Devensoft, through its partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), supports a vast array of compliance programs. With many global public companies on our M&A platform, Devensoft adheres to the highest security and data protection standards available in the cloud.
The following security and compliance programs are included as part of the Devensoft / AWS environment.
Your Privacy & Data Security
Securing our customers' data is a top priority for us. Our software is accessed by companies around the world representing multiple industries, including banking, healthcare, financial services, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, technology, and more. We have been vetted and approved by our customers to store their confidential / restricted data.
We know customers care deeply about privacy and data security. That’s why we implement responsible and sophisticated technical and physical controls designed to prevent unauthorized access to or disclosure of customer content.
Customers manage access to their application instance and content. We provide an advanced set of data access and logging features to help you do this effectively. We support both user and role based permissions.
We provide strong encryption for content in transit using SSL and at rest using AES 256-bit encryption.
All data at rest is secured using disk-level encryption. All data that is backed up is equally encrypted.
The application logs all logins and data changes at a data field-level by user. A comprehensive Audit Report can be run by the customer at any time.
Our primary hosting region is in the US East (Northern Virginia). However, customers may elect a different region to process and store their data based on their legal and regulatory requirements.
Ownership of customer data
You maintain ownership of your data at all times. You can export and import your data at any time.
Single sign on & MFA
We support SSO for Active Directory, PingID and other identity providers and Multi Factor Authentication.
Intrusion detection / anti-malware
We use state-of-the-art security software that provides intrusion detection and prevention, anti-malware, file and system integrity monitoring, and log inspection.
Security Assurance Programs
Service Organization Control (SOC) Reports are independent third-party examination reports that demonstrate how AWS achieves key compliance controls and objectives. The purpose of these reports is to help you and your auditors understand the AWS controls established to support operations and compliance.
The SOC 2 Security & Availability and SOC 3 Security Reports are prepared in accordance with Attestation Standard Section 101 (AT 101) which is a standard that enables an auditor to report on subject matter other than financial statements based on the AICPA Guide Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization Relevant to Security Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, or Privacy and Trust Services Principles and Criteria.
Devensoft maintains an active Information Security Management System (ISMS) aligned with ISO 27001. ISO 27001 is an international security management standard that specifies security management best practices and comprehensive security controls following the ISO 27002 best practice guidance. This is a widely-recognized international security standard in which our customers showed significant interest.
The EU Data Protection Directive refers to the Directive on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (also known as Directive 95/46/EC). Broadly, this Directive sets out a number of data protection requirements, which apply when personal data is being processed.
Devensoft customers can choose to use one region, all regions or any combination of regions where their data will be stored. This allows customers with specific geographic requirements to establish environments in a location(s) of their choice.
EU-US Privacy Shield
Devensoft is in the process of self-certifying to the Privacy Shield Principles. The EU-US Privacy Shield Framework is designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce.
Cloud Security Alliance
Devensoft and AWS participate in the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). CSA is the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment. CSA harnesses the subject matter expertise of industry practitioners, associations, governments, and its corporate and individual members to offer cloud security-specific research, education, certification, events and products. CSA’s activities, knowledge and extensive network benefit the entire community impacted by cloud — from providers and customers, to governments, entrepreneurs and the assurance industry — and provide a forum through which diverse parties can work together to create and maintain a trusted cloud ecosystem.
