NetSuite Cloud Security Levels

NetSuite Cloud Security Levels

Security is one of the major concerns in cloud-based solutions. Once can quite understand why people think that if data and equipment is in your possession it’s safe. But that notion has changed and recent research shows that cloud-based enterprise solutions much more secure then on-premise systems. A SuiteWorld18 speaker said that data protection concerns have prompted Oracle to open data centers in many additional countries. He also pointed out that Oracle and NetSuite encrypt data in transit throughout their cloud services. NetSuite provides many redundancy levels so that data access is continuous, and replication and synchronization across data centers augment disaster recovery. Here are the levels in which NetSuite provides security:

  1. Operational Security: NetSuite has satisfied audit and security standards including SSAE 16 (SOC 1), PCI-DSS and US-EU Safe Harbor framework. NetSuite security has also modeled its security and risk management processes according to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and ISO 27000 series of standards. So with NetSuite, you get stringent security certifications for business applications that are otherwise expensive and tedious to achieve in-house. NetSuite also comes with continuous, dedicated security monitoring of applications so you benefit with security controls such as fully guarded premises and physical access management that are economically unachievable with typical in-house, on-premise deployments.
  2. Application Security: NetSuite enforces application security by controlling access with roles and privileges, auditing user activity and also by providing your administrators the ability to ensure that your users access your NetSuite instance from recognized IP addresses. The 2FA adds further security to the user login process.
  3. Physical Network Security: NetSuite ensures physical network security through continuous security monitoring with numerous intrusion detection systems. The company also performs third party scans and penetration tests which has enabled us to earn some of the industry’s highest certifications of network security such as the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium’s certification.
  4. Data Center Security: NetSuite provides on-premise security guard monitor all alarms, personal activities, access points, and shipping/receiving at the cloud data center. There is also managed physical access with Photo ID proximity access cards and biometric identification system.
  5. Database Security: Database security is implemented because no one has direct access to the database and there are 3 layers that separate data from the NetSuite application. NetSuite also allows virtualized views for development, operations, etc. and one way hash encryption for sensitive data such as CC.

For NetSuite it is important to deliver world-class security in order to maintain customer trust. The multi-tenant architecture helps roll-out security updates across their whole customer base. With advances in virtualization and hardware, it has become impossible to penetrate different security layers to get to physical servers in a cloud infrastructure.
