Badge access is required to enter and exit the building, with additional access required to secure areas. Cameras monitor the office locations.

Third Party Penetration Tests

Security Incident Event Management
Opendate utilizes a security information and event management (SIEM tool). Opendate's Information Security Team reviews logs and alerts for performance and security considerations including logs relating to authentication, endpoint, web application, and more.
Intrusion Detection and Prevention

Within the application, customers can review the logs and set up alerts to be emailed if certain activities occur, such as a failed login attempt or if a document has been downloaded or exported.
DDoS Mitigation
