QuickBase is built on the Intuit heritage of providing leading Web applications such as TurboTax, QuickBooks Online Edition and QuickenOnline.com. Thanks to this experience, we stand confidently behind the security, reliability, and confidentiality of QuickBase. It's also the reason why Intuit was named one of TRUSTe's most trusted companies of 2007 for privacy.

Permissions That You Control
When you create a database with QuickBase, only the people whom you explicitly invite can actually use it. This means you have complete control over who can view, modify, or add information to your database. In addition, you can limit access to select information within your database through field-level permissions.
Security Over the Internet
QuickBase employs industry-standard, 128-bit Secure Socket Layers (SSL) protocol to ensure your information is neither intercepted nor corrupted during transmission over the Internet. In addition, QuickBase uses encryption technology to help protect your data when stored on disk.
What Makes QuickBase Reliable?
QuickBase is not a "dot-com," with a "here today, gone tomorrow" business model. We're a member of the Intuit family of products and services, representing more than $2 billion in annual sales and more than 25 million customers. It's through these resources that we can make investments in systems and information reliability.
In fact, our data center is the same facility that handles millions of tax returns via TurboTax for the Web each year. To assure continued service, data integrity, and customer confidence, we've outfitted this data center with:
- thoroughly tested intrusion detection software and hardware to stop unauthorized access attempts and other suspicious activity
- the most advanced firewall software available to prevent "spoofing"
- daily back-ups of all information stored with QuickBase to prevent data loss
- 24x7x365 security, including trained personnel, video surveillance, and alarms, to prevent physical breaches
- uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and multiple back-up generators in case of power outage
- smoke detection and fire suppression systems
In case of natural disaster, we have a second and separate data center that redundantly protects and stores all customer information and assets.
What Makes QuickBase Confidential?
Over the years, Intuit has adopted strict guidelines and practices so that your private information stays that way. Not even QuickBase personnel are allowed to access the information contained within your databases without your express permission.
