Tessell is offered as a service on top of Azure Cloud, which is an RBI-certified cloud service provider (CSP) that complies with applicable regulatory requirements and has a proven track record of strong security practices. Tessell ensures RBI guidelines are met in the following areas as well

Data Residency and Sovereignty: Tessell is enabled for all the Azure India regions. We continue to add more regions to Azure as they become available.

Access Controls: Tessell hosts databases within customers' Azure accounts. It integrates seamlessly with the in-house PAM and DAM policies of the bank, ensuring compliance and auditing checks can be enabled. Tessell does not allow any inbound connection from Public IP unless explicitly enabled

Data Encryption: Tessell databases are encrypted at rest, and only SSL connections are enabled to ensure data protection during transit. All the encryption policies are updated regularly based on industry standards.

Backup and Disaster Recovery: As per RBI Banks should ensure that regular backups of their cloud-hosted data are taken and securely stored in a geographically separate location. Additionally, banks should have a disaster recovery plan in place to recover data and restore services in the event of a catastrophic event or data breach. Tessell’s capability to set up a Multi-Region HA/DR that has near zero RPO ensures business continuity is met. Database-native backup is another unique feature of Tessell. It gives banks the freedom to choose long-term storage options (Cloud /Physical Datacenter) for database backups.
