Security Evaluation for MerusCase
Connections made to the MerusCase system use SSL secure encryption that is military-grade 256-bit. Sensitive data in the database that is stored on the servers is also encrypted. There is a selection of the sensitive data that is encrypted. Not all of the stored data is encrypted, only the sensitive portions. This may be problematic for some firms. It is actually better for security if all of the data that is stored is encrypted rather than only the selection of sensitive data from certain database fields.
MerusCase is Suitable for these Law Firms
