We only collect what we need — nothing more.

Workplace Advisor is intentionally designed to collect only the data that it needs in order to function. The collected data improves the workplace and helps Workplace Advisor function more efficiently overall. Workplace Advisor is designed to eliminate the collection of personal or identifiable data, and all data that’s collected is securely encrypted to ensure privacy every step of the way.


Safe storage to protect you and the company.

Our layered defense strategy combines protective tools with active monitoring to keep both you and the organization you work for secure. We continually evaluate our protections and adopt industry-best practices to offer a reliable, tailored approach to privacy that includes the following:

  • Software, gateways and sensors are rigorously penetration-tested and reviewed by a well-respected third-party security partner.
  • The system has no ability to make or permit inbound connections to the customer’s network.
  • Network activity and data are continuously monitored for security events with a 24/7-staffed third-party security partner.
  • Advanced firewall and web application firewalls are strictly controlled and monitored.
  • Wireless adapters and information are secured in transit from the sensors to the gateways and are encrypted by AES128 encryption and authentication.
  • Ethernet adapters and network traffic information are secured in transit and encrypted from the gateway to the Steelcase platform with TLS 1.2, and up to 2,048-bit SHA256.
  • Gateways accept “pairing” and registration from devices during installation only, and refuse pairing and registration from devices that are not sensors.
  • Gateways are protected; no default passwords or keys are used, and no unused services are enabled.


Data display designed with your discretion in mind.

With an easy-to-understand design, Workplace Advisor’s user-friendly dashboard gives organizations meaningful insights into how their spaces are used. All unnecessary information is stripped from the dashboard, with role-based controls ensuring only the appropriate people have access to data.
