Where possible, Direct One encrypts information stored on Direct One’s computers as a further measure of protection. Direct One uses high industry standards in the acquisition and deployment of firewalls and other security technology to prevent Direct One computers from being accessed by unauthorized persons.

    Access by Our Employees
