Industry-leading infrastructure

A Service Orientated Architecture hosted on the Windows Azure Platform

The ‘business layer’ is made up of a number of web and worker roles (Virtual Machines), which host ‘RESTful’ services that are individually secured by means of a supplied authentication string.


All communication takes place over an HTTPS (TLS) connection, credentials are checked and validated for every service requested and then the individual has their authorisation to access the particular service verified.

SHA-256 Encryption

We make use of the ASP.NET membership provider to manage the security system and ensure passwords are always encrypted.

Secure database

We use the Azure SQL Database which means any data we hold has all the protections afforded by the platform, this includes firewall protection limiting connections to only authorized services hosted within the Azure infrastructure.


We are always up to the date with all applicable laws and regulations, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
