Online Campus Security

At Advanced Colleges of America, data security is of the utmost importance. The software and online services used by ACA are maintained with the most advanced data security technologies available to date.

World-Class Learning Management System:

The ACA Learning Management System (LMS) is hosted on Joules, by MoodleRooms. This reliable, secure, and password-protected learning environment provides an educational experience for ACA students that is easy to use, mobile friendly and responsive, yet secured with a full disaster recovery plan and risk analysis. The following measures are in place to prevent a complete system breakdown:
• 2 Major security releases per year (Winter/Summer);
• 2-4 Maintenance packs for small updates, as well as periodic emergency security patch updates, which typically do not require downtime;
• Joules is hosted in a physically secured architecture, with 24×7 armed security and CCTV surveillance, and multi-level security card readers with battery backup;
• Biometric scanning and data security–ensured by Moodlerooms’ vertical expertise with HIPAA, FERPA, GLBA, CA SB 1386, Sarbanes Oxley and Basel 2–provides ACA with the highest level of data security and protection.
• System security is ensured by password protection: User login information is kept secure through MD5, a 32-digit hexadecimal number that provides solid, irreversible cryptographic protection against hackers.
• Virus Scanning: Moodlerooms uses open-source ClamAV on its servers to scan, isolate and delete any corrupt files that are uploaded to Joule.
• Authentication: Moodlerooms supports more than 15 methods of authentication against external sources.
• Roles-Based Access: ACA has incorporated a user-role system for controlling access to content and delegating administration.

Fully Integrated Student Information System:

ACA’s Student Information System (SIS) runs on Salesforce.com for higher-education. Salesforce.com uses some of the most advanced technology for Internet security available today. Student records are stored on the Salesforce.com site using industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Student information is protected using both server authentication and data encryption, ensuring your data is safe, secure, and available only to registered users in ACA’s organization. Student data is completely inaccessible to unauthorized users.
