MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - August 14, 2014) - e-SignLive by Silanis, the e-signature choice for business, has set a precedent as the first cloud e-signature solution to complete a Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 attestation. In an audit by EY (Ernst & Young), e-SignLive's data protection technologies and processes were verified as SOC 2 compliant, setting the system and company in the ranks of organizations including Google, Amazon Web Services and Salesforce.
SOC 2 is recognized as a stringent audit program for service organizations to attest to the security of a system. While other attestation engagements such as SSAE 16/ SOC 1 focus on controls over financial reporting, SOC 2 focuses more on technology and measures security controls across a company's technological and operational environments, using criteria around security policies, physical and logical access, system monitoring, encryption, as well as vulnerability management. Having successfully completed this attestation gives e-SignLive by Silanis customers the peace of mind that the e-signature service is secure and protected against unauthorized access thanks to the strictest of controls.
"Meeting top security requirements is a fundamental part of being the e-signature choice for business," said Silanis Technology IT & Security Director, Christian Vezina. "As business transactions move into the cloud, the security of sensitive information required to complete processes like mortgage loan applications, account openings and ammunitions requests is more important than ever," continued Vezina.
This attestation for e-SignLive comes in addition to the numerous security and data protection controls already in place at the data center level through to the company's use of industry leading infrastructure provider, Amazon Web Services (AWS). In fact, AWS has already implemented a comprehensive compliance program to provide customer's assurance about the security of its underlying infrastructure.
"An e-signature solution like e-SignLive achieving SOC 2 attestation demonstrates that Silanis goes above and beyond to ensure the security and integrity of our customers' data," said Vezina. "It's a testament to our commitment to ensuring the highest level of security and legal protection as part of our goal to deliver the best customer experience."
Trusted by some of the most security-conscious organizations in the world, e-SignLive is in use across financial services, insurance and government organizations alike, including eight of the top 20 banks, eight of the top 15 insurance companies in North America, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff and the entire U.S. Army.
