Email Sending with Your Safety in Mind
Mailgun by Pathwire’s Commitment to Security and Compliance
Securing your most critical systems with the utmost care for your data
Your Security Comes First
Security has been one of Mailgun by Pathwire’s highest priorities since our founding, and to this day, security informs every design decision in our product. Great email sending starts with top-notch security, and our commitment to your data privacy goes beyond simple encryption.
Our Data Centers, Certifications, and Compliances
Security is a responsibility all of us care deeply about here at Mailgun by Pathwire. Through regular training on risk prevention and identification, employees are educated on risk factors to ensure they can keep Pathwire and our customers’ data safe.

Account and Systems Access Control
Different team members have various responsibilities related to your email sending, and limited access mitigates the risk of something occurring on your account. Administrative access to Mailgun systems and services follows the principle of least privilege. Access to systems is based on job roles and responsibilities.
Alongside these user roles, Mailgun by Pathwire utilizes individually identifying usernames that are not permitted to be shared or reassigned to another person. Account onboarding and offboarding processes are well documented and followed consistently to ensure proper account access by internal and external systems.
This attention to security applies to our internal systems as well, with VPN and multi-factor authentication being used to access internal support tools and product infrastructure.
Regular patching and maintenance
Mailgun by Pathwire’s patch management process ensures that all of our systems go through a patch once at least a month. Monitoring, alerting, and routine vulnerability scanning occurs to ensure that all product infrastructure runs smoothly after all patches.
When necessary, Mailgun can patch infrastructure in an expedited manner in response to the disclosure of critical vulnerabilities.
Respecting Your Privacy
Bad actors will always find a way, but we want to do everything we can to remove them as soon as possible. If you’ve received spam from a Mailgun customer, or suspect that a customer is within violation of our Acceptable Use Policy; the best way to inform us is to report it to email@example.com.
When you report abuse, please send us the full email headers of the spam message to more quickly process your request and clean up our email stream. Our security and compliance teams will take a look as soon as possible to determine the best course of action.
