web-based ERP provider, announced that they have hardened their operating
system and enhanced security at the system binary level in the event of a
breach or intrusion. BScaler’s complete business management solution integrates
CRM, Service, Operations and Accounting functions for a full 360-degree view
for small and medium-sized businesses.
“We are in a business that requires us to be vigilant about the security of
our customer’s data,” said John Cabri, VP of Marketing and Business
Development. “For this reason, we continue to develop a global approach around
three core security areas the data center, the internet, and the application
which we are always looking to improve.”
BScaler uses a Unix or Linux OS, depending on the deployment, at its core.
By hardening the OS and securing the system binaries, they made it extremely
difficult for someone with nefarious intent to attack their system.
Though the list of security features is long, examples of BScaler’s
commitment to security include; a 24/7 secure, access-controlled data center
employing commercial-grade firewalls for all their production servers, as well
as employing state-of-the-art monitoring software. As data is carried over the
internet, 128-bit SSL encryption is utilized to ensure data security. At the
application level, role-based IDs and passwords prevent employees from access
to data beyond the scope of their responsibility.
“Our customers appreciate our commitment to security and uptime,” said
Steven Mulhall, VP of Sales at BScaler. “We even had a Florida-based customer
whose building was completely demolished by a hurricane; they lost everything.
However, from a hotel room in Atlanta, the company’s President and his
employees were able to access their data and maintain business continuity.”
