DocuSign officials said that they won this certification after observing a rigorous implementation and ongoing improvement lifecycle. The company also followed stringent set of rules and security management requirements which are considered the most effective by industry, academic, and security professionals.
The ISO 27001 includes 133 control standards and associated activities that has come out of more than a decade of collective practice and review first in the U.K., and then as a formal global consortium effort and international certification standard.
Joan Ross, chief security officer at DocuSign said that their company is proud to have received the very significant ISO/IEC 27001 certification from the British Standards Institute.
“Achieving ISO/IEC 27001 certification further illustrates our unwavering company commitment to security and reinforces why more global enterprises, business departments, and individual professionals trust their signature to DocuSign than all other cloud-based eSignature providers combined. Customers utilizing DocuSign to achieve business results are leveraging a service globally certified to the highest standards as an information security management system inclusive of our electronic signature service, full scope of enterprise processes, and datacenter procedures,” Ross added.
This new certification enables DocuSign to join a prestigious group of organizations, including Amazon, Microsoft (News - Alert), and salesforce.com, in the forefront of certifying to this international standard.
DocuSign currently offers fully redundant SSAE 16 tested enterprise and data centers, as well as a network, policies, and procedures that have passed 100 percent of security audits with the world's largest financial services institutions.
The company complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI (News - Alert) DSS), is TRUSTe certified and adheres to the U.S. – E.U. Safe Harbor framework established by the U.S. Department of Commerce.
