Hosting, Data & Security

Your documents are hosted in a purpose designed high security data centre, which is manned 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Redundant hardware is utilised to eliminate any possible single point of failure, and an independent power supply will keep the facility operational in the event of an extended power outage. Daily backups of your data ensure that in the unlikely event that a disaster should occur, your document can always be recovered.

To protect you from attack, the HR Advance service is proactively scanned every day for over 45,000 vulnerabilities. This process effectively eliminates the types of weaknesses that hackers search for and exploit, without having to wait for an attack to occur. When combined with our physical security, this system provides you with the assurance that your documents are only accessible to you.
