Protecting your data
We are committed to the security of all the data in Hoowla. That means physically and digitally.
You control access
We provide standard access to Hoowla through a login and password. We also offer the option of using two-step authentication. This provides a second level of security for your Hoowla account. It means you’re also asked to enter a unique code generated by a separate authenticator app on your smartphone. We recommend you use two-step authentication as it reduces the risk of your Hoowla account being accessed if your password is compromised.
Our users data, including personal data, is housed in a highly available, scalable solution situated in the ISO 27001 certified AWS datacentres in Dublin. https://aws.amazon.com/compliance/data-center/
Briefly this means
- Access is scrutinised, controlled and monitored.
- Video surveillance.
- Intrusion detection, and access log monitoring systems
- Physical access is strictly controlled by two factor authentication and 24 hour security escorts
- Core applications are deployed to an N+1
Hoowla 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.
