Physical and Environmental Security

RunMyProcess DigitalSuite as well as the applications and data created with it are hosted in highly secure data centers operated by Amazon Web Services (AWS). In order to maximize business continuity, platform components like application servers and databases are distributed across different AWS availability zones.

AWS provides sophisticated and extensive means to secure its customer environments from a physical and environmental point of view:

  • Access Controls: AWS data centers are housed in nondescript facilities at a number of locations around the world. They provide stringent controls over access and information for employees and contractors both at the perimeter and at building ingress points.

  • Environmental Controls: Climate control systems within AWS facilities maintain a constant operating temperature for hardware to prevent overheating and reduce the possibility of outages. Automatic fire detection and suppression equipment is deployed in all areas.

  • Power Controls: Electrical power systems are designed to be fully redundant and maintainable without impact to operations, 24/7. Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) units provide back-up power in the event of an electrical failure for critical and essential loads in the facility. Data centers use generators to provide back-up power for the entire facility.
