Today’s fast-moving and data-rich world demands that you partner with a website translation provider that understands the importance of security, and works tirelessly to ensure your data is safe and protected at all times.

At MotionPoint, our proxy-based approach to website translation offers enterprise-class security so you can rest assured that your sensitive data—and that of your customers—is always secure.

Here’s how we do it.

Enterprise Security Standards

Since MotionPoint works with leading brands across dozens of industries, our security must exceed their most rigorous demands. To accomplish this, we base our security protocol on five key elements:

  1. Physical Environment: Secure data centers offer unparalleled safety, 24/7/365
  2. Network Defense: Real-time network monitoring and regular assessments offer constant threat assessment
  3. Security Auditing: We meet the most rigorous industry standards including PCI DSS and NIST, as well as HIPPA.
  4. Redundancy and Resilience: Multiple, location-independent data centers and backups for data, telecommunication and power give you peace of mind
  5. Rigorous Standards: We insist on the highest standards of security, compliance and response from all of our providers

Data Protection and Privacy

When you work with MotionPoint, you’re working with the world’s most sophisticated proxy-based translation technology. That means we take the responsibility of handling and passing your data through our servers very seriously.

We use your site’s SSL connection throughout the process of receiving data when a user requests a page, all the way through translation and conversion of that content on our servers, and delivering that page right back to the end user.

MotionPoint also uses special directive tags to specify any areas of your site that we should ignore—from images to text to form data. Anything enclosed in those tags will pass through MotionPoint’s servers completely unrecognized and untouched.

Rigorous Practices and Standards

While MotionPoint technology is expressly built to be seamless, secure and to only handle the data required for translation of a multilingual site, we’re committed to ensuring that the data we do touch is handled with the utmost care.

That includes how we handle:

Data Storage

We never store your customer’s personal information. You control what methods you use to capture personal information (such as transaction data or location information), how and where you store that information, and how you use it to serve your customers.

Data Encryption

When we use our proxy to transmit data to customers on your behalf, we only do so using secure encryption practices to safeguard that data, including Transport Level Security (TLS) and Advance Encryption Standard (AES) ciphers. And we’re always staying on top of the latest encryption technologies.

Secure Development

MotionPoint infuses strict security requirements throughout our development cycle within our development teams, including secure coding practices, code reviews and continuous testing of our integrations and security standards. This includes validation by independent third parties.

Regulatory and Compliance Practices

MotionPoint works with customers across a variety of industries, which requires us to remain current and compliant with a number of regulatory and compliance standards—from HIPPA to ISO to FISMA, FedRamp and more. We’re also deeply versed in the implications of new GDPR legislation.

Security as a Top Priority

We know data security and privacy is a top priority for our customers, so it’s a top priority for us.

From the way we design our software to the way we handle the content from your origin website, MotionPoint puts the safety and protection of your data—and your customers’ data—at the center of our process.

With MotionPoint, you can rest assured that your data and translation is in the very best, and most secure, hands in the industry.
