Security 

FROM LOGIN TO LOGOUT AND BEYOND

Trust is a core value of Employment Hero, so we take protecting your data really seriously. We use the same level of encryption standards and industry leading technology that banks use to manage the security and integrity of your HR data.

SECURE & HIGHLY RELIABLE INFRASTRUCTURE UNDERPINS OUR ROBUST WEB ENVIRONMENT

Employment Hero runs on Amazon Web Services technology which is backed by AWS’s 99.99% uptime service level agreements, so you can be sure you’ll always be able to access your data, whenever you need it.

Amazon’s data centre operations have been accredited under:

• ISO 27001

• SOC 1 and SOC 2/SSAE 16/ISAE 3402 (Previously SAS 70 Type II)

• PCI Level 1

• Federal Information Security Management Act – Moderate

• Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX)

MULTIPLE FIREWALL LAYERS CONTROL ACCESS

We use firewalls to restrict access and protect your data from unauthorised access. While denial-of-service attack mitigation techniques also prevent unauthorised down-time.

Our servers are only available to senior Employment Hero engineers, and we log and track all system access for auditing purposes.

And with a continuously patched OS, you can be certain that the latest security patches are applied.

HIGH AVAILABILITY FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE AND MINIMAL DOWNTIME

Employment Hero is configured to handle different loads and different failures with minimal or no downtime. In the event of an outage, disaster recovery and business continuity processes kick in automatically restoring the application and database.

Our disaster recovery and business continuity processes are regularly reviewed, tested and maintained.

BEST PRACTICE BACKUPS AND RECOVERABILITY

Your data is stored on our protected data servers, rather than your own computer. So if your PC, laptop or tablet gets stolen, you don’t need to panic about your HR data.

Our servers are located within enterprise-grade hosting facilities. SSL encryption is required when connecting to them to ensure a high level of security and privacy.

We also perform nightly backups of your data as well as pre-upgrade backups and store these copies on two different server locations for extra peace of mind.
