Encrypted Data At Rest

LockThe production environment of the ITRP service was recently migrated to an entirely new infrastructure. The QA environment has already been running on an identical infrastructure for several months to proof the quality of its architecture.

Apart from many other security enhancements, this new infrastructure ensures that all customer data (including all attachments) is encrypted before it gets stored. Even though the data centers where this data is stored are extremely well protected both physically and digitally, at rest encryption provides an additional layer of protection. It ensures that, if someone would somehow manage to get access to the devices on which ITRP customer data is stored, this data cannot be read.

The extra security that this offers organizations against the potential loss of sensitive data is now a standard feature of the ITRP service. It is provided at no extra charge.
