Security Policy

We take security very seriously. The security of our clients' data is top priority. All servers are configured to provide specific security rules for our clients. Our security team launches regular simulated hacker attacks to continually test the strength of our security procedures. Servers where client data is stored are protected by firewalls with internal and external access rules to prevent both internal and external attacks. We scan all incoming mail for viruses, virus-like activity and check for updated virus definitions nightly. All updates to network anti-virus references are immediately downloaded to employee PCs to protect from Internet downloads that bypass the mail server. The tape backup also scans and cleans the entire network nightly prior to the backup running. We store tape backups offsite.

All the security precautions in the world go out the window when a user's password is 'password'. Our company policy is to enforce strong, hacker-resistant passwords and we regularly launch dictionary attacks (looking for passwords that are made of common words) and brute force attacks (aaaaaaaa, aaaaaaab, aaaaaaac, etc.) trying every combination of letters and numbers until a match is found. If an employee's password is cracked, that user account is suspended immediately, until the password is changed.

Our clients can feel safe that all available measures are being taken to protect their valuable data.
