Atlantic Global On-Demand security starts at the data centre. Atlantic Global On-Demand is hosted in a Tier III facility that offers the highest standards of security. All areas of the data centre are monitored and recorded using CCTV, and all access points are controlled. The facility is staffed around the clock by security officers. Visitors are screened upon entry and escorted to their locations.
Atlantic Global employs industry-leading firewalls and intrusion detection and prevention systems are employed to ensure the security of your data. These systems are monitored and managed on a 24x7x365 basis.
An essential component of security, firewalls permit or restrict network traffic and safeguard systems and data from unauthorized access. Atlantic Global On-Demand employs a fully managed, robust firewall solution to ensure that the application infrastructure and your data is always protected. On an ongoing basis, regular analysis of firewall logs is performed to keep abreast of traffic patterns and identify any unusual activity.
The Intrusion Detection System (IDS) provides in-depth defense by analyzing network traffic and either blocking, replacing, or alerting when suspicious activity is detected. The system utilizes a rules-based language, which combines the benefits of signature, protocol, and anomaly-based inspection methods. Rules are used to examine packets at both the IP protocol level and at the application level and can be set to look for specific occurrences of attacks against a protocol or set to look for the conditions of an attack.
SAS 70 Type I and Type II: SAS 70 is an auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to evaluate the internal controls of a service provider.
The Type I audit evaluates the service provider’s documented internal procedures and processes to ensure that they are sufficient to achieve the service provider’s control objectives.
The Type II audit conducts a series of tests to ensure that the service provider is actually following those documented procedures and processes.
Atlantic Global On-Demand is hosted from a facility which has both SAS 70 Type I and Type II certification in conjunction with the auditor SAS 70 Solutions. These SAS 70 audits assure Atlantic Global On-Demand customers that it is living up to the commitments it made.
Documented controls covering the entire operational spectrum are in place:
Data Centre security procedures, processes and systems
Data Centre environmental (HVAC, power, etc.) procedures, processes and systems
Information and data security procedures, processes, and systems, including the network, firewalls, servers, and applications
