Technical Support & Operations

Impexium maintains direct support relationships with our software vendors. We do not engage channel partners for support unless required by the vendor. We have named contacts with second level support for all of our critical software platforms. Our engineers and architects maintain up-to-date training. The entire support team receives up-to-the notifications of health and alerts that impact the stability of the system. Our rapid response team reacts with an all-hands-on-deck mentality when unexpected events occur. Our extensive monitoring platform gives our support team up to the minute awareness of the health of our systems.

Our operations philosophy is fast paced with a focus on stability and performance. Every configuration change or code deployment is evaluated for security and impact based on an established process of rigorous testing and in-depth peer review. Every change is created in our development environment and test deployed in staging before being approved for production. Our Quality Assurance team weighs in on every major change before implementation.

Disaster Recovery

All critical data is stored on highly redundant, highly performant storage systems that are monitored for stability, tuned for performance, and configured to tolerate multiple failure of individual components. All data and system files are automatically backed up on a regular basis to minimize the risk of data loss and enable the recovery of data with minimal downtime. Backups of the database, network and file shares, and servers are scheduled daily. Differentials are backed up every two hours. Weekly full SQL backups are conducted within SQL native, in addition to 5-minute transactional backups. Backed-up data is appropriately secured and not accessible to unapproved users. Data and configuration files required to provide service continuity in case of a site failure are synchronized daily to our secondary sites to minimize downtime in case of unforeseen disaster.

Impexium leverages a multi-tiered backup retention methodology to provide varying levels of recoverability. We have secure copies of backups maintained in the Azure cloud environment.

Network Security

The Microsoft Azure Cloud platform provides a highly reliable and secure service to our customers. Azure provides packet filter firewalls at the individual network adapter level and the network and subnet levels. Administrative access to the systems is restricted to authorized personnel. Web Application Firewalls (WAF) are also in place to provide a higher layer, more intelligent protection for more sophisticated attacks

Impexium deploys a managed 24/7 SIEM/MDR, that extends our risk management profile by utilizing threat hunting, Machine Intelligence, and anomalous behaviors to identify, detect and prioritize any threat to the environment. Our SOC team is immediately alerted to any vulnerability and cyber threat and provides a clear path to response and eradication as required.
Remote access to production and development environments is restricted to authorized staff and secured via an encrypted VPN using multi-factor authentication. Administrative access to the VPN is restricted to authorized personnel.

Physical Security

Access to Impexium’s physical location in Virginia is secured and restricted to authorized personnel.


The Compliance team is committed to aligning compliance efforts to ensure the security, quality, and efficiency of all systems and customer information. The team works to prevent, detect, and respond to business conduct that is inconsistent with the organization’s values, as well as regulatory requirements.

Our regulatory and security compliance efforts are periodically reviewed and enhanced.
Using a risk-based approach, the team evaluates internal controls across the organization to ensure alignment with PCI DSS, SOC 1, Type 2 control requirements, and soon, SOC 2, Type 1 requirements.
The team monitors organizational controls for federal, state, and other country regulatory requirements.
