Data Encryption

Each Perfect Portal application is accessed via HTTPS using Transport Layer Security (TLS). TLS is a cryptographic protocol designed to protect information transmitted over the internet, against eavesdropping, tampering, and message forgery.

Once client data reaches Perfect Portal’s cloud infrastructure, all information is then encrypted at rest, using industry standard AES-256 encryption. This is done to protect client information in the event a Perfect Portal server is compromised by an unauthorised party.

Service Availability

Perfect Portal has been designed to be a highly available, active-active solution. Perfect Portal’s services are split over multiple AWS datacentres within the UK. In the event of one data centre going offline in a disaster scenario, the second data centre continues to serve data with minimal, if any, service interruption.

Perfect Portal’s service is designed to scale up as more clients use it at peak times, and then scale down at low times. This scaling allows Perfect Portal to mitigate external attacks trying to flood our system resources.

Data Ownership

The data contained in Perfect Portal remains the property of the licensed subscriber. If the subscriber ends their agreement with Perfect Portal, Perfect Portal will retain the data for a minimum of seven (7) years, before having it destroyed.

At any time during the post active subscription, seven (7) year period, a subscription can be reactivated to gain access to the client data. Unless directed by the customer to remove all copies of data, backups of the data may remain in Perfect Portal archives as part of our standard retention policies.
