Cloud Hosting

Cloud Hosting Icon

Alfa’s ‘cloud first’ approach sees many of our customers hosted securely on the AWS public cloud.


Powered by AWS Cloud Computing


Alfa’s hosting service deploys our system securely in the AWS public cloud, providing geographical flexibility and rapid deployment while removing the responsibility of application support, monitoring and availability from our clients.

Security

Each client’s Alfa Systems environment is deployed in a Virtual Private Cloud, completely isolated from all other clients using Alfa’s hosting services. Our Security-as-a-Service provider monitors security event logs 24 hours a day, with high-severity incidents reported to Alfa within 15 minutes.

Our cloud instance is always-on, and has allowed us to scale easily as our portfolio grows.


Alfa is compliant with ISO27001, ISO27018 and the SOC2 controls for availability, integrity and confidentiality. We can deploy Alfa Systems in geographical proximity to users while meeting data residency regulations, ensuring that performance and compliance requirements can be met in the same solution.

The following are just some of the techniques that we employ to ensure that we remain ISO27001, ISO27018 and SOC2 compliant in security:

  • Encryption at rest and in transit
  • Cloud authentication of end user credentials
  • Continuous monitoring for vulnerabilities
  • Routine penetration and disaster recovery testing

Support

Alfa’s Application Support team provides remote support to both on-premise and hosting service clients, and is responsible for investigating application issues. For our cloud clients, Alfa acts as a Managed Server Provider, administering, monitoring and proactively managing the environment. As each environment is deployed separately, our clients remain in control of application releases and change deployment.

Alternatively, an on-premise deployment allows you to keep all infrastructure under your control, while private cloud infrastructure providers can be used if required.
