Operational security
Configuration and change management standard Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Configuration and change management approach E-Share is a complete solution that allows the administrator of the technology to customise the correct user profiles that adhere to the organisation security and compliance standards. Once these are set, employees automatically adhere by default.
Vulnerability management type Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach We are constantly monitoring the environment to ensure that there are no threats to the integrity of our service. We do not hold any data. We have a version control calendar which is underpinned by a secure Q A testing procedure before any software is released live. Where necessary we are able to deploy patches once a problem has been reported.
Protective monitoring type Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach E-Share has a monitoring strategy that ensures that networks, systems and services are monitored for unusual behaviour. By monitoring the environment regularly we are able to respond to potential compromise very quickly. Customers will have access to a full forensic auditing dashboard and if a threat is discovered on a particular device, the device can be isolated, re-mediated or removed from the system without any impact to other users.
Incident management type Conforms to a recognised standard, for example, CSA CCM v3.0 or ISO/IEC 27035:2011 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
