How we keep your data secure
From multi-factor authentication to our anti-fraud technology, you can learn more about what we use to protect your data, how it works, and how it benefits you.
We take security seriously.
We safeguard the information you share with us with some of the industry’s best practices. The innovative technology we use helps stop fraudsters in their tracks and ensures only you can access your Account.
We use multi-factor authentication
Anytime you sign in to one of our offerings, we use multi-factor authentication to make sure you’re you. This means we always verify your identity in at least two different ways. For example, we’ll look for things we recognize like your device or where you are when you’re signing in, and maybe ask you to enter a code we send you.
Your stored data gets encrypted
We safeguard your information by encrypting it when it’s stored in our systems. This means we translate your information into a code that only we can read to make sure only you and auditorsDesk have access to your information. The type of encryption we use is called AES-256 (Advanced Encryption Standard with 256-bit keys) and it ensures the highest level of cryptographic security.
We keep a lookout
Not only do we protect the information you share with us, we also proactively search for scams and frauds that might impact our customers. Our security notices have regularly updated information about any fake emails and customer support scams, and tips on what to do if they target you.
Stopping fraudsters in their tracks
Our fraud prevention technology constantly scans our systems. When we identify suspicious activity, we immediately block people who are up to no good before they can get started.
Partnerships to build better security
We participate in established partnerships with multiple security organizations and alliances to help ensure we protect our customers’ data with the best methods out there. We also share our own learnings and recommendations with these organizations so that all online customers, not just our own, can benefit.
Always advancing our security
As technology changes and develops, so do our security practices. We are constantly testing and improving our cybersecurity practices to make sure we’re ahead of the game. This includes collaborating with security researchers around the world to make sure our offerings are as secure as possible.
