Data Security and Protection

Information Security at Younium

At Younium, safeguarding our customers' data is a top priority. To strengthen our authentication methods and overall information security, we are excited to announce the integration of a new authentication platform that will provide robust Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and Single Sign-On (SSO) capabilities. Here’s why these enhancements are crucial and how they help us protect your data.

We encourage all our users to review their information security settings and choose the level of security that best fits their needs, whether it's username and password, MFA, or SSO.

Ensuring your account is secured with the highest level of protection not only keeps your data safe but also helps prevent unauthorized access. By opting for MFA, you add an additional layer of defense, significantly reducing the risk of compromised accounts. SSO streamlines access while maintaining stringent security protocols. Regularly updating your security preferences ensures that you leverage the most advanced security measures available.

Why Use MFA?

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) adds an extra layer of security by requiring users to provide two or more verification factors to gain access. This significantly reduces the risk of unauthorized access due to compromised passwords. Here’s why MFA is essential:

  • Enhanced Security: MFA ensures that even if one factor, like a password, is compromised, unauthorized access is still prevented.
  • Compliance: Many regulatory standards, including SOC 2, require MFA to protect sensitive data.

Why Use SSO?

Single Sign-On (SSO) allows users to log in once and gain access to multiple applications without needing to log in again. This offers several benefits:

  • User Convenience: Simplifies the login process by reducing the number of passwords users need to remember.
  • Improved Security: Reduces the risk of password fatigue and weak passwords being reused across multiple applications.
  • Compliance and Control: Enhances compliance with security policies and improves control over user access.

Data Security and Protection

At Younium, protecting customer data is paramount. We adhere to stringent data security standards, including SOC 2, which ensure that we manage information security risks effectively.

Key Measures Include:

  • Complex Passwords: Enforcing the use of strong, complex passwords to prevent unauthorized access.
  • Regular Audits and Monitoring: Conducting regular security audits and continuous monitoring to detect and respond to threats.
  • Data Encryption: Ensuring that data is encrypted both in transit and at rest to protect it from unauthorized access.

Information Security at Younium

To ensure our customers' data is safe, we have implemented several strong measures:

  • Improved Security Systems: All new accounts will be created using our enhanced authentication platform. These new features make it much harder for unauthorized users to gain access.

  • Activation and Password Management: Customers will receive an activation email to confirm their account and set a password. If the link in the email expires, they can easily request a new one on the login page. This helps ensure that only authorized users can access their accounts.

  • MFA and SSO Setup: Customers can enable Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) as an extra security measure or enforce it for their entire team through their security settings in Younium. MFA adds another level of protection against unauthorized access. Additionally, Single Sign-On (SSO) can be set up to make it easier for users to access multiple applications with one login while maintaining high security.

  • Client Token & Client secret: Connect to Youniums powerful rest API via client secret and token connectivity. 

  • Regular Security Checks: We regularly conduct security audits and continuously monitor our systems to quickly detect and respond to any threats. This helps us maintain a secure environment and protect sensitive information.

  • Data Encryption: All data is encrypted both when it's being sent and when it's stored, ensuring it is protected from unauthorized access at all times.

  • Following Industry Standards: We adhere to important security standards like SOC 2, demonstrating our commitment to maintaining the highest levels of information security and data protection.

By implementing these measures, Younium ensures that our customers' data remains secure and compliant with industry standards, while also enhancing user convenience and security. These steps reflect our dedication to providing a secure and reliable platform for all our users.
