SSL – Private Website Encryption

VPN – Secure Remote Access

  • Giva uses 256-bit secure sockets layer (SSL) certificates established on our cloud help desk cloud for any domains on which sensitive information is accessed or displayed.
  • All access to our cloud help desk software requires secure login credentials.
  • With our high availability data center infrastructure, SSL is also installed on the load balancers to ensure end-to-end privacy.
  • All remote access, system administration connections and data transfers to Giva's HIPAA-compliant cloud help desk software for electronic health & medical records are encrypted using an SSL VPN (virtual private network) with dual factor authentication.
  • All data travels across an encrypted VPN using very strong encryption. Giva uses the strongest encryption available from leading security vendors to protect sensitive PHI in electronic health and medical records.
