Because our customers use Signiant technology to move their most valuable assets, we take precautions to secure every layer involved in file movement. Our security technology and implementation regularly undergo extensive third-party reviews to ensure effective protection.
Designing Secure Software
Building secure software requires a strong understanding of both the threats you’re protecting against and secure design principles. Otherwise, security functions can be implemented in ways that don’t actually protect assets from threats. Signiant’s development teams are continually updating their knowledge of secure design principles, and rigorously apply security functions such as:
to ensure users are who they say they are
to ensure that users and automated processes have access to approved assets
to protect data from unwanted disclosure
to ensure data cannot be corrupted
to make sure users cannot deny having taken an action
to protect from interrupted access
Signiant utilizes standards-based security technology like Transport Layer Security (TLS) to secure data and information as it is transmitted, including advanced authentication, data integrity, and data confidentiality.
We ensure that all transfers are appropriately authorized and tracked to provide irrefutable proof that files were delivered.
However, designing secure software is only half the picture. Operating a secure service is equally as important. As a SaaS provider, Signiant employs service organization controls implemented in accordance with industry standards and best practices.
At Signiant, security is much more than just applying technology to mitigate threats; it is deeply ingrained in our way of thinking about software development and operational procedures.
