Safe systems - your security

Cloud

Hippocrates systems are cloud-based and currently consist of three servers that manage the different parts of the systems. On the other hand, we have a robust web server that takes care of everything related to the web services. To this we have connected an isolated server where the database is located. By separating the database from the web server, we minimise the risk of any intrusion into the system. The database is also encrypted at file level - ensuring that no unauthorised person could read its contents if they came across it. The third machine is our SMS server, which only sends SMS messages to all customers of the system.

All communication to all our services takes place over HTTPS to ensure a secure connection to us. All traffic is routed through cloudflare.com and their firewalls that make it difficult for hackers to try to get into our systems. Once the traffic is close to our servers, we also have firewalls as extra protection against attacks on each server.

The data center is located in Karlstad and is housed in premises that previously belonged to the Swedish Armed Forces. The armed forces are partly still operating there, which means that the premises are monitored 24/7 by security and armed personnel.

The servers are protected with environmental monitoring, cooling and redundant electricity supply via UPS and diesel units. All vital server components are built according to the N+1 principle for the services to be available 24/7.

The servers are connected to one of the largest and most powerful backbone networks in Europe. Through the connection, we can give you as a customer fast response times and high availability. The connection is via fiber with redundancy and geographical diversity (inputs from different geographical positions).

Backups

Full backups are taken on the Web server and the database server daily. In addition to this, backups are also taken during the day on the database server in order to recover a transaction log in case something goes amiss. Should a system go down, a new instance will be launched within a few minutes. These backups take place locally in the network where the machines stand and we also take an encrypted database backup once a day that is sent out externally within Sweden.
