Security

Given the high volume of traffic and market penetration of MindGeek properties, it is in our best interest to protect our assets and our customers.

MindGeek has adopted a proactive approach to security, implementing rigorous procedures, standards, and policies beginning with a dedicated security team composed of seasoned hackers and analysts working around the clock to monitor and protect our properties as well as customer information.

We go the extra mile to ensure the protection of customer information by following rigorous industry and government standards. This multi-layer approach is invisible to our customers and has no impact on the speed or user experience of a MindGeek site. We take great pride in being a market leader with respect to security implementation and development.

We execute recurrent security assessments, attack simulations and penetration testing.

We test all MindGeek systems to identify potential security risks before they can be exploited. We also employ numerous means to monitor both our properties as well as the information they contain.

Data Analysis

Every action taken by a user on a Web property generates dozens of data points.

When carefully analyzed, these data points reveal important information about products and the way they are used by clients. Whether it is to track the popularity of a Web page, to calculate an ad location’s effectiveness, or to detect errors, it is critical to collect this data and present it in a way that can be readily interpreted in order to drive better business decisions.

Gathering, storing, processing and analyzing billions of data points a day is a colossal challenge that MindGeek Engineering embraces. It takes a careful combination of internally developed solutions, open source technologies and enterprise software to handle this vast amount of information and its exponential year over year growth. MindGeek data scientists have developed sophisticated machine learning algorithms to mine the data and extract the meaning from the noise.
