potentially "listen" to the data being sent between your browser and the Teamwork servers.
Note: SSL is only available on the teamworkpm.net domain (for example, https://mysite.teamworkpm.net) If you use a custom domain with Teamwork, SSL is not available.
