Azimio is built with security as the core of our philosophy and architecture.

Data Encryption

All administrative interfaces of Azimio (Merchant, Customer & API) can only be accessed over Secure Socket Layer (HTTPS) to ensure maximum security for Azimio merchants, their customers and their data.

Azimio utilizes the SSL protocol to encrypt all data on the servers. Our hosting partner HostGator/ Softlayer provides 99.9% uptime reliable services.

Our database runs on 256-Bit encryption technology (SSL) and is robust, scalable and unbreakable. Our computers containing the software application and your data are housed in secure, world-class professionally run facilities. Access to these facilities is strictly restricted with military grade security protocols.

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) are the industry standards for transmitting private data online. They securely encrypt all the data you exchange and create a secure connection between your customer and your site, ensuring the endpoint authentication and communications privacy that every truly secure Internet exchange demands. Once the SSL link is established, all communication between your website and your customer’s browser remains absolutely confidential.
