How secure is AccountsIQ?
We host AccountsIQ on a world-class Microsoft Azure platform, with relevant certifications for ISO27001, SOC 1 & 2. Customers have the choice of being hosted in the UK, EU & US Azure regions, depending on their data residency requirements.
We partner with Transparity to manage our hosting infrastructure and 24/7 dedicated Security Operations Centre. Transparity is ISO27001 Certified Azure Expert Partner.
The AccountsIQ product and hosting platform have been independently penetration tested by PwC and Edgescan for cybersecurity. Transparity’s Security Operations Centre (SOC) works with us to ensure that our platform and data is protected using the latest and most effective cybersecurity controls and processes 24/7.
Authentication to the system requires strong passwords and Multi-Factor Authentication is available.
To restrict access to AccountsIQ’s Information assets including customer data, a variety of IT and physical measures are in place which are audited regularly. AccountsIQ has ISO27001 Information Security certification. ISO 27001 is the internationally recognised standard for information security and Cloud compliance.
Customer data is held in separate SQL databases, with no sharing of client data within the same database. This provides complete logical separation of client data.
We have built the platform to be fault tolerant, with load balanced hardware to deliver the maximum uptime possible.
All data and servers are backed up offsite nightly, to different Microsoft Azure regions, for disaster recovery purposes.
All source code is held in escrow independently with NCC UK.
