Effective security is a full-time job, and our security team works around the clock to protect you from the loss, misuse or unauthorized alteration of your data. We employ state-of-the art technology, management practices and physical security to keep your data safe. (You can enhance the effectiveness of our safeguards by creating passwords that can't be accessed, guessed or reproduced by unauthorized people.)

The focus of our security efforts are to ensure there are no unsecured “back doors” into the application.




The security infrastructure employs a series of gateways, much like secure doorways into the system, that (1) authenticate users attempting to enter the system, and (2) monitor all user activities and whereabouts while within the system.

In addition, the GSM/GPRS protocol employed by wireless networks includes over-the-air encryption/decryption to protect data while in transit. Wireless carriers themselves—in addition to other third party vendors—may provide an added layer of encryption and authentication, as well as wireless data compression for enhanced speed and security.
