FPG Pulse™ is a APN Technology Partner of AWS.
APN Technology provides software solutions hosted on, or integrated with, the AWS platform. The AWS Partner Network (APN) is the global partner program allowing Pulse™ to be deployed securely throughout the globe while consistently providing a consistent and rapid delivery to our clients.
The AWS cloud infrastructure has been architected to be one of the most flexible and secure cloud computing environments available today. It provides an extremely scalable, highly reliable platform that enables customers to deploy applications and data quickly and securely.
At Pulse™ we know that it’s important for our clients to understand the protection measures that are used to guard the Pulse™ application and the AWS cloud infrastructure. How can you be sure that the right security controls are in place?
The answer lies in the third-party certifications and evaluations that AWS has undergone. AWS has achieved ISO 27001 certification and has been validated as a Level 1 service provider under the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). We undergo annual SOC 1 audits and have been successfully evaluated at the Moderate level for Federal government systems as well as DIACAP Level 2 for DoD systems.
Each certification means that an auditor has verified that specific security controls are in place and operating as intended. You can view the applicable compliance reports by contacting your AWS account representative. Not only are your applications and data protected by highly secure facilities and infrastructure, but they’re also protected by extensive network and security monitoring systems. These systems provide basic but important security measures such as distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection and password brute-force detection on AWS Accounts. Additional security measures include:
Customer access points, also called API endpoints, allow secure HTTP access (HTTPS) so that you can establish secure communication sessions with your AWS services using SSL.
We control how accessible our instances are by configuring built-in firewall rules – When your instances reside within a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) subnet, We can control egress as well as ingress.
Multi-factor authentication (MFA)
AWS provides built-in support for multi-factor authentication (MFA) for use with AWS Accounts as well as individual IAM user accounts. (Pulse™ security team)
The AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) service allows Pulse™ to add another layer of network security to your instances by creating private subnets and even adding an IPsec VPN tunnel.
Encrypted data storage
We have the data and objects stored in Amazon® S3, Glacier®, Redshift®, and Oracle® RDS encrypted automatically using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256, a secure symmetric-key encryption standard using 256-bit encryption keys.
Dedicated connection option
The AWS Direct Connect service allows you to establish a dedicated network connection from our HQ premise to AWS. Using industry standard 802.1q VLANs, this dedicated connection is partitioned into multiple logical connections .
AWS CloudTrail provides logs of all user activity.
For customers who must use Hardware Security Module (HSM) appliances for cryptographic key storage, AWS CloudHSM provides a highly secure and convenient way to store and manage keys.
