Project/Data Security and IP Protection

The Security and IP Protection of your project is of utmost importance to us. At Tech Malabaricus, we take adequate measures (in terms of physical security, data security, etc.) to provide a secured development environment. We consider project & data Security and IP Protection as a critical element for maintaining a long-term relationship with our clients. We are committed to protect the client IP throughout the project execution cycle. To ensure the security and Security and IP Protection of information, a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is executed with each client and all private information is respected. Our NDA clearly explains: What type of information/data will be collected from client? Purpose of collecting the information/data How it will be used What measures will be taken to ensure security? With whom it may be disclosed / shared – for legal and security issues, etc. Levels of Risk (data loss, unauthorized alteration, etc.)
