What Level of Data Security Does LeanKit Provide?

We take data security very, very seriously. LeanKit utilizes some of the most advanced technology for Internet security available today. When you access our site using industry standard Transport Layer Security  (TLS) 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. Your data will be completely inaccessible to other LeanKit member organizations.

LeanKit provides each User in your organization with a unique username and password that must be entered each time a User logs on. LeanKit 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. LeanKit 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, LeanKit is hosted in a secure server environment that uses a firewall and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. All system components run on servers dedicated to LeanKit. Our facilities offer state of the art physical and technology security measures. Only authorized personnel are provided physical access to the facilities.
