YellowDog Platform Questions

Is YellowDog Secure?

Yes. YellowDog is ISO 27001 : 2013 approved for the provision of cloud rendering and batch processing services. YellowDog is also accredited by ISE (Independent Security Experts) who audit technology companies on behalf of clients such as Disney. In ISE’s April 2019 audit of YellowDog, they were unable to compromise the platform with pen tests.

Can I remotely access servers purchased through the YellowDog Platform?

To maintain the security of YellowDog across the entire customer estate, studios cannot access the servers directly. Full render analytics are available in The YellowDog Platform.

Where is data stored?

Scene files are stored in secure data centres, operated by vetted public cloud providers, in zero-carbon data centres that are typically ISO 27001 certified.
