Security

The most advanced security available today.

Skoodat is powered by Force.com™, which means you gain all of the security benefits provided by salesforce.com. Therefore, the following information is adapted from the Salesforce.com Security Statement.

Security Statement

When you access our site using industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, your information is protected using both server authentication and data encryption, ensuring that your data is safe, secure, and available only to registered Users in your organization. 

Skoodat provides each User in your organization with a unique user name and password that must be entered each time a User logs on. Skoodat issues a session "cookie" only to record encrypted authentication information for the duration of a specific session. The session "cookie" does not include either the username or password of the user. Skoodat does not use "cookies" to store other confidential user and session information, but instead implements more advanced security methods based on dynamic data and encoded session IDs.

In addition, Skoodat services are hosted by salesforce.com in a secure server environment that uses a firewall and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders.
