At 1st Guard, the privacy and security of customer data is as important to us as it is to you. Physical safeguards, procedural controls, and data access controls protect your data from unauthorized access. We continually monitor our systems to prevent unauthorized attempts at intrusion.
1st Guard uses strong, 256-bit encryption and SSL, short for Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol for transmitting private information via the Internet. SSL uses a private key to encrypt data that is transferred over the SSL connection. This protocol is a standard used by many websites when you submit confidential information, such as credit card numbers and other personal data. SSL creates a secure connection between your browser and our server. Addresses of web pages using an SSL connection start with https: instead of http: and most browsers also display an icon of a closed padlock when you visit a page using SSL.
Our customer website, my1stGuard, provides a private and secure environment to access policy and account information. To access my1stGuard, you will need to use a security-enabled web browser, with 256-bit encryption installed, and have valid user credentials.
Note: Our web pages are designed for current versions of Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Firefox. Presentation and layout of our pages is best viewed using these browsers, however many other browsers will also work with our site.
