We use TeamViewer, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, GoToMeeting, Webex. This allows you to maintain full control. If we need to do more work, then VPN and RDP work the best. 

We realize that a single security or data problem could ruin our business and reputation. Therefore we treat security with top priority. Below are a couple of things we do to ensure client data is always protected:

  1. We use bank-level security on top of the security you already have in place. 
  2. All of our agreements include Non-Disclosure (NDA) clauses to give you legal protection. 
  3. We carry high levels of insurance. 
  4. We have numerous operational procedures to keep your data safe. 
  5. Our DBAs are highly segregated to who they have access to - they don’t have access to all of the clients Red9 manages, only the ones they work with. 
  6. Our DBAs have a minimum of 15 years of experience and manage various data: financial, healthcare, manufacturing, HR, accounting, e-commerce, etc. 
  7. We treat your data and security as the top priority.
  1. We use bank-level security. On top of what you already have.
