Security Certificates

For a government it is more important to secure data than code. It is expensive to build technology and make it secure. On the top of that it’s even costlier to keep the code a secret. So, they are particular interested in knowing how well their solution addresses and complies with privacy protection, data security, and effective information management. UK, Europe and Canada have all defined their IT policies and cyber security standards; their RFPs are judged accordingly.

Companies are increasingly migrating to cloud for better data security. While third-party cloud computing providers may take on the management of this infrastructure, the responsibility of data asset security and accountability doesn't necessarily shift along with it. Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks.

There are many industry wide standards and protocols and even paradigms that measure the security posture of a solution, but the most common points are:

* Security Information and Event Management (SIEM);
* SAML 2.0;
* Multifactor Authentication;
* Authentication support by direct LDAPS connection;
* Next Generation Firewalls and IPS to secure data;
* The ability to withstand cyberattacks like Denial of Service attacks (DoS) and the distributed ones (DDoS);
* Automated management of website security certificates (TLS);
* RBAC ability to add, remove and manage site, manage global configurations, and open support tickets;
* Application specific protections such as Web Application Firewalls;
* OAuth2 security protocol;
* Vulnerability management system like CVS which is an open industry standard used to assess and communicate the severity of software vulnerabilities.
