We are committed to providing an environment that is safe, secure, and available to all of our customers.
Our datacenters are located in some of the most respected datacenter facility providers in the world. We leverage all of the capabilities of these providers including physical security and environmental controls to secure our infrastructure from physical threat or impact. Each site is staffed 24/7/365 with on-site physical security to protect against unauthorized entry. Security controls provided by our datacenter facilities includes but is not limited to:
- 24/7 Physical security guard services
- Physical entry restrictions to the property and the facility
- Physical entry restrictions to our co-located datacenter within the facility
- Full CCTV coverage externally and internally for the facility
- Biometric readers with two-factor authentication
- Facilities are unmarked as to not draw attention from the outside
- Battery and generator backup
- Generator fuel carrier redundancy
- Secure loading zones for delivery of equipment
Applivery’s infrastructure is secured through a defense-in-depth layered approach enabled by our Infrastructure providers (DigitalOcean and AWS). Access to the management network infrastructure is provided through multi-factor authentication points which restrict network-level access to infrastructure based on job function utilizing the principle of least privilege. All access to the ingress points are closely monitored, and are subject to stringent change control mechanisms.
Systems are protected through key-based authentication and access is limited by Role-Based Access Control (RBAC). RBAC ensures that only the users who require access to a system are able to login. We consider any system which houses customer data that we collect, or systems which house the data customers store with us to be of the highest sensitivity. As such, access to these systems is extremely limited and closely monitored.
Systems controlling the management network at Applivery log to our centralized logging environment to allow for performance and security monitoring. Our logging includes system actions as well as the logins and commands issued by our system administrators.
Applivery’s Security team utilizes monitoring and analytics capabilities to identify potentially malicious activity within our infrastructure. User and system behaviors are monitored for suspicious activity, and investigations are performed following our incident reporting and response procedures.
Snapshot and Backup Security
Snapshots and Backups are stored on an internal non-publicly visible network on NAS/SAN servers that are regionally separated from the main infrastructure.
Our Infrastructure providers (DigitalOcean and Amazon Web Services) are certified in several international standard.
DigitalOcean is certified in the international standard ISO/IEC 27001:2013. By achieving compliance with this globally recognized information security controls framework, audited by a third-party, DigitalOcean has demonstrated a commitment to protecting sensitive customer and company information. That commitment doesn’t end with a compliance framework, but is necessary baseline for security. Our ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certificate can be viewed here.
