The FastFinder software maintains three layers of security, ensuring industry-grade security across the platform. All communication between the different modules of the FastFinder system is encrypted through TLS (Transport Layer Security) 1.2+ as a security layer, combined with the OAuth2 protocol (industry standard protocol for authorization) as an authentication layer. On top of those, both the end-user facing applications and back-office applications provide an extra authorization layer, which allows specific user actions to be assigned to specific users through user roles.
Additionally, all data storage has been configured to be encrypted at rest, thanks to features provided by Microsoft Azure. This is not only applicable for file storage but also the underlying data storage of databases is encrypted in the same way. Velsera also has procedures to regularly task an independent, external party that performs a full set of manual & automated penetration tests on the FastFinder software solution. This is to confirm the absence of security issues in the FastFinder software solutions.
