Your transactions are safe. Revere Bank works with cutting-edge technology partners to ensure that our valued customers have the most secure environment. We offer you worry-free Internet banking. You can be completely confident in the following security measures:
Our system ensures that data exchanged between your PC and our computer networks is encrypted with 128-bit encryption—the strongest encryption available. Encryption is accomplished through Secure Sockets Layers (SSL), which utilizes mathematical formulas to “encrypt” or hide information from prying eyes on the Internet. Additionally, if SSL detects that data was added or deleted after you sent it to the bank, the connection will be severed in order to guard against any tampering. The most popular browsers have the SSL security feature included. How can you tell if your browser is secure? Click here.
Our computer system does not connect directly to the Internet. It is isolated from the network via a firewall. A firewall is a combination of software and hardware products that designate parameters, and control and limit the access that outside computers have to banks’ internal networks and databases. You can be secure knowing that our firewall protects your personal information from unauthorized access.
User IDs and passwords are stored on Revere Bank’s computer to ensure that they are isolated from the Internet. This way, the passwords and IDs can never be accessed or downloaded by anyone on the Internet. Additionally, user passwords can vary from eight to 16 characters, which means the chance of randomly guessing a password is less than one in one billion! The system also checks for invalid logins and automatically disallows a user after five invalid attempts. This prohibits hackers from gaining access to our system, thus protecting your accounts.
You are responsible for maintaining one of the most important security measures: your password. When you receive your Revere Bank online banking password, be sure to keep it a secret. Memorize it or write it down and keep it in a safe place. It is not recommended to carry your password in your purse or wallet. Make sure no one watches you enter your password and always close your browser when leaving the computer. Make sure you regularly scan your computer for viruses that could be used to capture password keystrokes. You ultimately hold the key to your password security.
Recently, an additional layer of security and fraud protection has been added to help prevent identity theft. Now when you sign up for Internet banking, you will be required to establish a security image and three security questions. Your security image will help to confirm that the website you are visiting is authentic, and your passcodes will serve as a second layer of security to verify your identity on non-registered computers.
