Application security is often the first line of defense when it comes to Cyber-Security, and Teqtivity, from the ground up, has gone to great lengths employing our hosted data center on the back of Amazon Web Services (AWS). The AWS platform is known for its superior security methods with companies around the world. See: AWS Security Whitepaper.
In our approach to application development, Teqtivity, takes a multilayered approach to application security, to ensure deployment, including architecture and quality assurance processes complies with the best practices in regards to security. Emerging Cyber-Security best practices increasingly revolve around a more comprehensive and holistic framework. Teqtivity has taken a critical proactive and nuanced approach that incorporates multilayered security, cyber-security intelligence, development methodologies, advanced analytics, and user education and training in its efforts to create a secure environment for its customers.
