As headlines around the world turn to Equifax, data security and the dangers that negligence in the field can incur for businesses or private users, it is more important than ever for you and your customers to be sure that their information is safe.
The privacy of your customers’ information is rightly one of your top concerns, and we reflect that in our all-out approach to security. Our systems can survive everything from the most modern spyware and viral threats, to cyber attacks and power cuts. What's more, all of our data centres are UK-based and compliant with ISO 27001, the industry standard for data security.
This is the top level international industry standard in information security management systems. Organisations that meet ISO 27001 are said to have the security techniques, technology and abilities to receive, store and transmit remote data securely within a data centre. What it means for customers is that at every point of their information’s journey, they can be sure that it is being treated with the utmost diligence.
For example, say that your customer is entering valuable financial information that could cost them a lot of money if stolen by a hacker. It is worth noting that, on GoCloud, no details of the document or any of the information on it are ever transmitted in context. Instead, GoCloud transmits each individual input and output to and from our data centre, meaning that no one except the one security-cleared user can ever see the full document.
When the data is transmitted, it is encrypted to 256-bit level. The same level that government bodies and military organisations use to transmit the most confidential information.
Our UK data centres are manned by professional security personnel 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Backup generators stand ready to provide power in the event of a mains-power blackout, and multiple high capacity data connections means that it is very unlikely that even the most complete blackout could compromise our system.
Additionally, there are plans in place to allow for almost every eventuality. Put simply, we keep data safe and sound, no matter what the situation.
Nearly two-thirds of confirmed data breaches involve weak or stolen passwords. GoCloud prevents such things happening to any of your customers by employing high level two-factor identification to authorised users.
Customers also benefit from Symantec™ Endpoint Protection and an isolated desktop environment, where security is focused on them.
At the end of the day, the best way for everyone involved to stay safe is to work together dynamically and intelligently, with constant communication. This is the ideal that we are working towards with the help of our partners and their customers.
