SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 29, 2016) - Jobvite (www.jobvite.com), the leading recruiting platform for growing companies, today announced a host of new product features and updates designed to address the evolving needs of employers in the increasingly complex and fast-paced world of recruiting. Chief among these updates was the announcement of SOC 2 Certification of the Jobvite Platform. Based on an independent audit of Jobvite's architecture, processes, and controls, SOC 2 represents the highest level of trust and security for cloud-based applications.
Security breaches like last month's DDoS attacks and the Democratic National Committee email hacks exemplify why companies must be able to trust onboarding and applicant tracking systems (ATS) with sensitive data -- especially when it comes to candidates' and employees' personally identifiable information (PII). Yet most cloud companies still rely solely on the security of their hosting partners, like Amazon Web Services, which only secure the physical datacenter and hardware, leaving sensitive PII data vulnerable. With SOC 2 compliance, on the other hand, Jobvite is the first best-of-breed ATS on the market to have achieved application level security. Data is encrypted and protected against malicious traffic (WAFS/IDS), monitored for unauthorized attempts, and securely developed. Jobvite's application, and all of the company's customer data, is now protected by the highest level of security technology and processes available today.
"Since Jobvite was founded in 2006, we've continually adapted to the market and grown with our customers -- particularly the larger ones that demand robust, enterprise-grade features and functionality," said Bill Loller, Chief Product Officer at Jobvite. "Our SOC 2 compliance is one in a suite of new features that we've built for customers who not only demand the best in security and confidentiality, but also require powerful tools to zero in on the right candidates and insights."
In addition to their security upgrade, Jobvite also announced:
Powerful Search That Delivers Exactly What You're Looking For: Today's recruiters must identify the best candidates in record time, but with dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of applications to look through, that's no small task. In fact, a majority of recruiters waste much of their time searching for candidates instead of actually recruiting. Jobvite's enhanced search capability, now based on state-of-the-art Elasticsearch technology, also has a simplified user interface making filtering and finding the right candidate easier and more intuitive than ever before -- increasing hiring velocity.
Glean Recruiting Insights By Exporting Data into Business Intelligence Systems: Recording and analyzing data across departments is critical to overall business operations, but when that information is siloed, finding what you need can be difficult. Jobvite now connects to Domo business intelligence software, allowing employers to integrate their most crucial recruiting metrics with any source of data across the entire organization, and view it all within the Domo platform.

Collaborative Hiring Gets Everyone on the Same Page and Extends the Hiring Team: One of the major bottlenecks in the recruiting process is the lack of communication between the hiring manager and the recruiter. Now, Jobvite Hire helps to solve this issue -- on desktops and mobile devices -- with collaborative features similar to Slack for the whole hiring team. In addition to expanding who can collaborate, Jobvite enables a social media-like feed where you can have conversations around a candidate, provide feedback, and discuss opportunities throughout every stage in the recruiting funnel -- not just at one or two predetermined stopping points -- to keep that conversation flowing while decreasing your time-to-fill.
