To access a database on our Hosted Server, there are two layers of authentication.
Firstly, you login to one of our Hosted Windows Servers via your own private account. This connection is encrypted using Kerberos or TLS (aka SSL) for authentication, which according to Microsoft is “stronger encryption than your browser uses when communicating with your bank”.
Secondly, once connected to your private Hosted Account, you then still have to login to your ClinicOffice database with your own username/password combination.
Furthermore, your data is stored in an encrypted format, with the additional option to enable 2 factor authentication via SMS or a mobile app. In other words… your data is very secure.
For further peace of mind, we are also registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office on the Data Protection Register as a “data handler” which means that we comply with all their requirements for handling sensitive data.
