📄️ Reliability Principles
Reliability is one of key characteristics differentiating an enterprise-grade ready cloud service from an average consumer service. To ensure reliability of our offerings, Virtru is following these core principles when managing infrastructure:
Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) is a protocol for securing DNS traffic. By implementing DNSSEC Virtru is protected from DNS attacks such as cache poisoning, DNS spoofing, or a man-in-the-middle attacks allowing attackers to gain unauthorized access to customer and system information.
📄️ Network Architecture
Virtru utilizes Virtual Private Networks (VPCs) to segregate network traffic across our cloud services.
📄️ Infrastructure as Code (IaC)
Infrastructure as Code is a method of provisioning and managing infrastructure through the use of source code, rather than by using manual processes. With IaC, developers, operations, and security teams automatically manage Virtru's tech stack, helping to configure and deploy these components quickly and consistently.
📄️ Account Segregation
For hosting infrastructure, Virtru uses cloud service providers, primarily Amazon Web Services (AWS.) Virtru uses individual accounts for different environments and functions. Each account is considered self contained, not requiring any other to operate in a static state.
📄️ On-Call Engineering
Virtru employees provide 365/24/7 on-call coverage to quickly respond to any security or infrastructure incidents. Virtru's Incident Response Plan is followed during all incidents, and customers are informed of the response to any customer impactful incident.
