EisenVault secures your documents while in transit and while at rest on the cloud. We also have state-of-the-art mechanisms for access control, versioning, accountability and backup.
Security in Transit – SSL/TLS
- SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a server and a client—typically a web server (website) and a browser or mobile app; or a mail server and a mail client
- SSL allows sensitive information such as documents, credit card numbers, login credentials to be transmitted securely
- TLS is a successor to the SSL protocol
EisenVault uses 128-bit TLS 1.2 encryption
Banks and Government Agency websites typically use this technology for encrypting sensitive data during transmission.
Security at Rest – Data Store Encryption and Physical Security
- Server-Side Encryption – EisenVault requests the server to encrypt your content before saving it on disks in its data centers and decrypt it when you download the content. Encryption used the 128-bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard)
- This protects your data in case of physical breach of the data center
- Standard encryption used for protecting high-level government data
- Operating System Security – EisenVault servers use modern CentOS Linux as their operating system
- CentOS has a strong privilege-based security system which makes it among the most secure operating systems
- Linux is inherently better protected than Windows against viruses and hacker attacks
- Physical Security – EisenVault servers are housed in international Tier-1 cloud data centers with redundancy and physical security
- 24×7 Power backup
- Business continuity by replication of data across multiple storage locations, to mitigate risk of a natural disaster
- CCTV, Fire Alarms, Key-Card Access, Security Policy & Training for authorized personnel
