Safeguarding data against malicious activity

CareLineLive employs a multi-layered approach to protect customer data from malicious activities. These include:

  • Web-browser based access such as ours is significantly safer than remote desktop environments which are notoriously insecure as they allow users access to the server’s operating system
  • Strict network and application firewall policies with AI-assisted anomaly detection, to stop and identify any malicious activity
  • Isolated network infrastructure, restricting the ability for worms to propagate
  • Strong encryption used whenever data is transferred (in-transit) or stored (at rest)
  • We have both automated as well as human-managed penetration tests that regularly test the vulnerabilities of the systems
