The NetDocuments service and software was built from the ground up as a proprietary software utilizing a key patent to manage the security and rights to a document by wrapping the contents in a digital envelope. Much like a physical envelope, the wrapped digital object is able to maintain access rights, account information, metadata, and any other information relating to a document at the document level.
NetDocuments currently operates on six regional datacenters located in the US, UK, and Australia. The hardware is owned and managed by NetDocuments and the physical facilities are maintained by leading corporations who specialize in physical security, monitoring, redundancy of power, multi-factor authentication, and separation of duties to ensure the highest level of security and physical datacenter protection.
Documents managed by NetDocuments are treated as digital assets, which you as a customer always own and control. Privacy and encryption are achieved while contents are in transit or at rest through AES-256 and SSL-128 encryption. The NetDocuments service undergoes regular penetration testing and third-party audits allows the service to be SOC 2 (SSAE-16) certified and HIPAA, SEC, and FINRA compliant.
