Our primary data center is a SSAE 16 SOC II Certified; PCI, HIPPA audited; NEBS Standard Compliant; Telecom-Class data center. Employee access requires both a badge and a fingerprint scan.
Data Encryption Standards
All sensitive data which leaves the facility over the internet must be encrypted using at least 128 bit encryption (256 bit encryption is preferred). All SSL web servers must be configured to attempt 256 bit encryption, fail to 128 bit encryption, and deny access if at least 128 bit encryption is not available.
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of online transactions.
General Website Security Measures
To be able to create an SSL connection a web server requires an SSL Certificate. The web server then creates two cryptographic keys - a Private Key and a Public Key. You can easily see if SSL connections are in place by a website you are on by the lock icon located in the browser (generally placed near the web address bar, but sometimes elsewhere) which ensures that SSL Certificates have been obtained and SSL connections are active.
