Security Throughout the Data Lifecycle

Account Access

We offer single sign-on (SSO), two factor authentication (2FA) and multi-factor authentication (MFA) for additional security layers.

In Transit

All data from operator devices to Kittyhawk servers is encrypted in transit using TLS 1.2.

Live Streams

Live audio and video streams are encrypted in compliance with the ISO 27001 standards.

UTM Traffic & Remote ID

Live aircraft telemetry and identification are encrypted in transit using TLS 1.2.

API Integrations

Airspace, mission planning, fleet management, and reporting APIs are encrypted using TLS 1.2.



All data files are stored and backed up in encrypted domestic AWS servers.


Network Monitoring

Kittyhawk uses an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) that provides real-time network traffic and infrastructure event monitoring and flagging.

Kittyhawk Keeps Data Local


When operators fly using Kittyhawk mobile apps, sensitive flight data including location, authorizations, photos and videos are not transferred to aircraft OEM data repositories.

We do this through default enablement of Local Data Mode. Data stays in the Kittyhawk cloud using domestic AWS data storage.
