Safeguarding the Integrity of Communication

Nowadays, the security of information takes precedence particularly in the digital sphere, especially within professional messaging businesses where seamless communication is imperative. Having this in mind, we built our SMS Platform to stand as a bastion of security, redefining the landscape of SMS trading by offering an all-encompassing suite of security operations crucial for the preservation and protection of valuable data.

A Holistic Approach to Security and Privacy

Security is not just an added feature in the HORISEN SMS Platform; it’s the bedrock upon which the entire system is built. With a commitment to meeting the highest security standards, the platform is designed, monitored, and maintained according to the strictest security protocols. It ensures a fortified environment to safeguard sensitive information, complying with GDPR regulations and hosting data in a secure cloud environment in Switzerland.

Security in SMS Trading

A Fortified Fortress

HORISEN SMS Platform stands as a highly protected and robust bastion for data. It boasts servers that are collocated in bank-certified data centres, employing state-of-the-art layered security measures. These measures include a fully redundant virtualization infrastructure and zero single-point-of-failure network setup nested behind high-security firewall setup. It’s protected by redundant Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection at the internet service provider (ISP) level, ensuring that only cleansed IP traffic enters the system.

Strict Access Control

Access to the platform is accurately controlled, with connections restricted solely to trusted IP addresses. For enhanced security, VPN connectivity is available upon request, while secure IPSec and TLS connections are encouraged as best practices for customers. This fortification ensures that only authorized and secure channels are permitted, minimizing the risk of unauthorized access and potential breaches.

Firm Reliability and Availability

HORISEN SMS Platform is distinguished by its high availability and exceptional robustness. With a system that boasts 99.999% availability and a no-downtime policy even during maintenance, it ensures uninterrupted service. The auto-rebinding process kicks in if a connection falters, guaranteeing continuous service without interruptions.

Cautious Monitoring and Support

The platform doesn’t just fortify its defences; it actively monitors and repairs any potential system issues. The 24/7 availability of a professional support team ensures that any concerns or challenges are swiftly addressed. Equipped with a dedicated team of developers well-versed in industry standards, the platform undertakes hands-on maintenance, problem detection, and swift resolution, ensuring the system remains resilient and secure at all times.

Incident Management

Incident Management within the SMS Platform further emphasizes our commitment to providing customers with a secure platform for their messaging needs, ensuring prompt response and resolution to any potential issues. In the event of an incident, everyone involved will be promptly notified within 24 hours, with detailed information regarding the incident provided. HORISEN places significant emphasis on these processes, demonstrating a commitment to transparency and accountability. A dedicated team is readily available to respond and address incidents at any time, ensuring that proactive measures are taken to minimize disruptions and maintain the reliability and security of the SMS Platform.

Certification, Standardization and Compliance

In order to achieve a high level of security in our program, we use a framework of controls based on ISO, NIST, OWASP and CIS requirements. In addition to ISO 27001:2022 certification and GDPR compliance, we apply system hardening measures based on CIS controls on all cloud and system components. To apply security best practices in secure software development and testing, HORISEN performs Vulnerability scans daily and 3rd party penetration tests yearly to ensure staying up to date with the newest OWASP TOP 10 and NIST guidelines.

Embracing a Secure Future

The significance of security operations within an SMS platform cannot be overstated. The HORISEN SMS Platform is a testament to the essential necessity of fortifying communication platforms, not just with cutting-edge technology but also with robust and comprehensive security measures. The platform’s dedication to the highest security standards, coupled with firm support and cautious monitoring, positions it as a reliable and secure fortress for the exchange of sensitive information.
