Ultra Secure Data Center Provider Introduces Web App Compliance Service

The Bunker to use SaaSID's Cloud Application Manager to enable its financial sector customers to audit Web application use

1st May 2013, Basingstoke, UK– Web application security provider, SaaSID, has announced a partnership with The Bunker, which provides Ultra Secure Hosting, Cloud, Colocation and IT Services from within the UK's most secure facilities. The Bunker is using SaaSID's Cloud Application Manager (CAM) to provide customers with single sign-on (SSO) and centralised management of Web application features. For risk management and compliance, CAM also creates a full audit trail of interactions with Web applications.

The Bunker ProtocolTM incorporates Physical, Human and Digital security capability and processes and wraps them with a governance and standards layer that ensures that client data and clients systems are continually secure against threats to confidentially, integrity and availability.

SaaSID's CAM goes beyond SSO by centrally controlling Web application features and providing a detailed audit trail of user interactions. CAM integrates with existing identity stores, allowing sensitive information to be hidden and Web application features to be removed, according to users' roles.

The Bunker now provides its clients with 'Ultra SecureCloud Application Manager' to provide the highest level of security and monitoring to its clients in highly regulated industries, such as banking and finance. Organisations that handle sensitive financial information need to demonstrate information security and compliance with PCI DSS and ISO 27001. Compliance concerns have inhibited many firms from using Web-based applications.

CAM logs all interactions with applications under its management and displays these within intuitive dashboards. CAM Analytics provides The Bunker's customers with a complete overview of employees' Web application use, with the ability to drill down into reports for additional information on activities including data export, file sharing or social media usage.

Graham Spivey, Sales and Marketing Director of The Bunker said, "We pride ourselves on providing clients with an Ultra Secure environment to host their sensitive data, this can only be achieved by combining physical, human and digital policies and secure facilities, we call this The Bunker ProtocolTM . We wanted to extend our robust data management service to provide our clients with control and visibility of their browser-based applications.

SaaSID's Cloud Application Manager provides our clients with yet another layer to tightly control the access granted to Web application features, using strong identity credentials, while also providing a full report of data processing for compliance purposes. The dashboards allow clients to see exactly how employees are using Web applications and associated company data, regardless of whether applications are used on personal or company devices."

Ed Macnair, CEO of SaaSID said, "The Bunker's customers demand compliant solutions and demonstrable security. CAM is the only Web application management technology that goes beyond SSO to manage Web application features and functions and create a detailed audit trail. The Bunker customers can now prove to auditors that sensitive data was restricted, by showing precisely how authentication and access is managed and how employees interacted with corporate Web applications."
