At Elite Email we are beyond super diligent about security and privacy.
We go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to security because we understand just how precious your information is. Not only do we make sure all your information is secure and kept away from prying eyes, but we also back it up… and then those backups have backups (and those backup have backups, too!).
We truly understand and appreciate the trust you put in us when you upload your data, and the trust we have with you is something we hold very dearly.
Our development team and system engineers are always monitoring our networks, enhancing protocols, and performing updates to ensure that the only person that has access to your data, is YOU.
Why am I mentioning this all of a sudden?
MSNBC, CBC, Security Week and other major news outlets have been reporting the story that Epsilon, an email service provider to some of the largest companies (including 7 of the Fortune 10) that sends over 40 million emails annually, had a massive security breach. Someone gained access to customer names and email addresses for brands such as JPMorgan Chase, Capital One, TiVo, Kroger, Best Buy, Walgreens, Marriott Rewards, and the list continues to grow.
This security breach poses serious problems because it opens up the door for phishing attacks where someone impersonates a legitimate company. Many of the companies affected by this security breach at Epsilon have already sent out emails to their customers warning them about possible spam they may receive in the future now that their data has been disclosed. I applaud the direct and honest messages being sent out by these companies to alert their customers who had trusted them with their data.
Of course, all email service providers, even though competitors, work together to further the email marketing industry, and I am saddened by events like this.
Once again, I want to reiterate that Elite Email has never had a security breach in our entire history. We conduct frequent audits to ensure that everything is safe, secure, and backed-up. From the biggest banks we work with to the smallest mom-and-pop operation, everyone’s data is treated with the utmost case and sensitivity.
