BestQuote Internet Security Policy

Customer Security


We view the security and protection of user information as a fundamentally important business objective. Our policy is to meet the highest standards to ensure that your personal information is protected. We have had our website security validated by McAfee Secure (view Trusted Site mark on the bottom left). McAfee certifies that our site is free of viruses, malware or phishing; and that the site uses valid encryption methods to secure data.  


We physically secure access to our computers, which are all password protected. Dual-factor verification protection measures are in place to ensure that our systems cannot be compromised through any unapproved password infringement. We use an extended validation secure socket layer (SSL) encryption technology to ensure that the transmittal of your information is protected. Whenever possible, we use a PCI compliant payment gateway application to ensure that your payment information is transmitted over PCI DSS compliant, security-enabled networks to minimize storage issues.


Why PCI DSS? PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. This worldwide security standard was developed by the major credit card companies (the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council) as a guideline for organizations that process card payments to help prevent credit card fraud, cracking and various other security vulnerabilities and threats.


The information that you provide us by interacting with our site is received, stored, used and transmitted to the insurance companies in a secure and controlled environment.


When you request to purchase a policy from a third-party administrator or insurance company by using BestQuote as the broker, we have ensured that the servers which store user information and host our website are firewall and anti-virus protected, as well as regularly scanned and tested for security vulnerabilities. Data is transmitted over the secure payment gateway applications provided directly by the insurance company(s). 


If you have any questions or concerns, we ask that you e-mail us to [email protected].
