Security and Reliability Safeguards

(This is a draft , needs overwatch and edits)

At Tulsi MRP we know that our customers rely on us as an important part of their business processes and record keeping. We take our responsibilities to our customers seriously, and the security and reliability of the software, systems and data that make up the Tulsi application are our top priority.

Security

SSL

256-bit SSL Security

All information traveling between your browser and Tulsi is protected from eavesdroppers with 256-bit SSL encryption. The lock icon in your browser lets you verify that you aren’t talking to a phishing site impersonating Tulsi and that your data is secure in transit.

Firewalls The Tulsi application – including your data – rests securely behind firewalls.

Vulnerability scanning

Tulsi’ servers are scanned for vulnerabilities regularly by Sikich LLP, our managed security provider. These scans test our servers both from the Internet and from inside our network, and any newly-identified problems are addressed as quickly as possible.

Strong encryption

Tulsi uses industry standard encryption protocols and practices to responsibly transmit sensitive information (including cardholder data).

Physical security

The Tulsi servers are located in state-of-the-art datacentres, which provide biometric access controls, constant surveillance, redundant power feeds and generators, robust fire suppression, and carefully monitored climate control to protect the servers that store your data and manage your billing.

PCI Compliance and Card Holder Data

Cardholder data should only be input by the user in areas that explicitly require it. Tulsi handles cardholder data in accordance with PCI Data Security Standard requirements.

Where cardholder data storage is required (i.e. automatic payments on recurring templates) Tulsi leverages PCI DSS Level 1 Compliant partners who undergo an annual audit of its infrastructure. In addition, Tulsi maintains its PCI DSS Level 1 compliance and has its audit conducted by an independent third-party on an annual basis. A PCI attestation of compliance (AOC) can be requested to security@tulsimrp.com.

Secure Development Practices

Tulsi developers follow the secure development practices described in OWASP. Furthermore, we subscribe and adhere to the principals of least access.

Breach Notification

If there is a security and/or privacy breach that occurs, we will notify the necessary authorities and impacted customers within the legally required timelines based on the Applicable Data Protection Law.

Reliability

Redundant servers and datacentres

The Tulsi infrastructure uses redundant storage and servers to keep the application and your data available in the case of hardware failure – and another set of servers and storage in a geographically separate datacentre in case our primary datacentre is made unavailable by a disaster or other disruption.

Managed hosting

The Tulsi Application utilizes Google Cloud Platform (GCP) for hosting requirements. With a vast array of clients with varying needs, GCP provides an environment that allows for the fast delivery of features, continued product innovation, reliable security and stability and a reduced chance of downtime.

Backups

The data in your Tulsi account is replicated across multiple database servers in two geographic locations to prevent a single failure from causing data loss. Additionally, that data is backed up nightly to tape and stored in a secure offsite location to ensure that, even in the event of a catastrophe like a tornado or flood, your information will be safe and your records can be quickly restored.
