Mobivate Security and Encryption

Two areas where data security needs to be assessed

Database Servers

Access to our database servers is secured using network Access Control Lists (ACLs) which only allow access from our application server.

Access to our application servers is double layered - a VPN connection is required to access the internal network, and servers are accessible using 1024bit public/private key encryption. We are always improving security and always use best servers on the market.

A company you can trust

On 1 July 2015 we celebrated our 11th year of business and we have NEVER (not once) had any issues with security, data integrity, technical or server security breaches. We have clients like Dominos, Mercedes Benz, Kitty Bingo, top pay day lenders etc. We have access to all of their data but it is 100% secure and will never be shared with anyone. Ever!

We offer support 24 hours a day 7 days a week. If you have any questions or need any help do not hesitate to contact us. Our expert software engineers are here to help you every step of the way. We will even write the code for you and assist you with your very own scripting.
