Thousands of letting agents trust PayProp to manage their payments, so our top priority is to ensure that their data is kept secure at all times.
Our employees are trained in all aspects of web application security, including infrastructure vulnerabilities, cross-site scripting, secure data storage, and using the software development lifecycle to maintain and improve security. Our systems only allow access to authorised staff.
All transaction information entering PayProp systems is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No information is ever passed unencrypted in a web browser to PayProp. You can be completely secure in the knowledge that nothing you enter as part of a secure PayProp transaction can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information.
Encryption and data storage
At our Data Centre rigorous physical, electronic, and personnel security measures protect your data. Once on our systems, data is encrypted and securely stored in our dedicated hosting facilities at our Data Centre. PayProp servers are hosted in the Amazon Cloud (EU Region) providing a cost effective and robust environment for running highly available and scalable web sites. Application services are load balanced between different data centers (availability zones) ensuring high availability. The cloud environment furthermore allows for easy auto scaling as traffic to the web site increases ensuring optimal performance.
In addition to real time replication of data to multiple data centers, up to three additional layers of backups are provisioned for. The network architecture within the data centre employs sophisticated controls and authentication technologies to protect business information as well as limit unauthorised access. We employ the industry-standard, 128-bit Secure Socket Layers (SSL) protocol through a certificate, to ensure information is neither intercepted nor corrupted during transmission over the internet. In addition, we use encryption technology to help protect data when stored on disk.
On top of security measures implemented by Amazon to protect their data centers (physical and network related), we deploy additional layers of firewalls to further improve security so that the entire PayProp service application, including your data, runs securely behind firewalls and is monitored 24 hours a day by security specialists.
PayProp runs on AWS, a secure, durable technology platform with industry-recognised certifications and audits: PCI DSS Level 1, ISO 27001, FISMA Moderate, HIPAA, and SAS 70 Type II.
