Cloud is a SSL-VPN based solution. This set-up allows for great flexibility and is also extremely cost efficient. The solution operates with all kinds of connections and does not have to be reconfigured in case of a move or changes in the net unlike static tunnels that need to be reestablished in case of a change in IP or net supplier. The solution is operable with NAT and existing firewalls/routers and makes it possible to have one or several back-up connections if so necessary..
The VPN-connection uses a AES-256 bit encryption that rotates keys every hour. i.e. the encryption key is exchanged every hour in order to obstruct attempts to analyze and decrypt intercepted data streams.
Authentication is done using SSL certificates with 2048 bit keylenghts in order to establish a secure communication using https://.
All critical components in the system such as servers, network equipment and storage is redundant as per the N+1 principle. This means that no component is a single point of failure, there is always an alternative route or unit that can take over without compromising the system performance.
All data centres are security classed in accordance with SSF 200:4 highest security. Alarms are connected to guard company with action on alarms and irregular guard patrolling.
