Help desk security overview


Ban IPs

IP (Internet protocol) address is a unique number that is associated with a specific computer or a network. LiveAgent offers a feature where your company/customer staff can ban certain IP addresses. Why would your customer agents want to ban a certain IP? Your customer staff can encounter certain customers/people that might be wasting your agents’ time by repeating inquiries, or that just have irrelevant/inappropriate inquiries. Make your customer representatives work efficiently and ban certain IPs in LiveAgent.

2-step verification

Help desk security - 2-Step Verification

LiveAgent wants to provide our customers with the best possible safety when it comes to entering their LiveAgent account. 2-step verification is an optional way to prevent any unwanted entry. So, how does it work? Whenever you or your customer agents log in, there will be a 2-step verification process. Basically, you will enter a generated code from your smartphone. This ensures a secure login. You will use a Google Authenticator app to generate this 6-digit code. Enable the 2-step verification and make sure your LiveAgent account is safe!

HTTPS Encryption

Help desk security - HTTPS Encryption

HTTPS is Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure which is an extension of HTTP. LiveAgent provides HTTPS Encryption which helps you protect any communication/data transferred between your browser and LiveAgent. Therefore, even if someone managed to get into your account, they are not able to encrypt that information, because of the high level of help desk security.

“The Data Center is a building containing many powerful computers and the systems needed to keep them running so that large amounts of data (=computer information) can be dealt with effectively and without interruption.” – Cambridge dictionary

Since we value our customers’ feedback, we try to accommodate customers’ preferences. Therefore, we have multiple data centers, so we can install LiveAgent accounts to the server points that are best for the customers’ location.
