Data Security

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls. Through a third party, Home Telecom utilizes mechanisms such as intrusion detection systems, intrusion prevention systems, firewalls and encryption to secure information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.

Through a third party, Home Telecom deploys Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) to alert and proactively contain potential threats. Enhanced security visibility and coverage is enabled through added layers of firewall and IDS beyond the network perimeter. Management connections to servers are always authenticated and encrypted via Secure Shell (SSH) when administration access is required for troubleshooting, patch management, and upgrades.

Through a third party, Home Telecom runs automated vulnerability scanning on all perimeter systems to identify potential security risks. Scanning applications are regularly updated to remain current and up to date on important security vulnerabilities. Patches are applied to all relevant systems, unless a compensating control is implemented.

Through a third party, Home Telecom uses a variety of industry-standard security technologies and best practices to help protect information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. All data stored on the third party systems is encrypted following industry standards using the strongest keys and ciphers. All communications with the App are protected with industry standard security protocols.

You control access to your account and, as set forth in the Terms and Conditions of the App, you are obligated to keep your login credentials and passwords secure and protected and maintained as confidential.
