IFS Cloud security has been designed with modularity and flexibility in mind. This allows enterprises to select the level of security that is right for them, balancing threat prevention with simplicity and ease of use.

IFS Security Model

Communication Security

  • IFS Cloud extrenal network communication is always protected by TLS/SSL encryption (HTTPS). Since IFS Cloud is based on standard technologies it can be used with standard network-level security solutions such as firewalls, proxies and VPN-networks. If exposing the IFS Webserver/Middlewareserver to internet, URL filtering in proxy can be used to limit which URL's should be available publicly. Demilitarized zone (DMZ), hardened perimeter defense, and other firewall strategies; all of these can be used with IFS Cloud.

Access Security

  • System Access - All client requests to IFS Cloud will require authentication. User credential validation is performed through the OpenID Connect-protocol.
  • Application Access - The IFS Cloud architecture enforces a uniform role-based security model across the entire application. The role-based authorization model of IFS Cloud ensures that only authorized employees have access. Authorization can be performed by function (what can I do?) and data (what ranges of data may I see?).

Content Security

  • IFS Cloud relies on standard network, operating system, and database security, and does not add or require a proprietary layer. Only established technologies with known security properties are used, including OpenID Connect, HTTP and SSL/TLS.
  • IFS Cloud has a built-in log function that tracks all modifications to data, including details of what was modified by whom and what the previous values were. This creates a clear audit trail of all changes or removals of data.
