Using the dinKum client software your data is encrypted using AES 256-bit and transmitted to GPmicro’s servers at a data center. During transmission an additional layer of security is used based on the Secured Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. SSL ensures that the communication between your computer(s) and the remote servers is encrypted. Once in the data center the data is validated while remaining in the encrypted AES format. Transmitted and off-site data is always encrypted.
