Our servers’ network is protected using always up-to-date software and the best possible practices.
Automatic backup of the database once a day
Once a day, the database of the platform is backed up, encrypted and compressed as an archive.
Duplication of backup data automatically
As soon as a new backup is ready (database, log files,...), it is sent to others servers in several physical locations.
