Security and Lyve Mobile with Cloud Import

You should always utilize best practices of ensuring encrypted data transfer protocols between Lyve Mobile and your cloud provider. Seagate provides a highly secure data center and network architecture that is built to meet the requirements of most security-sensitive organizations. Third-party agencies also regularly review and test the security of our systems, architecture, and processes. When storing your cloud destination credentials, all your information is transmitted and stored with industry standard encryption and access can only be requested by your device.

However, ensuring your data is protected is a shared responsibility that requires you to follow your organization’s security policies, maintain the sensitivity of your data, and align with applicable laws and regulations.
