Third-Party Protection

Athennian has adopted the highest standard of organizational controls relevant to cloud SaaS companies, in line with the Trust Services Criteria established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). The Athennian Operations team uses third-party monitoring tools to closely monitor any spikes in activity above predefined thresholds.

Platform Monitoring and Logging

We deploy Intrusion Detection System (IDS) sensors at critical points in our infrastructure to alert our security team when unauthorized attempts to access our platform occur. The Operations team uses established procedures to address them and any potential security threats they may represent.
