unmess Security Practices

unmess Security Practices

unmess ensures data security through the following measures:

Network Segmentation:

To enhance security, unmess maintains its web servers and databases on separate network segments. This segregation restricts lateral movement within the infrastructure, further safeguarding client data.

Data Retention:

unmess respects the right to data erasure. Client data is securely deleted upon request or automatically following the termination of subscription services. Retention periods may be subject to applicable legal or regulatory requirements.

Encryption Protocols:

unmess prioritises data security by utilising industry-standard encryption protocols such as TLS. These protocols provide robust safeguards against unauthorisd access and data breaches.

Cloud & Managed Infrastructure:

unmess leverages Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud infrastructure. Benefitting from years of collective security expertise and continuous security enhancements, AWS provides a highly secure and reliable platform for unmesss operations.

Access Control:

Stringent access controls are implemented to limit data access to authorised unmess personnel only. This mitigates the risk of unauthorised access and data mishandling.

Real-time Surveillance:

unmess deploys continuous system monitoring, generating immediate alerts for any suspicious activity. This proactive approach enables prompt response to potential security threats, minimising potential damage.

Comprehensive Logging:

Detailed logs of all API calls are maintained, facilitating tracing and auditing of system activity. These logs serve as a valuable resource for security analysis and investigation, enhancing forensic capabilities and incident response.

Launch and SOC II Compliance:

unmess is committed to data security and operational excellence. We are actively pursuing Service Organisation Control 2 (SOC 2) compliance, targeted for completion in Q3 2024. Achieving SOC 2 certification will further demonstrate our commitment to robust security controls and data confidentiality.
