Security of your data is our top priority
DATA SECURITY

100 years back, people were not ready to keep their money in Banks because they thought that it is always safe to keep our money with ourselves. However, times have change and now people prefer to keeping their money in Bank. In-fact, keeping money and valuables in bank is safer than keeping it with us as they have better security.

Similarly your data is safer on cloud because hosting companies have lot of safety and security in place to protect your data. They have hardware and software firewalls, backed by n-tier architecture and isolation techniques. They also have robust backup systems.

We have taken a number of measures to ensure the safety and security of your data.

The data centers are ISO 27001 and ISO 27017 certified and they are monitored 24x7 for both network and on-site security.
  4. Servers are protected using a multi-layer security architecture which includes network security devices, firewalls and gateway appliances.
  5. The data is stored on MS-SQL Server, a commercial RDBMS system, which is highly dependable when compared to free database solutions such as MY-SQL.
  6. The data is accessed using isolation techniques through n-tier architecture, so the data layer cannot be directly accessed by the user layer.
  7. The data servers are regularly backed-up using automated agent-based backup system. This system automatically creates hourly, daily and weekly backups.
  8. The server is configured to automatically send daily backups to a backup server located in Singapore. The data and the backups are analyzed daily by an automated system.
  9. The backup systems in India are audited and certified by Janitor Data, an independent company with expertise in data warehousing, data recovery and data insurance.
