Introducing AppSignal Business Add-Ons

This post was updated on 20 February 2024 with information about the HIPAA Business Associate Agreement add-on.

Introducing the alternative to expensive all-encompassing Enterprise Plans: AppSignal Business Add-ons.

With our Business Add-Ons, you only need to pay for the features that matter to you, giving you the additional features your organization needs with the same freedom and flexibility all AppSignal customers enjoy.

We currently have three Business Add-Ons on offer:

In this blog post, we'll give you a whistle-stop tour of our new Business Add-Ons and explain how to add them to your organization's plan.

HIPAA Business Associate Agreement

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) ensures the security of personal health information (PHI) for individuals in the US. Our HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (BAA) add-on helps you comply with these regulations, ensuring the security and privacy of any PHI that may inadvertently end up in AppSignal.

At AppSignal, we understand that safeguarding sensitive data isn't just a legal obligation; it's a fundamental aspect of earning and maintaining your users' trust. That's why we've dedicated significant resources to ensure General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and HIPAA compliance, and ISO 27001 certification.

By choosing our HIPAA BAA add-on, you can rest assured that your organization meets HIPAA regulations.

Long-Term Log Storage

With Long-Term Log Storage, you can securely store your AppSignal logs in any S3-compatible storage service, like AWS S3 or DigitalOcean.

Long-Term Log Storage can be configured per log source, meaning you can control what logs you store and where you store them. With our straightforward setup, you can have Long-Term Log Storage up and running in minutes.

Once configured, AppSignal will begin saving logs to your S3 storage hourly, with all of your logs available in AppSignal for 30 days:

Two-Factor Authentication Enforcement

AppSignal already offers Two-Factor Authentication to all users on all plans.

However, with our Two-Factor Authentication Enforcement add-on, you can ensure that all of your organization's team members keep their AppSignal accounts secure by having 2FA as a requirement.

Once activated, organization members, depending on whether they're new or existing, have a 3-7 day grace period to enable Two-Factor Authentication. If users fail to enable Two-Factor Authentication within this timeframe, they will be locked out of the organization until it's enabled:

Getting Started With Business Add-Ons in AppSignal

As our Business Add-Ons are new, we've decided to make them available on a per-request basis. If you want to start using 2FA Enforcement or Long-Term Log Storage, you can reach out to us. We'll walk you through our pricing and help you get up and running.

You can read more about our Business Add-Ons, including detailed set-up instructions, in our documentation.

AppSignal, The Always Awesome APM

At AppSignal we strive to be awesome in everything we do. That's why we're the only APM to offer:

With our installation wizard, you can start a free trial and have AppSignal up and running in less time than it takes to drink a coffee.
