Security and backup

 

Cloud-based LMS

The Learning Management System (LMS) we utilise at ATPLOnline is a 100% cloud-based solution that uses the Amazon cloud for its infrastructure. It’s reliable, secure, and safe for your data. Every part of our architecture is designed for fault-tolerance and resilience, and is built using Ruby on Rails, the most popular software framework for building modern applications.

 

Backup

Every software and hardware component has copies in more than one Amazon data center, with automatic failover in case one of the centers has a problem. We perform automatic, daily backups for disaster recovery, and these backups are stored in multiple locations for extra redundancy.

 

Uptime and performance

In the past 12 months, our average uptime has been 99.999%. Our system typically runs at below 20% capacity, so users always experience fast performance even under peak conditions. 

 

Privacy

Our platform includes the following security mechanisms to protect our students and their resources: passwords, walled communities, authenticated resource access, secure profiles, secure messaging, communications monitoring, secure e-commerce, secure storage, and secure servers. We protect credentials and data transmissions from detection while in transit in our site through encrypted passwords to ensure our students privacy.
