Because ProjectTalk is a web based project management solution, for security purposes and to ensure that ProjectTalk remains available to all users, we employ multiple software and hardware solutions to monitor network traffic and identify unauthorized attempts to modify data or otherwise inflict damage.
ProjectTalk’s Project Management and Collaboration applications provide a comprehensive integrated security system that enables administrators to customize data access permissions according to their business roles. Using a built-in Security Manager, Administrators can create security profiles that not only limit access to project portfolios and specific features, but also permit viewing of records based on data types and/or values. The ability to grant access to records based on their contents advances database security beyond that offered by many of today's most powerful database management systems, and puts users in control of their information.
All personal and transactional information is transmitted using secure links (Secure Socket Layer or SSL encryption). As noted above, our servers and databases are protected by firewalls and secure access.
