Server security

Server security

The Beenia application is running in Amazon data centres. AWS (Amazon Web Services) delivers a state-of-the-art cloud platform with high availability and dependability and tools that enable running a wide range of applications. Protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their customers’ systems and data is of the utmost importance to AWS, that's why we chose this service, too:

  • Amazon EC2 servers / Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud

The servers on which Beenia is hosted are located in the Amazon data centres with the highest degree of security and the latest technologies.

  • Amazon RDS database / Relational Database Service

To offer you the fast performance, high availability, security, and compatibility you need, we use this relational database service (RDS) provided by Amazon. Among other things, it also enables database encryption using keys – Key Management Service (KMS).

  • Amazon S3 storage space

Amazon S3 is an object storage service that can be used to collect and store any amount of data from anywhere – e.g. websites, mobile applications, enterprise applications, sensor data, or IoT devices. It offers comprehensive security and compliance options in accordance with the strictest regulatory requirements.
