2 Updates For The Day 🙂
1.) Most of the time today in finance was spend in clearing old pending withdrawls before 28th…
90 % of it is cleared and if yours is still pending then its either becuase your account reached the daily limit or your account details were wrong
2.) I got the latest update from our tech head and I am just copy/pasting his email to you so you exactly know what’s going behind the scenes
The Hack was un-expected (well… it always is :P) and exposed an entirely new paradigm of vulnerability to us. We understood that we were not just supposed to harden (increase security) our code and servers but also have to extend extra cautiousness towards the fact that there are third party tools like payment processors, etc.; integrated to our system that might be exploited.
This realisation forced us to stop all the ongoing development and put all our energy on hardening and optimising our code for third party integrations.
Currently we are in the process of reviewing the entire code once again and fixing/optimising/rebuilding anything and everything that deals with a third party application.
Apart from that, we had no plans to implement strict KYC in the first year of operations and hence there were no developments on that front.
This hack event forced us to take implement this feature immediately. We had started the development from the scratch and now we are on the verge of completing the KYC module.
It was supposed to be live in this week but its taking a bit longer than expected and should be live anytime in the first half of next week.
It took us a while to develop this feature because at Click Intensity we just don’t do anything for sake of doing it. We follow global coding standards and ethical practices, hence we had to ensure that any document that our affiliates would upload, should be encrypted right from their browser windows till our databases and further.
A lot of similar high standard practices were in place while developing this feature, so as to keep your personal data safe.
Another dimension of KYC is human efforts.
We understood that there will be a HUGE flow of KYC requests, as soon as we go live with it. After all, we more than a 111,000 affiliates today 🙂
It requires a lot of human efforts for verification of documents images and cross verification with government authorities as per the country of residence of the respective affiliates.
We had to recruit heaps of reps and train them for the entire process, which involved training on ethical KYC practices, Data security, Communications with Government Authorities, banking norms for KYC, and what not…
Its a herculean task and you must be expecting it to take another 4 weeks to complete
BUT Our super awesome core team has unbelievably executed it all by headhunting the best professionals, who already knew the process and at the same time structured the entire process in the way that all the fresh recruits would process most of the tough jobs and these professionals would just supervise to achieve the desired perfection !
I would still request you to be patient after uploading your KYC details once the feature goes live, coz we’ll have a whooping 111,000 applications to process.
Just to give you an idea, it takes healthy 5 minutes to complete just documentary verification as if flows through multiple digital signatures of KYC Verification and Finance department.
Leave apart the verification process that involves local Governments and authorities.
Rest-assured, we’ll do our best to complete it as fast as possible.
So, this was what kept us from launching our gold product ‘Facebook Share’, which was scheduled to be live last week.
Once things start settling and we get back on scheduled development, you’ll start witnessing
Anyhow, we are back on track and with hell more SOLIDARITY.
Long Live ClickIntensity !!!
