iCrederity – Security
iCrederity takes reasonable measures to help secure our service, including:

Data Transmission

Secure Socket Layer SSL high-grade encryption (128 or 256 bit) is used to secure all sensitive data transmissions.


iCrederity servers are protected from intrusion. The actual hardware is hosted in 24/7 secured and power redundant geographically dispersed facilities located in the United States. The servers are protected by both hardware and software firewalls and are McAfee HackerSafe certified.


Where possible, data is stored independently of personally identifiable information. iCrederity also negotiates with verifying authorities to minimize the amount of data required in order to complete a verification and does not unnecessarily retransmit sensitive data once a verification has been completed.

Physical Operations

Operations facilities are secured with physical security and alarm systems, 24/7 surveillance, and biometrically controlled entryways. Personnel are carefully screened, background checked, and bound to confidentiality, and human access to data is limited on a need-to-know basis only.

Security Audits

iCrederity periodically reviews and revises its security practices in order to improve them.

As mentioned previously, our servers are McAfee HackerSafe certified.
