SECURITY AND OPERATION OF INFOSYSTA
At INFOSYSTA we value security as much as you do and we monitor our performance around the clock and in the case of any problems, we are ready to act upon them immediately. Your data is always private and protected. At INFOSYSTA we use advanced, industry-recognized security measures to ensure that your financial data will be kept private and protected at all times.
Every 24 hours we backup your data and later store it in another physical site. This means that with INFOSYSTA, automatic offsite storage is enabled without the need for you to generate and handle physical backups by yourself. Furthermore, if your hardware is ever damaged, all of your data in our system will still be safe - you only need a computer that is connected to the Internet to access it.
We value security as much as you do
Privacy is an integral part of everything we do at INFOSYSTA. Privacy isn't an afterthought or corporate rhetoric – it is how we conduct our business every single day. That is why we follow a strict set of guidelines in order to keep all of your private information safe. Of course, this means that we will never sell, rent or share your private information with third parties without your consent. At INFOSYSTA, we prioritize the security of your data, and we can prove it. INFOSYSTA complies with the most up to date IT management and security policies, meaning that our actions adhere to best practices in the industry.
Available when you need it - anytime, anywhere
With INFOSYSTA you are guaranteed 99.9% availability, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We make this possible by having redundant facilities and servers in place at all times. This ensures that if one location or server somehow becomes unavailable, your INFOSYSTA service experience will be minimally affected or, most often, not at all.
Furthermore, we constantly expand our server facilities in order to keep up with customer growth, which makes it possible for our system to always be ready to handle the increasing number of users.
