We understand the importance of protecting customer information. Our company adheres to regulatory, security, and privacy standards applicable to the tax preparation industry. Our web-based and desktop applications have a proven record of securing information by utilizing a variety of security related technologies including, but not limited to, firewalls, intrusion detection systems, web application firewalls, encryption, access controls, network isolation, auditing systems, data classifications, and data obfuscation. To protect the data as our client enters it in the system, we incorporate the use of SSL encryption facilitated by an Extended Validation SSL Certificate issued by a recognized trusted certificate authority. We utilize security guards, access controls, bio-metrics, man traps, and other security mechanisms to protect physical access to the data-center.
Our information systems maintain PCI compliance which must be renewed annually. Additionally, our systems are routinely subject to automated vulnerability testing purposely exceeding the requirements of PCI compliance. This practice allows quicker identification and remediation of risks to the privacy of taxpayer data. Internal audits are performed continuously throughout the year to ensure compliance with regulatory standards and our company Information Security Policy Manual.
