Security Statement
Exsellant uses some of the most advanced technology for Internet security available today in concert with rigorous internal controls to ensure that your data remains secure.

Exsellant applications and your data are hosted in a secure environment that uses multi-factor authentication, firewalls and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access by outside intruders. Each user in your organization is assigned a unique user name and password that must be entered every time they log in. When accessing data in Exsellant applications, Transport Layer Security (TLS, also known as Secure Sockets Layer or SSL) protects your information on its way to and from our servers, ensuring that your data is safe and secure. The result: your data is always available to registered users in your organization, and completely inaccessible to unauthorized viewing and/or use.

In addition, our customer data protection policy and rigorous internal procedures ensure that Exsellant staff never has unauthorized access to your data. We understand that our manufacturing customers entrust us with their most precious asset and to ensure security we employ carefully designed organizational controls that have been verified to comply with the widely accepted SSAE 16 standard.

Data Encryption in Motion
Exsellant uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for data transfer, which establishes a secure tunnel protected by AES 256-bit encryption.

Data Encryption at Rest
Exsellant encrypts your files and sensitive data using the AES-256 standard, the same standard used by banks to secure customer data. At no time do data center personnel have access to the encryption keys used to secure your data.

Data Privacy
Exsellant takes the privacy of users and organizations very seriously and complies with the US-EU and US-SWISS Safe Harbor Frameworks as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal data from European Union member countries and Switzerland. For more information, see our Privacy Policy.

Monitoring and Audit
Exsellant provides comprehensive audit trails for nearly every action or event that occurs within our applications and our network. The identity details, IP address, and date/time are recorded for every activity.
Data Integrity and Availability
Exsellant uses dedicated servers in SSAE16 Type II SOC 1 facilities (the SSAE 16 supersedes and replaces SAS70). Exsellant applications are highly redundant, with multiple instances for all key services. Our data centers are designed to achieve no less than 'nine 9s' of durability, with data automatically replicated across multiple data centers and multiple providers for maximum redundancy.

Identity, Authentication and Access
Users are created by account administrators and must login with their email and password in order to gain access to the application. All data and activities within the application are access controlled with a role-based model; the user must be granted access in their role profile. Within the application, password strength and complexity, frequency of change, past password comparison and lockout policies can all be configured by the administrator.

Two-factor Authentication
Optionally, add an extra layer of protection to your account. Whenever you sign in to Exsellant, you'll need to enter your password and a security code from your mobile phone.
