Platform Security
YuJa’s Enterprise Video Platform (EVP) offers institutions industry-leading security measures to ensure continuous availability and enterprise security.
System Security

Data Security — All sensitive user data is transmitted through an encrypted SSL channel which uses 256 bit encryption.

Data Center Security — We use Amazon Web Services (AWS) as our key data center. To learn more about AWS’s physical and environmental procedures, please review this document.

At-Rest Data Security — All sensitive user data is either transmitted or stored via encryption or using industry-standard salting and/or hashing.

User Security — Access to YuJa systems that utilize data stored in our data centers is restricted to authorized full-time YuJa employees. We do not use external contractors or temp agencies.

Transfer Protocols

The Enterprise Video Platform (EVP) runs entirely on HTTPS. This covers all suites and also includes our user authentication, media streaming, user management, data accesses, and platform administration.

Monitoring & Upgrades

We use external, multi-continent monitoring tools, as well as, internal customdesigned internal monitoring and alert tools across our systems.

YuJa’s Solutions and Product Team are responsible for providing testing guidelines that use Vulnerability Mapping to identify potential vulnerabilities and attack vectors with the systems.

Network Availability

YuJa validates that all Enterprise Video Platform (EVP) sub-systems are accessible using our external, multi-continent 24×7 monitoring system.

Up Time: YuJa’s Enterprise Video Platform has an up-time of nearly 100%, with a cumulative system total of 99.9%.

Server Response Value: Our network and systems are optimized to provide a response value within approximately 200-400ms.

Disaster Planning

RTO (“the recovery time”) in a catastrophic production system event where our onsite read replicas are intact is one calendar day with an RPO (“maximum data loss”) of zero across both the cloud storage and relational databases. In the event of a catastrophic production system event where our onsite read replicas are destroyed across all availability zones, the relational databases would have an RTO (“the recovery time”) of one calendar day with a RPO (“maximum data loss”) of at most one calendar week of database updates.
