Data Handling

At SwiftVAT, your data security has always been the topmost priority. Here are some of the ways we work to keep your data secure, and why we believe it’s often more secure than keeping files on your local computer or network.

Your data is hosted on the cloud infrastructure provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS). The AWS cloud infrastructure has been architected to be one of the most flexible and secure cloud computing environments available today. It's trusted by large enterprises like Vodafone, Nokia, NASA, and Motorola.

Protection

Amazon-AWS-Data-Security AWS’s world-class, highly secure data centers utilize state-of-the-art electronic surveillance and multi-factor access control systems. Data centers are staffed 24×7 by trained security guards, and access is authorized strictly on a least privileged basis. And multiple geographic regions and Availability Zones allow you to remain resilient in the face of most failure modes, including natural disasters or system failures.

Security Features

Data is protected by extensive network and security monitoring systems. These systems provide important security measures such as distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection and password brute-force detection. Additional security measures include:

Secure access – Customer data is transferred over a highly secure 256-bit encrypted HTTPS connection.

Built-in firewalls – In order to protect data from intruders, firewalls are deployed and managed by security specialists. Network security features also include multi-level privileges, operating system (OS) lockdowns, centralized authentication, and device changelogs.

Encrypted data storage – Customers data is encrypted automatically using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256, a secure symmetric-key encryption standard using 256-bit encryption keys. Even SwiftVAT's employees can not access sensitive data.

Periodic Backups – In these uncertain times, you need to be sure your data is not only 100% secure but is fully backed up. SwiftVAT's database is backed up every hour and all backups are retained for 35 days. Having multiple redundant backups of your data ensures SwiftVAT will never lose your data, even in the event of a natural disaster. You can feel confident about the fact that your valuable business data is in safe hands.

When you compare this to laptop theft or typical desktop software viruses, we can confidently say that your data is substantially safer with SwiftVAT than most on-premise software implementations.

Please feel free to contact us in case you have any questions.
