Your Data is Secure: WebFilings Completes Audit
March 10, 2011
Since the earliest days of our company, WebFilings has placed the highest priority on keeping customer data safe. We recognized that our customers’ documents contained highly sensitive information. We needed to not just meet, but exceed, their security and compliance requirements. Information security was built into the culture of WebFilings from the beginning. Our development team built a platform and solutions with information security at the core of their architecture. Our Customer Success and IT teams took extreme care to establish processes and facility plans that take our security mantra through to the physical and procedural realm as well. As our company has grown, we have successfully completed security reviews with hundreds of companies. During these reviews we diligently answered questions, opened our doors to site visits, and completed detailed technical and security questionnaires. Our fast-growing customer base, which includes many Fortune 100 companies, trusts us to safeguard their data. We take that trust very seriously. Over a year ago, we began the process of engaging an independent firm to audit our systems, processes and procedures. Today, we are pleased to announce that WebFilings has successfully completed its initial SAS 70 Type II audit. The SAS 70 Type II audit is the preferred and widely recognized standard that establishes that WebFilings employs uniform and reliable operational controls and safeguards as a host and processor of customer information. The report generated from this audit is effectively a ‘seal of approval’ on the procedures and processes supporting our technology platform, our business processes, and on our physical operations. Information security is deeply embedded in the culture of our company. We’re proud to include a successful SAS 70 Type II audit report as a validation of that commitment. Our customers can rest assured that their data is safe and secure with WebFilings. You can read more about it in our press release.
