AWS Cloud Security
Nextpoint products are deployed through Amazon Web Services. Amazon has invested billions of dollars in internet technologies to ensure that Amazon Web Services is the fastest, most reliable, and most secure data host. Amazon Web Services far surpasses even the strictest privacy and security standards, including standards held by the United States Department of Defense. Simply put, there is no more secure and dependable service for storing electronic data.
Among the Amazon Web Services utilized by Nextpoint are several services specifically engineered to support secure infrastructure and applications. These include CloudWatch, used to monitor and warn of unusual system activity; virtual private cloud, used to fortify environment security; and Identity and Access Management, used to restrict Nextpoint employee access to client data as well as facilitate highly secure data uploading.
Access to the Amazon Web Services environment is restricted by IP address and blocked after five failed attempts.
