Security Assured with Admation
When Defence Force Recruiting (DFR) put out a tender for new agency representation, there were a few stringent requirements. The successful agency needed to have project management software implemented to enhance marketing efficiencies as well as offer secure data storage in Australia. VMLY&R won the account and selected admation as its preferred project management software.
As more brands seek tighter security to protect their online data, we thought it was timely to take you through a quick Q&A of the strict measures we take to ensure admation is a highly secure project management tool.
Admation Security Q&A
Hosting and Security
Where is admation hosted?
Admation is hosted in a secure dedicated rack at a Tier 3 Data Centre in Australia. The only access to the data centre is via Photo ID and biometric fingerprint security with 24/7 security.
Does admation have a backup site?
Yes. Our Disaster Recovery Site is in a separate location and on a separate power grid. Additionally, we take database snapshots every 4 hours as extra backup. Files are replicated to the Disaster Recovery Site upon upload.
Is the data encrypted?
Yes. Data is encrypted in transit (SSL) and at rest.
Does admation support SSO?
Yes. We can configure Single Sign On to work with different protocols such as SAML 2.0 and OAuth2.
Files and Data Security

The only file size limitation is a browser imposed 2GB file limit. Users can upload any file type - we automatically create thumbnail previews for most file types.

Yes. We can extract data and files. This is typically provided as a download link for all files which is named with a unique ID. This unique ID maps the file to the metadata.
