For businesses of all sizes, Internet-based applications are a great alternative to conventional software. When you choose a Web-hosted application from TimeSolv, security is one of the biggest benefits. There are numerous security advantages to using TimeSolv compared to running packaged business application software in-house.
TimeSolv keeps your data in a secure data center facility. Think of it as a bank vault for your information, with 24-hour security personnel, key-card access systems, and strict sign in/out procedures, video surveillance and after-hours motion detectors. Getting into your office’s server is child’s play by comparison.
These same data centers provide tremendous network security to prevent hackers from breaking into the server containing your data, including multiple levels of network software security. Does your company have network security personnel on staff?
All TimeSolv accounts are password protected. TimeSolv uses "trap-door encryption" to protect your password. This means that passwords are subject to one-way encryption only. Your password is encrypted when you first enter it and is saved in encrypted form at TimeSolv. In other words, even we don’t know your password!
Everything is Encrypted
Every time you enter information in one of our applications and send it across the Internet (by choosing Save or pressing Enter), that information is scrambled using 128-bit encryption. Just look for the padlock icon at the bottom of your browser. When you see this you know the page is protected by SSL (refer to Secure Sockets Layer, below).
Limited Employee Access
All TimeSolv employees know customer security is paramount, and every employee signs a customer confidentiality agreement upon being hired. Even so, only a handful of employees have access to your account data, and then only for emergency use.
Limited User Access
Access to TimeSolv applications is not "all or nothing." You can set permission levels for each of your employees, restricting them from client billing, limiting access only to certain projects and more. The same employee can have different levels of access for any number of projects. Your staff sees only what they need to see, and your data stays more secure.
Daily Data Backups
Data security isn’t just measured by keeping others out – it also means that you can get to your information whenever you need it. At TimeSolv, your data is backed up every day at a remote location provided by Amazon.com to keep it safe and available.. When was the last time you backed up your PC?
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
This refers to the padlock that displays at the bottom of your browser window. Any time the lock displays, you know the page is protected by SSL, the same technology Web sites use to protect credit card numbers and other confidential information.
