Hosting Environment 

We have had a few questions from our users regarding the security, privacy and sovereignty of the system since the announcement of Meercat’s purchase by VelocityEHS in the United States.

Please rest assured that no aspect of the hosting environment has been changed as a result of the VelocityEHS acquisition.

We are continually finding ways to improve the reliability, performance and security of the hosting environment and any future changes will only be made to further improve the security and privacy of your information.

Recently we completed Penetration Testing (PEN testing) on the environment which not only confirmed the robustness of the environment, but identified some additional improvements which have either already been implemented or are in the process of being implemented. In addition, SSO support, as implemented by default in Version 8, across all our customer sites will only strengthen the security perimeter further.

As we align with Velocity’s processes over the coming months and years, we expect that our currently high levels of security will only increase with the benefit of their deep pool of technical specialist resources and experience. However, we can assure all our customers that no changes to their hosting environment will be made without appropriate consultation with you.

If there are any specific concerns related to the hosting environment, security, data residence, etc. please don’t hesitate to contact us on +61(08)6468-5351 or perthsupport@ehs.com

In NSW alone, the fires have killed nearly 500 million birds, reptiles and mammals.
