Does the Security of Your Workforce Management Software Measure Up?
January 27, 2020
You’ve already heard about the amazing benefits that Schedule360’s workforce management software can bring to the table, but perhaps you are needing a little reassurance that your vital information won’t be jeopardized before you commit.
Schedule360 is a cloud hosted solution that is housed in a secure, state of the art data center. We have extra security measures in place to keep your company’s information secure from any outside interference, as well as protect sensitive data and or patient data through our HIPAA compliant portal.
While security has always been a top priority at Schedule360, we decided to take it one step further by offering a new feature called Identity Access Management. For example, whenever you reset your password, an email is sent to notify you that the password has been changed, and to verify it was you who reset the password. Companies that require the highest level of security, such as banks and company databases, have long been utilizing this type of security feature, and we’re excited to offer it to our Schedule360 clients.
Through Identity Access Management, passwords are encrypted and include a two-step verification step for added security measures. Management can set up passwords to be changed every 30, 60, or 90 days based on their specific security request and processes.
To ensure even more added password protection, it’s important to implement the best practices possible when creating a password:
· Passwords should be a minimum length of 8 characters.
· Passwords should be a maximum length of 14 characters.
· Passwords should include minimum complexity-no dictionary words-and should use a combination of: lowercase, uppercase, numbers, and special characters.
· Don’t use common acronyms as part of your password.
· Don’t use common words or reverse spelling of words in your password.
· Don’t use names of people or places in any part of your password.
· Don’t use part of your login name in your password.
· Don’t use parts of numbers that can easily be linked to you, such as phone numbers, social security numbers, or street addresses.
On top of password encryption and protection, Identity Access Management also provides application security.
Here are the security measures we take to control and secure your data:
