Security FAQs

The Sage Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) reports directly to the Sage board and spearheads our global security team. This team encompasses product security, architecture, governance, risk, compliance, security engineering, 24/7 operations, awareness, education, business continuity, and incident response. Moreover, every colleague plays a pivotal role in upholding security at Sage.

At Sage, we adhere to the 'least privilege' principle. Users are granted access solely to specific data, resources, and applications necessary for their tasks, ensuring tight control over our cloud environments.

Sage products are hosted on renowned public cloud platforms: Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS). By leveraging their top-tier security features, we ensure that Sage cloud software is accessible anytime, from anywhere.

Many Sage products employ TLS (Transport Layer Security) version 1.2 or higher. TLS encrypts data transmitted over the internet, and versions 1.2 and above are recognised for their security. If you're using a cloud service, ensure they utilise this version.

Absolute security is elusive. However, Sage employs a comprehensive set of technical controls, adopting a layered, defence-in-depth strategy. This is complemented by targeted awareness programs, advanced detection systems, and tools designed to identify malware-related traffic.
