Single Sign On & OAuth Login

For increased security and a simpler login process we support Single Sign-On with SAML, we have set up the most popular cloud-based identity providers including Azure Active Directory, OKTA, OneLogin and G-Suite or you can use your own internal providers, for example, Active Directory Federation Services.

Secure Cloud Hosting

Workstars’ servers are hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS), who also host some of the internet’s most popular services including Netflix, Pinterest, Slack, Workday, Zendesk, Reddit, Airbnb and Docker.

For more information about AWS data centers, access controls, reliability, disaster recovery and security controls, please visit the following links:

As well as the standard AWS security controls, all Workstars web servers are physically and logically separated from our database servers (where our customer data is stored). Application and database servers are protected by firewalls and intrusion detection systems which are monitored 24/7. Access is restricted to only the people who required access and all access is logged and monitored.

After an extensive tender process, we realised there were very few SaaS providers with truly global recognition capabilities, but the Workstars team stood out. Their people understand the challenges and their software solves them all. Good company, highly recommended.

Application Security

We take the security of your data extremely seriously and utilize multiple layers of protection, including:


All connections between your browser and our servers are made via 256-bit SSL encryption using only the latest ciphers.

Administration Portal

You can add multiple scheme administrator accounts and restrict what can and can’t be accessed. All access is logged for a minimum of 90 days.

Two Factor Authentication

All Workstars employee logins are protected by two-factor authentication. This is also available on the client administration portal.

Employee Password Policies & SSO

You can choose a low, medium or high password complexity for your employees or you can implement Single Sign-On with SAML for maximum security.

File Encryption

All sensitive files that you upload are encrypted with client-specific keys using AES-256 which are regularly rotated.

Secure Development

Development and staging environments are separated physically and logically from the Production environment. No actual customer data is used in the development or test environments.

Our developer team are trained on the OWASP Top 10 security flaws and our application is regularly scanned for vulnerabilities.

The source code repositories for Workstars are continuously scanned for security issues by static code analysis tools.

Third Party Auditing

Our web application undergoes an annual web application penetration test which is available to our clients upon request.
