In a world where we are constantly uploading and transferring our data online, it is natural to worry about the security of our information. This concern becomes more pressing in regards to business goods: how can we be sure that the confidential electronic statistics, documents, facts, and figures of a company are protected?
Time tracking software is designed to accurately record time on tasks, and is used by companies, freelancers, and contractors. The data gathered allows for exact payment for a service, and automates accounts receivables, reports, and scheduling information. Analyzing this information allows the user to readjust the labour and enhance performance of the company and services. The software holds and distributes this data for your business, therefore you want to to know that it is being safeguarded.
Just how secure is time tracking software?
At eBillity, your security has been on our minds since our conception, and we back up your confidential information in a myriad of ways. Below outlines a variety of steps taken by eBillity to safeguard your data.
Amazon EC2 was chosen for our hosting needs. This is a platform for object storage to accumulate and retrieve information–in any amount and from anywhere. It is used by market leaders in every industry, and its statistics (including the fact that it delivers 99.999999999% durability) made it an obvious choice to partner with to keep your data secure. Its benefits include easy and flexible data transfer, backup and recovery via a highly durable and secure destination to backup and archive your data, and the extensive support of use by partners, including tens of thousands of businesses and associates.
Firewall Security our entire application, including your data, is monitored and controlled by network security that establishes barriers for your protection. You can be confident that your company information is secure, as it is monitored 24 hours a day by security specialists.
Regular Information Backup Working with two different independent services allows us to ensure that your data is backed up every single night. Each individual backup is stored in a separate location, so that your information will be safeguarded in the event of a complication, allowing for easy restoration of your files.
Intrusion Analysis The devices and applications designed to monitor systems and networks for violations or malicious activity, used for intrusion analysis, complement firewalls already put into place. Any strange behaviour picked up by the analysis is reported to an administrator and signals an alarm. This is another form of a firewall, which signals for help once it has already identified a potential intrusion which has taken place, whereas a traditional firewall looks outwardly for intrusions in order to stop them before they happen. By combining these methods with human intrusion detection services, we are able to constantly monitor our systems, adding an extra layer of safety to your data.
Private Credit Card & Banking Information Be confident that the banking and credit card details of your clients are completely protected. Neither yourself nor eBillity is privy to this sensitive information, as it goes straight through the financial institutions themselves. The data is collected and stored exclusively with them, taking the responsibility off you and your company. We store all banking and credit information with Stripe.
Security Patching Patches are designed to fix security vulnerabilities in software, and are used to improve and update data. Application of a change to an asset corrects the weakness by any vulnerability present in the software, and will prevent further exploitation or threat. Security patches are critical to ensure your business is not affected by violations, and we take these potential hazards seriously by applying patches as required to further the security of your data.
SSL Security Information sent to and from our servers is encrypted with 256-bit encryption. These collaborate to establish an encrypted connection, which means a secure link between a server and a client, so that sensitive information such as financial details and passwords can be transmitted safely. Look for the internet lock at the bottom right corner of your browser; this means that the website you are using is encrypting your submitted data. It also means that the information sent to the server is scrambled many times over, so that a potential hacker cannot decipher and intercept the data. eBillity relies on Amazon for its SSL Certificate needs, which is the second largest and fastest growing SSL provider on the market.
Network Security The eBillity network is 100% powered by Cisco. It is also five times redundant, which means it is put through a process in which additional network devices and communication methods are installed into the infrastructure to ensure network availability in the instance of path failure or unavailability. Our network also has its own preliminary Intrusion Detection System, or IDS, for detecting vulnerability exploits.
With all of these features collaborating to offer our customers (and yours) the highest level of security, you can be assured that your private and public data will be safe with us. Your customers’ banking and credit card information will be safeguarded, ensuring systems they will feel confident to reuse, which will establish returning contracts for your business. You can be assured that our backup and data recovery systems are efficient and that your data will constantly be monitored and controlled by our specialists. In addition to all of these defences, our firewalls and intrusion analysis make the transfer of your sensitive information unassailable.
