Web Standards, Compliance and Compatibility

We adhere to industry standards so you can maximize the usability and reliability of your Caspio apps.

Here are some of the ways Caspio follows standards:

  • All Caspio apps are rendered in XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
  • Caspio uses CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) for app styling. Caspio templates stick to the common denominator in CSS supported by a wide array of browsers. However, Caspio customers are free to add their own CSS.
  • Caspio apps are Section 508 compliant. This means that Caspio-powered apps are compatible with the devices visually-impaired people use to access the web.
  • The Caspio application programming interface (API) is based on web services standards and protocols. The API uses SOAP, a standard XML protocol for application integration, with support for both versions in common use: SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2. The API includes alternative invocations for remote call procedures and document-oriented methods.
  • Caspio charts use HTML5 for cutting-edge interactivity on both PCs and mobile devices like the iPhone.
  • Caspio apps can be extended through JavaScript, a widely-used client scripting language, and do not depend on any proprietary programming techniques. For example, standard JavaScript techniques can be used to create map mashups with other web applications such as Google Maps.
  • Integrated payment processing is PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant when configured by Caspio professional services. This means you can assure customers you take credit card security on the Internet seriously.
  • The data center utilized by Caspio is SAS-70 Type II certified, recognizing the processes and controls that are in place to protect your data and applications.
  • Caspio's administrative console is compatible with all major browsers on all major platforms including Windows, Mac and Linux.
  • Caspio's database is UTF-8 compliant, meaning it can support Unicode encoded data for multiple languages while maintaining compatibility with the older ASCII standard for English-language applications.
  • Caspio is TRUSTe and US-EU Safe Harbor certified, reflecting our commitment to respecting the privacy of our customers.

Caspio provides tools that respect web standards, combined with the highest standards for application integration, integrity, security and privacy. By building on the Caspio platform, you can deliver the same high standards in your own web database applications.
