Brand Regard utilizes some of the most advanced technology for Internet security available today. When you log in to your site, your password is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology which means that your password is protected by both client-side encryption and server authentication. This ensures your data is safe and that only authorised users can log into Brand Regard to view your assets.
Furthermore, we encrypt our users' passwords before we store them in our database, so even if someone were to hack into our servers, they would not be able to access our users' passwords.
All billing information is encrypted using the same level of encryption as banks use. Brand Regard is PCI compliant and credit card information only ever passes through secure PCI compliant servers.
Only authorised users can log in to a client's Brand Regard account. The data itself, i.e. the marketing and branding assets, are stored on servers hosted by Amazon, which keeps its servers at distributed, nondescript locations with strict physical access control. The data is backed up every 24 hours to prevent data loss. Amazon's cloud services are highly secure and reliable and are used by blue chip companies such as The New York Times and the NASDAQ stock exchange.
We provide access to this data with a technology Amazon provides. Authenticated users are given access to assets via URLs generated by Amazon, which is only valid for a given time. This means that if someone finds a URL sent via email or instant messaging to share assets, these URLs won't work anymore because access to them has expired.
