Within nivio, you’re actively protected against viruses, malware, and security breaches. We use an array of security systems including encryption, firewalls, and big burly security guards to keep you and your information safe.
Hold on to your hats, we’re about to get technical.
nivio uses on-the-move-data encryption, meaning, we’re protecting your data and information when you’re logged in to nivio, syncing data. That data synchronization is done exclusively over secure channels using controlled system administrator accounts and passive storage pods so not only is your data safe, it’s also mirrored in case of corruption.
Because we’re never satisfied, we conduct regular penetration tests to make sure we’re proactively protecting against known and emerging threats. We have state-of-the-art intrusion detection and firewalling on all systems.
Beyond your data, we protect your online privacy: all information transactions are fed through a PCI-compliant gateway.
Here’s where the security guards come in – our servers are in secure locations in the United States (with Rackspace and Amazon) where they are physically protected by top-of-the-line security. Additionally, both Rackspace and Amazon are regularly audited for (and pass) SAS 70 compliance.
Norton’s giving me warnings, are you sure you’re safe?
If you’re installing nivio on a Windows-based computer with the most recent Symantec Norton versions, you may receive security alerts. We promise, we’re 100% safe and legit. nivio’s still a pretty new service and we’re in the midst of getting Symantec’s stamp of approval.
