At EdFiles, Security is Priority One. On all Levels!

Our Data Center covers all three critical security areas: physical security, operational security, and system security. Physical security includes locking down and logging all physical access to servers at our data center. Operational security involves creating business processes that follow security best practices to limit access to confidential information and maintain tight security over time. System security involves locking down customer systems from the inside, starting with hardened operating systems and up-to-date patching.
