The first thing we do to protect your data is ensure all transmission of data between you and Sage One is encrypted. We use high grade 256-bit encryption, which is an industry standard also used in internet banking. This stops people from being able to view the information you’re sending over the internet.
If you’re using an up-to-date browser (highly advisable) then you will notice the address bar will be green while you’re signed in to Sage One. This indicates that we’re using an SSL Certificate, which gives you 100% confidence that you’re definitely connected to servers owned by Sage.
We store all of your data in a highly secure environment managed by the experts at Amazon. Each individual component that makes up the Sage One infrastructure has multiple levels of redundancy built in. This means that there are many instances of the application all running in parallel and, should something break and cause one of these instances to stop working, it’s automatically taken care of and it won’t affect you. Every component is actively monitored 24/7 and we have a team dedicated to ensuring that Sage One is highly available.
We continuously back up all your data to a secondary data center in an entirely separate physical location. This means that, should the worst happen, we’re able to quickly switch over to the secondary site without any impact on your data. All of this happens behind a series of advanced firewalls to ensure that your data is fully protected.
Every aspect of the Sage One service has been validated by specialist independent security organizations to give you the peace of mind that your data is safe with us.
But our security isn’t just about what’s written on this page, we don’t stop at the above, it’s just a start. In fact, if we were to write down everything we do, that in itself is a security risk. Rest assured that security is our number-one concern and we treat it with the respect and attention it deserves.
