The DNA Software Application Portal is powered by the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) service, and can be accessed by any computer, tablet, or mobile device.  The EC2 platform has been utilized by over 60,000 companies worldwide for their Software as a Service (SaaS) product applications.  Diverse businesses, including banks, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and social media services, depend on the security of the EC2 platform to protect the flow of sensitive information.1

What is DNA Software (DNAS) doing to protect your data on the internet and in the cloud?

In the world’s fastest growing commercial sectors, the protection of Biotechnological, Pharmaceutical and Agricultural proprietary information is the most important issue being faced today.  New methods and products can reshape and revolutionize how we think about the human experience, which could translate to millions, if not billions, of dollars in revenue. So what is DNA Software (DNAS) doing to protect the data used by qPCR CopyCount and ThermoBLAST ?  Since the DNA Software Application Portal exists within an AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), we are able to place strict limitations on access of portal instances by utilizing EC2 security groups, which provide inbound and outbound filtering at the instance and subnet levels.2 Amazon’s Web Services have also achieved ISO 27001 certification as a Level 1 service provider under the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) and is certified as a Level 2 provider for Department of Defense (DoD) systems.3,4
