At SaaSplaza, Security in the Cloud Is Our #1 Priority
Confidentiality. Privacy. Data protection. Trust.
For many organizations considering a move to the Cloud, it all boils down to one word: security.
But for all the hype about whether or not the Cloud is secure—and is it any coincidence that most of the noise comes from people who have made a fortune selling on-premise solutions?—the fact is that the Cloud is as secure as most any on-premise solution.
That’s not true. Actually, the Cloud is MORE secure than any on-premise solution.
Cloud Security through Compliance
Why is the Cloud a safer choice than on-premise?
Part of it is due to a virtual regulatory system set-up to ensure safety and security, such as SAS70 Type II certification (now replaced by SSAE16 and ISAE3402).
Every year, SaaSplaza is audited by PWC for its ISAE 3402 and SSAE16 certification, and data security is a main topic of these audits.
SaaSplaza embraces both certifications as SSAE16 is an "attestation" standard, while ISAE 3402 is an "assurance" standard. While the standards are technically different, they both require management to provide a description of its "system" and a written statement of assertion.
SaaSplaza’s commitment to Cloud security is transparent, and so not only do we adhere to both certifications, we also make available each audit report to our customers and Partner on request.
Cloud Security through Redundancy
Another larger part of why security for Cloud solutions trumps on-premise solutions is simply that a large driver behind Cloud platforms is recovery and redundancy. Put your data in the Cloud, and it is stored securely forever. However, if something happens to the “premise” in on-premise, your data may no longer be secured; worse, it may be destroyed.
Cloud Security through a Rock-Solid Infrastructure
In the Cloud with SaaSplaza, there are not only regular backups within a server or data center, there are also redundancies via different data centers that span the globe. And the infrastructure on which the SaaSplaza cloud is built is housed in Tier 3 data centers, which offer the industry’s highest physical protection standard.
Additionally, within our data centers, network access ports are disabled by default so that no one may physically connect to our network from a data center.

Cloud Security through Software
The SaaSplaza Cloud has a multi-level security structure with four layers of firewalls, with customer data stored in the deepest layer. The network is segmented and layered to filter and restrict access, and any administrative access over any public is encrypted to ensure no capture of data during transmission.
Cloud Security through SaaSplaza
At SaaSplaza, we know that security is more than a “feature” or “benefit. At SaaSplaza, security is a mindset and it starts with our people. Not only do we carefully vet each employee before hiring (e.g., with background checks), we also re-vet them each year, train them, each year, and have them sign-off on our security documents each year.
At SaaSplaza, we take more measures than anyone to protect customer data, and that includes any other Cloud company AND any on-premise installation.
