Performance and security
Superior performance and speed characteristics allow serving more traders setting for lower requirements on the hardware. Today MetaTrader 5 is one of the fastest, efficient and cost-effective platforms in the world.
MetaTrader 5 is based on a distributed architecture, where different functions are performed on different servers. This removes architectural limits and allows the performance of the software system to be increased by deploying more servers within the platform. By adding servers, you can increase the overall platform performance or reduce the load on its individual components. The scalability of the system provides a perfect solution to the growth problem allowing to keep control over the platform and preserve the highest quality of brokerage services.
The trading platform provides a powerful security system. Data exchange between the system components is performed over an encrypted connection. Built-in advanced authentication systems ensure complete protection to trade accounts. All the system databases are securely encrypted and provided with the backup and recovery options.
In addition, the distributed architecture increases the platform resistance to various hacker attacks. Trade servers can be hidden behind multiple access points which will serve like shells. In case of such attacks, the trade servers will continue to run in a normal mode, while the information stored on them will be absolutely safe.
