Data Storage, Backup and Recovery
SAI Global has implemented secured onsite and offsite backups to ensure a seamless experience for your critical risk management systems.
- Customer data is stored on an enterprise storage array providing maximum performance, protection and data integrity, and in APAC & Americas, storage encryption.
- Offsite disaster recovery replication in real-time, with RPO of one hour and RTO of four hours.
- Daily data backups are replicated over our private network to the DR site under SAI Global control at all times.
- We keep 28 days of full database back-ups onsite, and 12 months offsite.
SAI Global segments sensitive production servers and data behind a state of the art firewall.
- SAI Global uses restrictive firewall policies for perimeter defense and a 3 tiered architecture which provides multiple segregated security zones for maximum data protection, from external, or internal attacks.
- We monitor production systems and network components, including internal system performance metrics, database health.
- We commission trusted third parties to undertake regular external network and web application penetration tests.
- We undertake weekly internal vulnerability scans of all systems and infrastructure, with annual network and web application pen tests.
Application Security and Authentication
SAI Global provides extensive self-service control to each of our customers and has applied strong security measures by default.
- Passwords are encrypted using SHA 256 hashing algorithm. Data encryption at rest is defined per application and per customer requirements; when used, encrypted data will use AES256 bit as a minimum.
- The application is entirely rights and role-driven; users only see what they have been given permission to see.
- The application supports Single Sign-On (SSO), which requires users to be authenticated via their identity provider using the SAML 2.0 or Shibboleth protocols.
- All data access occurs through the application via HTTPS (TLS l.2); direct access to the database is never afforded.
- If not using SSO, password attributes are configurable by each customer including password complexity, password history and password reuse, failed login attempt count and lockout time, and challenge questions.
- Application access can be limited to one or more ranges of IP addresses.
SAI Global provides several methods of integration with third party applications using web services and data integration tools. Local applications can also be integrated with SAI Global’s solutions. Third-party integration consulting is available.
