MortgageFlex Systems & Microsoft Provide Stability and Security for Hosted Clients
MortgageFlex partners with Microsoft Cloud to provide unparalleled secure, stable, and economical hosting.
MortgageFlex Systems has enhanced their hosting services by partnering with Microsoft as a Gold Application Developer and using Microsoft Cloud’s Azure platform. The decision was driven by the desire to provide clients with more transparent and scalable hosting services.
This choice facilitates quicker setups, provides clients with the strongest security features available, flexible scaling capabilities, and worldwide support.
Recent banking articles indicate that the industry threat is increasing, with mortgage lenders being at special risk. To combat this danger, stricter state and federal guidelines are evolving and lenders are being required to vet their vendors even more rigorously.
Microsoft provides the best available cloud solution for the LoanQuest LOS application because of its security, stability, and scalability. Microsoft also offers the most comprehensive set of certifications and attestations of any cloud service provider.
MortgageFlex delivers a unique combination of secure hosting, scalability, business continuity, and cost effectiveness. The company begins the process by recommending a hosting configuration based on the loan volumes and user count. As business needs change, clients may request an upgrade or downgrade at any time to size the system servers. If volume grows or slows, hosting resources can be increased or decreased. If peak volumes occur at month end, then MortgageFlex can upgrade servers as needed, then reduce the resources when the peak is over. Clients pay for the services and resources that are consumed and no more.
To further enhance security, MortgageFlex uses Azure Encryption Keys to encrypt all documents in transit and at rest, in storage. LoanQuest also utilizes column level encryption in SQL Server to encrypt critical fields such as account numbers, Social Security Numbers and other Non-Public Personally Identifiable data. In addition, critical fields are masked on the screens based on the users clearance level.
Using advanced features of the Azure Cloud, the LoanQuest IT infrastructure supports the highest level of business continuity. All clients have a secure separate test system and Active Geo-Replication (a secondary database in a separate paired region for disaster recovery). An additional three copies of the database are stored in a second Microsoft data center location at least 300 miles from the primary data center. If the primary data center becomes inaccessible, the database will be recovered in the secondary center in less than 30 seconds.
MortgageFlex hosted clients utilize a per closed loan pricing structure, unlike most SaaS offerings that charge based on user count. This option is exceptional in the LOS market and gives clients logical cost choices and enables lenders to make informed decisions on their company’s hosting environment, today and into the future.
