They're built into TeamData from the ground up
TeamData doesn't store your Master Password
Only you know it. Only you have the key to unlock the encrypted data and files in your TeamData account. For extra protection, your Master Password is hashed using bcrypt with salting and stretching.
Important: If you lose your Master Password and need to reset it, you will delete all your encrypted information that is not shared with other team members.
Your sensitive data and all your files are encrypted while stored using 256-bit AES encryption and RSA 2048 asymmetric encryption - the same algorithms relied on by banks, the U.S. military and the U.S. government.
We protect all your information from browser to server with Secure Socket Layer encryption in a configuration that supports forward secrecy on most browsers. Just like with a bank, it prevents eavesdropping when you’re in your TeamData cloud.
Your TeamData cloud lives in Rackspace, a premier hosting provider, which has 24/7 physical and biometric protections, in addition to firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and an array of other technological safeguards. Rackspace holds a number of certifications, including SSAE16 Type II SOC 1, SOC 2 and SOC 3 Reports, is Safe Harbor certified, and is PCI compliant.
We designate data fields as sensitive (i.e., encrypted) for the type of information you'd expect - usernames and passwords, account numbers, ID numbers, financial, health, and much more - largely based on U.S guidelines. All files are also marked sensitive.
Most existing information management solutions have security vulnerabilities built in because their business depends on knowing, using or even monetizing your information, which can open holes from the outset. At Personal, we don’t need to know or use your data and files in any way, so we’ve purposely cut off access to your sensitive data and all your files, which are encrypted even to us.
Personal is the first user-facing online company to be named an ambassador for Privacy by Design. We received this recognition because our technology and business practices put you in control of what you store and share.
Symantec and Verisign scan our sites and applications to verify security. We also have certified "Ethical Hackers" and "Penetration Testers" on staff who constantly monitor for potential threats and vulnerabilities.
You can export all of your data and files from TeamData, and permanently delete all copies from our servers.
