Service interface Yes
Description of service interface Quinyx offers a secure and highly redundant and flexible API through a SOAP-based Web Service interface. The Web Service security is maintained using both a customer specific API key and IP range locks per customer. All communication is encrypted over SSL. The customer may decide the frequency of the push/pull of data, and whether or not data is a full refresh or deltas only and have their internal resources or a Quinyx partner, build the interface accordingly.
Accessibility standards None or don’t know
Description of accessibility Quinyx is accessible from any web-connected device. There are various user interfaces that may be used including mobile apps and an HTML 5 interface that responds dynamically to the resolution and size of screen the user has logged in from. Today, this HTML 5 view is used primarily for the management of employees and existing schedules but is currently being developed further to enable full Quinyx functionality.
Accessibility testing None
What users can and can't do using the API Quinyx is generally configured by our application experts, but may be managed (data pushed/pulled) via APIs. Quinyx can share API documents with customers to outline all possibiltes. System configuration must be done via the software GUI.

Operational security
Configuration and change management standard Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach Quinyx uses standardised configuration templates for all infrastructure where changes are version controlled and reviewed before being pushed to the environments. All authentication is centralised and role-based.

By using the same source of truth for security configuration across all environments, called the "global state," we ensure synced configuration and hardening across environments. A resource can't (impossible to serve traffic) be a part of production if it does not pass the "global state."
Vulnerability management type Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach We trigger alarms from our central logging systems to channels such as SMS, email and Slack notifications. The process for responding to potential alerts is to:
- Identify/perform risk assessment
- Reproduce
- Patch
- Test
- Release
We subscribe to CVE and Debian Security feeds. Suspected bugs are reported to support. Once verified, the bug's severity is graded according to our prioritization guidelines and logged in our issue tracker. After it has been logged, the bug is analyzed by an Incident Manager to determine in which release it should be fixed. This information is then relayed to the customer.
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach The Quinyx Endpoints and DNS are protected by AWS Shield.
AWS Shield Standard provides always-on network flow monitoring which inspects incoming traffic to AWS and uses a combination of traffic signatures, anomaly algorithms and other analysis techniques to detect malicious traffic in real-time.
Always-on detection and inline mitigation minimize application downtime and there is no need to engage AWS Support to receive DDoS protection. Incidents are reported to Customer Support who will contact any customer representative potentially affected by the incident.
Incident management type Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach Suspected bugs are reported to our support. If possible, they are verified directly by the first-line support representative or escalated to a second-line support representative. Once verified, the bug's severity is graded according to our prioritization guidelines and logged in our issue tracking tool. After it has been logged, the bug is analyzed by an Incident Manager to determine in which release it should be fixed. This information is then relayed to the customer. Once the bug fix has been released the customer may be notified, depending on what was decided when it was first reported- typically depending on severity.
