FileAssist: Security You Can Count On
- Independent Security Evaluation- FileAssist has undergone independent, third-party testing to ensure our network and software system is secure. We run daily external vulnerability testing and we have been audited for ISO-27002 compliance. We are currently attaining SOC3 compliance at our data center.
- Three-Tiered Testing- Our security testing and QA process eliminates mistakes, bugs, and other glitches before they can ever affect our customer. From development to release, updates are tested at a minimum of three levels before they reach our systems.
- McAfee Site Advisor- Daily scans and continuous, automated, independent vulnerability assessments insure there are no holes in the FileAssist system.
- Anti-Virus Software- By monitoring all incoming files, we are able to quarantine viruses that are accidentally or maliciously uploaded by users, preventing data infection.
- 128/256-bit SSL Encryption - Standard with every account, encrypted Trustwave SSL login authentication and 2048-bit private key Trustwave Root Certificates safeguard file transfers via our website and mobile applications so that data cannot be intercepted.
