The alternative investment industry requires hedge fund and private equity fund administration firms to provide a significant degree of confidentiality and security for our clients and their investors. AFA employs Department of Defense (DOD) Standards to include encryption algorithms such as AES 256 for customer data encryption, EV SSL for Client Login Access, SFTP for secure files transfers and PGP encryption for secured email communications. Our security standards are audited annually to comply with AFA’s SSAE16 Type II level compliance.
All AFA offices and remote access points are interconnected using encrypted Virtual Private Networks (VPN's) to insure that all data interchanged between the firm’s offices remains entirely secure.
AFA's infrastructure is secured with CheckPoint's SecurePlatform products which includes centralized Antivirus and Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDS/IPS).
