Security Measures for Online Scheduling
Any system used by many people and any system through which people provide sensitive information needs state-of-the-art security and the companies that provide online appointment scheduling software solutions are aware of that. These cloud-based applications are often used for making payments as well — one more reason why the providers of such solutions cannot afford to use anything, but the latest security technology. Here is how such online solutions protect the data provided by the parties involved in the scheduling process;
- Using HTTPS — reliable vendors of online scheduling solutions use the secure version of the hypertext transfer protocol, the set of rules used by servers when they transmit files over the worldwide web;
- SOC reports — reputable companies do more than just promise their clients and customers that they are committed to data security and they follow sound protocols to protect their customers as well as their employees — they can also prove that they use the best practices, by providing audit reports issued by independent auditing firms;
- Single Sign-In — SSO support requires very sound security systems and it is among the most advanced security measures to protect customer data. Not all online scheduling companies offer the feature, but the best providers do, so you should look for one that does.
