Infor CloudSuite & Cybersecurity


October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month


National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) is held each year to raise awareness of how important cybersecurity is and to make sure online users have all the tools needed in order to be more secure when accessing the internet. Cybersecurity is the protection of computer systems from the theft of or damage to their hardware, software, or electronic data, as well as from the disruption or misdirection of the services they provide.


Security is a major concern when it comes to the cloud environment, including cloud manufacturing solutions like ERP and BI systems. Infor CloudSuite employs a “defense-in-depth” strategy when safeguarding your data. What this means is that there are various layers of security that overlap when protecting customer data. The Infor Cloud security staff operates 24/7 to monitor the cloud environment.


The Five Security Layers


1. Application Security

  • Security requirements for every product is defined and configured into software design
  • Top 10 Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)-based code review 
  • Vulnerability testing throughout the product’s lifecycle


2. Network Security

  • The networks with Infor CloudSuite are independent and kept separate from the regular, more general Infor network
  • Multi-layer architecture built to safeguard possible attacks
  • The Infor CloudSuite network is wired, preventing exposure to third parties


3. Physical Security

  • Biometric protected data centers run the network and infrastructure


4. Infrastructure Security

  • IT services are built and maintained in agreement with the required security standards for global data centers


5. Monitoring

  • Data ownership - Customers can access it at all times
  • Managed configurations enable security
  • Password management - Multiple unsuccessful password attempts alerts the network management, prompting investigation 
  • Ability to authenticate a server - Infor CloudSuite presents an authenticated identity
