NetDocuments advances information security management leadership with ISO 27001 certification
NetDocuments, a leading cloud-based document and email management service (DMS), today announced it has received the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27001 Certification confirming NetDocuments meets or exceeds international standards for data privacy, security, and information governance practices.
“Our customer firms are faced with increasing pressure from their global corporate clients for advanced data protection measures, strong encryption, and comprehensive security audits. They rely on us as a specialized vendor to provide them with the highest levels of security, compliance, and audit support,” David Hansen, Director of Compliance at NetDocuments stated. “Achieving ISO 27001 certification helps validate the many security and compliance initiatives NetDocuments has implemented. Our customer firms rely on NetDocuments’ security to help reduce or eliminate their burden of direct security responsibility.”
The ISO 27001 certification comes only weeks after NetDocuments announced its next generation encryption key management technology, including the ability for customer firms to hold and control encryption keys for specific, confidential data. “The ISO Certification is a critical component of our overall security, encryption, and compliance infrastructure across our global datacenters,” Alvin Tedjamulia, NetDocuments CTO commented. “The demand for a modern and intuitive document management system has never been greater, and so are the requirements for privacy, security, and encryption. It’s through this combination of usability, simplicity, and the robust security architecture that we are able to differentiate the NetDocuments’ Service from our on-premises software competitors, and attract firms from the small to the Global 100.”
In May, NetDocuments held an exclusive CIO Summit for customer and prospective firms to address the technology roadmap and the opportunities and challenges firms are facing around security and information governance. Over thirty of the Am Law 100 firms attended to discuss the intersection of security and compliance, with usability, scalability, and mobility relating to the DMS. “The ISO Certification was well received at the CIO Summit and was validated as a crucial component to show our customer firms our focus and commitment on delivering not only the most innovative and intuitive DMS available, but also a service that is more secure and compliant than what they could achieve with an on-premises or hosted system,” explained Matt Duncan, CEO of NetDocuments.
