Data Storage: We maintain the Authenticx environment within multiple Microsoft Azure data centers. If one data center experiences any outage or failure, a contingent data center will handle all traffic. By default, Azure provides durable infrastructure to store important data and is designed for durability of 99+% of objects.

Data Encryption:  All data in the Authenticx platform is encrypted, using TLS 1.2 or greater for data in-transit and AES-256 encryption for data at-rest. 

Host Application: Authenticx is hosted and operates entirely in Microsoft Azure. All data is stored across multiple data centers and processed in the United States. By hosting with Microsoft Azure, we have the benefit of leveraging infrastructure with SOC II, ISO 27001, HITRUST, FedRAMPand other compliance certifications, in addition to native firewall and IDS protection. 

External Penetration Tests: Authenticx runs regular penetration tests and vulnerability scans through third parties and utilizes tools within Azure for ongoing vulnerability monitoring. 

Granular Permissions: Authenticx offers admin permissions within its platform along with access level controls, which allow for client-specific configurations of granular permissions.  

Personal or Sensitive Information: Authenticx only collects the information needed to provide services. Authenticx maintains policies and procedures that limit the exposure, use, disclosure, and requests for any sensitive information. We do not resell any data. 

Network Controls

Protected Secure Communication: Authenticx has HSTS enforced transport security policy mechanism protecting our website with all client data flowing exclusively over HTTPS.  

Encrypted Communication: All communication is secured using TLS 1.2 or greater, is encrypted end-to-end, and encrypted at rest using AES-256 

Private Networking Connection: Authenticx uses strict virtual network service endpoint policies to provide strict granular access control for virtual network traffic with Azure over service endpoint connection. Authenticx uses native firewall capabilities within Azure for traffic into and within the virtual network of Azure. 

Authenticated Connection: Authenticx has common Access Controls for all sessions and required authentications for all connections. Single Sign-On (SSO), Bring-Your-Own-Key (BYOK), and platform specific credentials are available options for connection to the Authenticx platform.
