Every day, we see or hear about someone who has been a victim of identity theft.  It often happens when confidential information is electronically transmitted through an unsecure email connection.  Because this is a growing problem, we felt that we had to take steps to protect you and our own business from this kind of unnecessary risk and worry.

After much research, we are pleased to announce that we have integrated a sophisticated and powerful security software solution here in our office.  All information electronically transmitted in or out is fully covered by the highest level of security protection available on the market.  Data is kept fully secured and confidential.

We chose Shugo, known for the extent to which they safeguard data in a simple, almost invisible manner, specifically designed for small to medium-sized businesses.  Shugo is certified as McAfee Secure, and is used by businesses around the country to comply with the increasing number of state regulations intended to ensure all payroll, business records and other sensitive data are carefully protected.

It also gave us peace of mind knowing that they had over 10,000 companies already using this.

Because security breaches and identity theft are not the kinds of threats that go away all by themselves, we also wanted to share it with you as something to think about for your company.  When you add Shugo to your files, you will have a simple and secure way to send, receive and even store your emails, payroll, tax and business information to prevent potential breaches.  It does not take any technical know-how on your end to add to your system.

Call (704) 921-2730 or send an email to payroll@directpaypayroll.com if we can answer any questions you might have about how we utilize Shugo. We can also help you get this set up, and it will just take a few minutes.
