Xinja emails get maximum security score

Email. It is hard to imagine life without it. Although invented back in the seventies, it became mainstream in the nineties. Unlike overalls and bandanas, it remained popular until this day. So popular in fact, that spam and so called ‘spoofing’ has become a real threat on the internet. This is how Xinja keeps their emails super secure.

Xinja is now PCI DSS compliant certified

Xinja just got certified PCI DSS compliant! The PCI DSS compliance refers to the technical and operational standards that businesses must follow to secure and protect your credit and payment card data. These standards for compliance are developed and managed by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council.

It is a huge milestone for us and, if you ever got through such a certification process, you would know how challenging it is!

To mark the event, we published a short article on how we designed our environments to get compliance. So read more about it below:

DevSecOps role @ Xinja

Another great new security-related role we are recruiting for at Xinja: we are looking for a DevSecOps engineer with a focus on security automation. You’ll be embedded in the DevOps team to facilitate continuous delivery of secure, quality software to the Xinja Banking Platform using DevSecOps practices and principles. You’ll need to have a broad cross section of skills along with a strong consultative approach.
You’ll work with software engineers and security experts to ensure that the right practices are in place and to take the security lead on automating the path to production to enable deployment of changes with no manual intervention and in a highly secure manner.
We run a small, crack team of DevOps engineers to help us to build out a world class continuous integration and delivery pipeline for the Xinja Banking Platform as we continue to scale at pace. You will ensure security standards are upheld and secure coding practices maintained.
You should know that we do things a little differently at Xinja. You won’t be micromanaged and will have the flexibility to choose the tools you need to get your work done. Along with the team you work with, you’ll be given autonomy on how you design and build DevSecOps processes as long as it stays within the guidance of the Xinja Software Development Lifecycle and Information Security Management System. You should be comfortable with pushing new tools and processes and challenging the norms of secure software development and deployment.
