According to industry experts "security impacts every aspect of the way organizations do business and business executives understand that secure operations mean fewer losses, more productivity and a very real business advantage."
ASL's security strategy and decisions are driven by both market and environmental factors. As a standards-focused company, international standards and security regulations such as ISO17799 and country-specific legislation such as Canada's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) govern security management within our software applications and implementation methodologies.
Our security architecture takes a holistic view of the enterprise computing environment from ASL's applications and databases to operating systems and networks. We look at threat profiles to these layers and provide guidance and techniques for securing our applications and databases that enhance the overall security of the computing environment
Because of the confidential and sensitive nature of information contained in ASL's applications, we focus on three key areas. Authentication and access control, fixing and eliminating security vulnerabilities and managing threats by intrusion detection and elimination. This focus allows us to effectively build trusted applications.
