Everyone loves the easy setup and accessibility of a Web Based Freight Broker Software Application, but a lot of people have concerns with the security of their data when its managed by a third party provider. To answer some of those questions and concerns, here are some details one how Efreightsolutions makes sure you data is secure and available when you need it.
Protecting Your Data
All customer data is stored in a protected database server. The server is protected by a fully managed firewall that is monitored 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Backups of the database are created every night. The backups are encrypted using industry standard cipher technologies. The backups are then stored in multiple secured geographically disperse facilities.
Stability and Reliability
In plain English (rather than tech talk) we have a very strong, regularly tested procedure in place to provide both continued service and reliable data protection. In order for our data center to have a problem we would need a disaster larger then hurricane Katrina directly at the facility.
EFreightSolutions has redundant servers with automatic failover on the Database, Application Servers, and Support Servers. Our hardware infrastructure has no single point of failure out to the public internet. Our infrastructure includes cutting edge load balancers, firewalls and servers. These tools make sure that our network is constantly running safely and securely.
Our servers are located in the Azure Cloud inside Tier 1 datacenter in the North Central US. We also have 24/7 monitoring of key services for each server. This ensures that that we know of any issues as they arise and that the servers are able to automatically disable or restart failing applications.
All our servers run the latest version of the Windows Server and our database resides on the latest version of Microsoft SQL Server. We have built and run our application on .NET 4.6 allowing us to leverage the most cutting edge technologies available.
Backups are done nightly and are sent to geographically disperse encrypted locations. We backup the database, application files and servers. This makes sure we always have data safe and secure.
