Flare software and accounting online security, system security and user privacy very seriously. We make every effort to ensure that your financial and personal data are safe.

Network Security

Flare’s Network / Server infrastructure is designed to meet the highest security standards. Security processes are constantly monitored and evaluated. As security is an ongoing concern, security effectiveness is always re-evaluated for further improvements and refinements. Our processes, practices and policies ensure the safety of our server, Flare cloud accounting software, and the personal and financial data of our customers.


Flare employs DIGICERT’s Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates. Not only does EV SSL provide the highest level of authentication but was specifically created to boost and maintain consumer confidence of online services and ecommerce through rigorous certificate owner verification. All data transferred between Flare users and the service is encrypted in the same manner as Internet banking.

User Access

Flare provides extensive secured-roll and user-based collaboration. Only you control the assignment and invitation of Flare collaborators. Even during customer support, Flare staff will have limited read only access.

User Passwords

Flare requires users to choose a strong password based on the industry standards.

Users are automatic locked out when incorrect passwords are repeatedly entered. We don’t allow the browser to save your login credentials, which eliminates access from a stolen, compromised or unattended computer. If you leave your computer unattended for an extended period, you will be automatically logged out.

Physical Security

Our servers are located within Peer-1 Tier-4, enterprise grade hosting facilities. Access is restricted to authorized Peer-1 staff by a combination of biometric systems and 24/7 on-site security, and is continually audited to meet SOC 1 Type II standards.

Firewall & Network Security

All external access to our servers is controlled by multiple layers of firewalls, intrusion protection systems and routers, which are configured and monitored according to industry best practices.

Third Party Audits and Inspections

Our security is reviewed regularly and audited by external specialists. This includes penetrative testing and automated server port security scanning.

Third Party Access

Transfer of data to any third parties can only occur with your consent. We ensure that third-parties providing a service via Flare (connections to banks, financial institutes, credit card processors for example) have the highest level of data protection for Flare users.

Data Protection and Integrity

We run off-site backups nightly, full backups weekly and transaction log backups of our database every 10 minutes so we can immediately recover your data if necessary.
