Security & Privacy

Ministry Tracker holds a lot of confidential information, and since it’s yours, we guard it with sophisticated technology and never share or sell it.

Data Integrity & Security

We work around the clock to ensure your data stays in the right hands. We offer 256-bit SSL encryption, secured firewalls for all servers, regular vulnerabilities scanning by a 3rd party, and more. That may sound like tech jargon (and it is), but it means we take security very seriously.

Backup and Recovery

Better to keep data safe in the first place than to try to restore it. We offer real-time backups to multiple data centers to keep data current and protected. Even in the event of a power failure, our systems keep running on backup generators so we don’t lose your data.
