Please be aware, if you are a user of our other Enalyzer products, Enalyzer Survey Solution and Enalyzer Relations Panel, the following Security applies.
Platform securityEnalyzer is hosted at two separate data centers in the Netherlands and Ireland, with real-time replication of data between the two. Uptime is guaranteed at 99,9 %. These data centers comply with industry standards, such as ISO 27001, for physical security and availability. Each facility is designed to run 24x7x365 and employs various measures to help protect operations from power failure, physical intrusion, and network outages. Read more about the location of the data centers.Azure networking provides the infrastructure necessary to securely connect virtual servers to one another and to connect on-site datacenters with Azure servers. Azure blocks unauthorized traffic to and within the datacenters by using a variety of technologies such as firewalls, partitioned local area networks, and the physical separation of back-end servers from public-facing interfaces.Enalyzer encrypts data and safeguards customer data. Enalyzer encrypts data in storage and in transit to align with best practices for protecting confidentiality and data integrity. In order to protect customers against online threats, the platform uses Antimalware for cloud services and virtual machines and uses detection and mitigation techniques to protect against DDoS attacks.Centralized monitoring and analysis systems provide continuous visibility and timely alerts to the teams that manage the service. There are rigid controls that restrict access to Azure by Microsoft employees.Accordingly, Enalyzer also has strict internal procedures describing whom from Enalyzer can access the Azure platform, and when the Azure platform can be accessed.Microsoft undertakes regular penetration testing to improve Azure security controls and processes.
Product securityEnalyzer systems are delivered as SaaS systems and can be accessed through any modern web browser.All users have separate usernames and passwords. Multiple failed sign-in attempts to the same account result in a temporary lockout, which is automatically reactivated after 5 minutes. Simultaneously, the account user will be informed by email about the failed sign-in attempts. Multiple failed login attempts from the same IP Address enhances the security process by using Captcha security technology.All sign in and password information to the application is encrypted. Passwords are stored as hash values.All data sessions between the user and Enalyzer, within the application, is encrypted. Data collected from respondents is by default encrypted. Communication to the application from Enalyzer system administrators and developers are encrypted using VPN, and the communication to the Azure servers is only available from the Enalyzer office.On the servers, logging is done on all internet traffic. All operations can be identified by a security token,that can be traced back to the individual user. For applications, Logging is done on all critical operations. Each log contains information about who did what and when. The log is available to the systems administrative users.The Enalyzer support team can only access an Enalyzer user account if the user has granted them access. Find more information about security
Privacy protectionOur commitment to the privacy of our customer data is backed by Microsoft’s adoption of the world’s first international code of practice for cloud privacy, ISO/IEC 27018. The British Standards Institute has independently verified that Azure is aligned with the ISO 27018 code of practice for the protection of personally identifiable information in the public cloud. Data is stored in the EU (Netherlands and Ireland) and Microsoft has undertaken contractual privacy commitments that help assure that privacy protections in the Azure platform are strong. Among the many commitments supported are:

- - EU Model Clauses. EU data protection law regulates the transfer of EU customer personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area. Europe’s privacy regulators have determined that the contractual privacy protection Azure delivers meet current EU standards for international transfers of data.
- - ISO/IEC 27018, which was developed to establish a uniform, international approach to protecting the privacy of personal data, stored in the cloud.
ComplianceOur platform meets a broad set of international and industry-specific compliance standards, such as ISO 27001, HIPAA, FedRAMP, SOC 1 and SOC 2, as well as country-specific standards including Australia CCSL, UK G-Cloud, and Singapore MTCS. Rigorous third-party audits verify Azure’s adherence to the strict security controls these standards mandate. As part of our commitment to transparency, you can verify our implementation of many security controls by requesting audit results from the certifying third parties, or through your Enalyzer account representative.
