Data Security at Dropsuite
Dropsuite is a leading cloud backup platform on a mission to ensure that businesses never lose data again. If a virus, hacker attack or accidental/malicious deletions occur, our customers can restore their mission-critical data such as email, websites or databases, in just a few clicks, keeping their business operation running smoothly. To be the platform of choice for data backup and protection, security is at the core of the product management and development process at Dropsuite.
MFA Application Security
Dropsuite supports multi-factor authentication (MFA) to provide partners with an extra layer of security to help safeguard end user customer data within Office 365.
Traditional (conventional) password security offers a single layer of protection. Passwords are susceptible to being compromised through human error, coordinated cyber attacks and theft actors.
Multi-factor authentication provides an additional layer of security protection. After typing your password, multi-factor authentication software automatically contacts you via a secondary, trusted medium, such as your telephone number, and then requests a new form of verification. This second security perimeter significantly strengthens overall application security while reducing the likelihood of unauthorized threat access.
Dropsuite’s multi-factor authentication (MFA) provides partners and customers with an extra layer of security to help safeguard end user data within Microsoft Office 365. We’re proud to be a vendor that’s at the forefront of MSP security, providing MFA enhanced partner security protection for our cloud backup and archiving suite of solutions.
When you use Dropsuite Cloud Backup for Office 365, you access the Microsoft ecosystem by activating MFA. This powerful additional layer of security makes it almost impossible for hackers to infiltrate your administrator credentials, blocking a former entry point the bad guys had come to rely on. Since MFA blocks ~99.9 percent of account compromise attacks, your administrator passwords will be safe, and you’ll be able to continue doing what you do best — managing your business.
Data Encryption in Transit and at Rest
Dropsuite enhances data security for our customers’ data by enabling Transport Layer Security (TLS 1.2) cipher for data in transit. All ingress or egress data to and from Dropsuite’s cloud service will be encrypted using TLS 1.2 to prevent third party snooping.
Data at rest in Dropsuite’s storage is encrypted with Advanced Encryption Standard 256bit (AES256) cipher that ensures data is safe and secure.
Our IT infrastructure is designed and managed in alignment with security best practices and a variety of IT security standards, including:
- SOC 1, 2 and 3
- FISMA, DIACAP and FedRAMP
- DOD CSM Levels 1-5
- PCI DSS Level 1
- SO9001 / ISO27001
- FIPS 140-2
Dropsuite engages independent/external entities to conduct regular application-level and infrastructure-level vulnerability tests. We also continue to scan and test the Dropsuite application internally, and on a regular basis, preforming regular security patches or upgrades. Results of the external vulnerability testing and remediation are shared by the entire team including management and the board of directors.
