Security and stability
We value the trust you have placed in us by building your business applications based on our TeamDesk platform.
Your data protection is extremely important to us. It is ForeSoft's policy to maintain confidentiality over your information.

Our customers' data resides on servers that are heavily guarded both physically and electronically.

Physical security:
TeamDesk is hosted on highly reliable, secure and redundant DELL PowerEdge servers, located in the Steadfast Networks colocation facility data center at 350 E Cermak Road, Chicago - the largest data center in the Midwest, one of the largest in the world, at over 1 million square feet.

350 E Cermak provides Tier III standards with complete 2N power redundancy; it's also the most well-connected building in the Midwest, with over 100 available networks.

The data center offers complete redundancy in power, HVAC, network connectivity, and security. The datacenter facility sits atop multiple power grids driven by ComEd, with full UPS battery backup power and diesel generators onsite. Our network is supplied by several separate networks including, Level(3), Savvis and AT&T. Dozens more third party backbone providers are available in the building via cross connect, such as MCI, Global Crossing, Abovenet, Qwest, XO Communication, Sprint, Williams, and Cogent.

The fiber provided to the Chicago data centers is also provided over redundant paths, with diverse entry points and building riser. These data center facilities have been built to meet the high demands and reliability of telecommunications providers and Fortune 500 companies and have achieved SAS70 / SSAE16 compliance:

Our Steadfast colocation facility provides TeamDesk with a world-class datacenter secure infrastructure that works as an integral part of TeamDesk customers' comprehensive HIPAA plan:

Chicago also has an extremely low occurrence of natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and earthquakes compared to most of the rest of the United States, meaning there is a reduced risk of outages due to natural disasters.
