Application Security and IP Protection:

Kanda has developed various enterprise-class applications that require strict security protocols. Security is assured at several levels, including authentication and authorization capabilities, communication and data security. Security risk is mitigated by an established application and Data Access Control policy:

  • All employees are under NDA and undergo security training
  • Access to the infrastructure is strictly governed by the role of the person
  • No people outside of the core development team have access to production servers
  • Access to the application is by invitation of the customer, with appropriate permissions, and only for Support purposes

As a result of our strict security policies we have experienced zero security-related breaches or complaints in our 17-year history.

Kanda US and offshore personnel are trained extensively in security, including conducting stand-alone security audits for some of our clients. Furthermore we have established a relationship with Security Innovation, one of the premier providers of software security audits, who work with us in circumstances where the client needed the security audit must be provided by an independent entity.
Client applications are written utilizing secure coding practices, as well as secure architecture principles, such as principle of least privilege, of fail-safe, of economy of mechanism, of complete mediation, of open design, of separation of privilege, etc. The code is audited in house for SQL injection and cross-site scripting attacks. Input is normally taint-checked by the application before being processed.
Kanda works with companies and on enterprise-class applications that have stringent confidentiality and security requirements.
Code access, confidential data protection, application security, and other security-related concerns are of paramount importance to Kanda and our partners. These are especially critical for government, defense, and HIPAA-covered entities among our partners.
