We utilize the following protocols, infrastructure and programs to secure our servers and website transactions:
All traffic to the election website will be encrypted using digital certificates. HTTPS uses Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) to ensure a secure connection from the web browser to the server, and protects both voter personal information and the vote itself. The same technology is widely used in billions of e-commerce transactions.
Our network is secured using the Juniper Networks SRX100 Services Gateway. This firewall is a high-performance network security solution that consolidates a variety of features including security, routing, switching, WAN connectivity, Unified Threat Management (UTM), antivirus, application security, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), antispam, and enhanced Web filtering. Our network security features provide complete functionality and flexibility for delivering secure Internet access.
Symantec Endpoint Protection. Symantec Endpoint Protection goes beyond antivirus to deliver layered protection at the endpoint. Leveraging the power of Global Intelligence Network, Insight and SONAR technologies analyze the reputation and characteristics of suspicious files to determine if they pose a danger to our systems. Network Threat Protection analyzes incoming data streams and proactively blocks threats. Combined with traditional antivirus, firewall and IPS, these technologies deliver full protection across both physical and virtual systems.
