Data Security Document

Our online systems, & are hosted on secure servers provided by HA247 Limited. Information regards the security of data and building security is as detailed below.


Security is Safety 4 Limited's highest priority and it has driven our choice of third-party server providers to host our online systems. For this reason we use HA247 limited who's data centre, server configuration, software and procedures are as below:

Server continuity, back-ups and preservation of data

HA247 High Availability servers have fully automated failover. Their High Availability service uses three servers per client (Linux or Windows dedicated server, plus real-time replication server, plus separate data back-up server in a geographically separate data centre.

Daily back-ups are kept for 30 days by default, or longer if required. HA247 ensures that replication between the primary server and replication server is consistent. If a server fails, ARCHI monitoring software will issue the command to fail over the server within 30 seconds. If the server fails to start due to file corruption, HA247 will repair the server from the latest complete backup.

Firewalls: hardware and kernel-based

All HA247 servers are supplied with software firewalls. In Linux servers this is IP Tables, and with Windows it is Windows own firewall.

Network security and mitigation of malicious cyber-attacks (e.g. DoS and DDoS)

HA247 data centre systems are fully automated and analyze traffic before it hits the client's server to identify an attack and automatically disrupt it.

Operating System security maintenance

OS security is automatically updated. System checks are put in place to ensure all security updates are applied correctly.

Intrusion detection and prevention

OSSIM and OSSEC (HIDS) intrusion detection systems are deployed to provide an alert to potential attack and security threats.
