Mosaic’s security teams establish policies and controls, monitor compliance with those controls, and prove our security and compliance to third-party auditors.
Our policies are based on the following foundational principles:
Access should be limited to only those with a legitimate business need and granted based on the principle of least privilege.
Security controls should be implemented and layered according to the principle of defense-in-depth.
Security controls should be applied consistently across all areas of the enterprise.
The implementation of controls should be iterative, continuously maturing across the dimensions of improved effectiveness, increased auditability, and decreased friction.
All corporate devices are centrally managed and are equipped with mobile device management software and anti-malware protection. Endpoint security alerts are monitored with 24/7/365 coverage. We use MDM software to enforce secure configuration of endpoints, such as disk encryption, screen lock configuration, and software updates.
Secure Remote Access
Mosaic secures remote access to internal resources using Tailscale, a modern VPN platform built on WireGuard. We also use malware-blocking DNS servers to protect employees and their endpoints while browsing the internet.
Mosaic provides comprehensive security training to all employees upon onboarding and annually through educational modules within Mosaic’s own platform. In addition, all new employees attend a mandatory live onboarding session centered around key security principles. All new engineers also attend a mandatory live onboarding session focused on secure coding principles and practices.
Mosaic’s security team shares regular threat briefings with employees to inform them of important security and safety-related updates that require special attention or action.
Identity and Access Management
Mosaic uses Okta to secure our identity and access management. We enforce the use of phishing-resistant authentication factors, using WebAuthn exclusively wherever possible.
Mosaic employees are granted access to applications based on their role, and automatically deprovisioned upon termination of their employment. Further access must be approved according to the policies set for each application.
Mosaic uses a risk-based approach to vendor security. Factors which influence the inherent risk rating of a vendor include:
Access to customer and corporate data
Integration with production environments
Potential damage to the Mosaic brand
Once the inherent risk rating has been determined, the security of the vendor is evaluated in order to determine a residual risk rating and an approval decision for the vendor.
