Security Measures

At National Instruments, we understand the importance of Internet security and privacy. Security for our customers is a top priority. Likewise, we have invested time and resources to ensure that our online security procedures help to safeguard your information. We hope the following explanation of our online security measures help you understand how we are striving to keep our site secure for our online customers.

Site Identification
The National Instruments Online Store ( is registered with Web site identification authorities so your browser can confirm that you are communicating with the authentic National Instruments Online Store. With site identification, your browser can verify that the identity of the site you are communicating with is in fact the National Instruments Online Store before you transmit any sensitive information. Further, your browser notifies you if the potential receiving site for your personal information seems suspicious, so that you can avoid the site before sensitive information is transmitted.

Security-Enabled Browsers
Security-enabled browsers, such as Netscape Navigator/Communicator 4.0 or higher and Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.01 or higher, encrypt all of the information you send to us using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL technology encrypts all sensitive information transferred between you and our site and renders it unreadable to anyone trying to intercept the information.

If you do not feel comfortable giving us your payment information online, we do offer a print and fax option in the Online Store that enables you to print the contents of your shopping cart and fax your order to us.
