Data always protected

Contrary to what some people think, data security on the cloud is higher than data stored locally on company servers. We use a multi-level security system for the infrastructures responsible for hosting the data of the client companies that protects their integrity. Furthermore, every day a security copy of the data is created as a further guarantee against the risk of being deleted or lost.
