We’re about to get a little technical. We’ve outlined the specifics of what makes our four-pillar approach to HR data security superior.
Our network is protected by redundant firewalls, best-in-class router technology, secure HTTPS transport over public networks, regular audits, and network intrusion detection and/or prevention technologies (IDS/IPS) that monitor and/or block malicious traffic and network attacks.
Our network security architecture consists of multiple security zones. DMZs are used between the internet, and internally between the different zones of trust.
At appropriate stages in the life cycle, vulnerability scans are performed for identification of noncompliance or potential vulnerabilities. At higher-level milestones , penetration tests are performed at the application level with a qualified third-party information security expert using both automated and manual testing techniques.
Access to the our database is restricted by an explicit need-to-know basis, utilizes the least privilege, and is regularly audited and monitored. In addition, employees with access privileges are required to use multiple factors of authentication.
Our globally distributed HR data security team is on call 24/7 to respond to alerts and emergencies. In case of a system alert, employees are trained on security response processes, including who to connect with and when to escalate.
Communications between HR Acuity and our users are encrypted via industry best-practices HTTPS and Transport Layer Security (TLS 1.2) over public networks.
All HR sensitive data stored with us is encrypted at rest using Transparent Data Encryption (TDE)/AD.
We have put a network redundancies in place to eliminate single points of failure. Client data is actively replicated across primary and secondary DR systems and facilities.
