Encrypted Document Exchange
Fax protocol has inherent security features that make it an attractive means to transmit documents. We add to this by utilizing encryption technology whenever documents are transported to/from our network.
At Rest Encryption
All sensitive data is encrypted at rest. This means it cannot be accessed in any usable form outside of our secure web portal.
Secure Socket Layer Protocol
Our web interface and API access is accessible only through secure HTTPS connections.
All document transmissions and log on/log off events are logged and recorded along with associated IP addresses.
All system access points require user authentication to access any secure data. We also implement auto-logoff features for additional protection. The system includes advanced administrative controls with customizable user permissions and roles.
