Security & Reliability

Security and Reliability Safeguards

At Awfatech we know that our customers rely on us as an important part of their business processes and record keeping. We take our responsibilities to our customers seriously, and the security and reliability of the software, systems and data that make up the Awfatech application are our top priority.
SecuritySSL
All information travelling between your browser and Awfatech is protected from eavesdroppers with 256-bit SSL encryption. The lock icon in your browser lets you verify that you aren't talking to a phishing site impersonating Awfatech and that your data is secure in transit.Firewalls
The Awfatech application - including your data - rests securely behind Cisco-powered firewalls.
Vulnerability scanning
Awfatech's servers are scanned for vulnerabilities regularly by AlertLogic, our managed security provider. These scans test our servers both from the Internet and from inside our network, and any newly-identified problems are addressed as quickly as possible.

Intrusion detection
All of the traffic entering and leaving Awfatech's network is monitored by an Intrusion Detection System (IDS). Any unusual behaviour is analyzed by AlertLogic's CISSP-certified security experts, and responses are coordinated between them, Rackspace, and our system administration team.

Strong encryption
Particularly sensitive information - credit card numbers, bank account information, and your payment gateway account details - are encrypted in our database using AES.

Physical security
The Awfatech servers are located in AIMS Kuala Lumpur state-of-the-art datacentres, which provide biometric access controls, constant surveillance, redundant power feeds and generators, robust fire suppression, and carefully monitored climate control to protect the servers that store your data and manage your billing.

Reliability
Redundant servers and datacentres
The Awfatech infrastructure uses redundant storage and servers to keep the application and your data available in the case of hardware failure - and another set of servers and storage in a geographically separate datacentre in case our primary datacentre is made unavailable by a disaster or other disruption.

Managed hosting
Awfatech has chosen Exabytes and Netonboard for server cloud infrastructure provider in providing the hardware, service, security and expertise you expect.

Backups
The data in your Awfatech account is replicated across multiple database servers in two geographic locations to prevent a single failure from causing data loss. Additionally, that data is backed up nightly to tape and stored in a secure offsite location to ensure that, even in the event of a catastrophe like a tornado or flood, your information will be safe and your records can be quickly restored.
