ADAPA® Predictive Analytics Scoring Engine - Security on Amazon EC2?
Many of our customers ask: “What about security on the Amazon EC2 Cloud?” Security is always the first consideration. The short answer is "yes."
The security processes implemented by Amazon Web Services (AWS) are outlined in the AWS Security Whitepaper
. In addition to the various technical details, key information in this whitepaper is that AWS is in compliance with Sarbanes Oxley (SOX), SAS70 Type II and built in HIPAA-compliant measures for healthcare applications.
The primary focus of ADAPA® is the practical application of predictive analytics, while at the same time eliminating the complexity of deployment and integration.
Besides benefiting from the entire Amazon physical and operational security processes, Zementis implemented security measures to ensure that data and models are protected with the ADAPA® scoring engine. As a decision engine, ADAPA® does not need to store any data; it merely acts as a pass through, receiving requests and returning computed results.
When an ADAPA® instance is launched on the cloud, nothing is shared. The instance is completely private (only the customer who launches the instance has its access keys). Access to the instance is only granted via HTTPS. The ADAPA® console and web service are password protected. In addition, ADAPA® utilizes the Amazon EC2 firewall to the extent of maximum lockdown.
Once an instance is terminated, all models and data are deleted within seconds, i.e. no residual information is retained. Zementis has implemented extensive security measures to ensure that data and predictive models are protected with the ADAPA® scoring engine:
: nothing is shared, the ADAPA® instance is under user’s full control and has the only access keys.
: access is only granted via HTTPS, management console and web service are password protected.
: ADAPA® utilizes the Amazon EC2 firewall to the extent of maximum lockdown.
- No residual information
: once user terminates an instance, all models/data are deleted within seconds.
