Security at Merchants Bank
Our security system includes several layers of security for extra protection. We use a security protocol known as Secure Sockets Layer or SSL. This provides data encryption and ensures the authenticity and integrity of all our online banking system’s components.
We support data encryption at the highest level (128 bits). In addition, our system’s architecture is designed with a double firewall, completely isolating our Web server from any customer information. We also conduct on-going surveillance and monitoring of all login attempts to prevent unauthorized access.
