Datacentre security standards
Managed by a third party
Penetration testing frequency
At least every 6 months
Penetration testing approach
Protecting data at rest
Other data at rest protection approach
Data is encrypted by OpenSSL using AES-256
encryption. All encrypted data is signed using a message authentication code (MAC) so that the underlying value can not be modified once encrypted.

The encryption key is unique for each instance and can be
changed by the administrator if required.
Data sanitisation process
Equipment disposal approach
In-house destruction process

Data importing and exporting

Data export approach
Data is self hosted either in a cloud environment or on-premise and so subject to their existing export approaches.
Data export formats
Other data export formats
Data is self hosted and so subject to existing approaches.
Data import formats
Other data import formats
Data is self hosted and so subject to existing approaches.

Data-in-transit protection

Data protection between buyer and supplier networks
TLS (version 1.2 or above)
Data protection within supplier network
TLS (version 1.2 or above)

Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
Availability is entirely under the control of the entity administrating the appliance and therefore subject to their own SLA.
Approach to resilience
Our service is self-hosted, be that in a hosted environment or on-premise.
Outage reporting

Identity and authentication

User authentication needed
User authentication
  • 2-factor authentication
  • Public key authentication (including by TLS client certificate)
  • Identity federation with existing provider (for example Google Apps)
  • Username or password
Access restrictions in management interfaces and support channels
Management interfaces are not externally available. Remote support access is off by default (and reboot), initiated by the appliance administrator only and requires an administrator supplied random key (valid for 30 seconds, reset at reboot) to connect.
Access restriction testing frequency
At least once a year
Management access authentication
  • 2-factor authentication
  • Public key authentication (including by TLS client certificate)
  • Username or password

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
Regular updates are communicated via the internal update mechanism however they are not mandated; the individual requirements of the hosting entity or business are adhered to.
Version number records are kept through the entire development line to ensure threat management is available and threat mitigation is undertaken in a timely fashion.
Change monitoring is undertaken and versioning is effective in mitigating emerging threats.
Vulnerability management type
Vulnerability management approach
Software components included are monitored for live threat emergence; these are mitigated often prior to official threat reduction.
Software patches are released according to severity. The most severe are typically fix-released within hours.
Threat emergence via CVE is the main source reviewed.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
The installation provides all detailed logging information and does not report off-site. The hosting provider or end business control the access and therefore, the information, as to incident prevention. Direct access to assistance is provided for additional mitigation.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
Users or end user business controllers are able to report directly to the board and development team via our support channel. This is usually via email however telephone support is available.
All incidents are recorded in our CMS for future reference and evidence.
