Company and customer data protection:
Data protection is important to us. We use a proprietary PBX switch that is on-site in our equipment room, not a web based program where your data is at risk. Our local computers are also protected by a state of the art firewall and anti-virus suite. As far as how client’s data is stored and secured in our vendor based switched is a proprietary.
