Contract Security

Contract Hound is designed with security in mind from the very beginning. We know that contracts are the most sensitive documents inside your business – and we go to great lengths to keep them secured. Here’s how.

Data Center Reliability

In partnership with Amazon AWS, Contract Hound offers best-of-breed storage peace-of-mind for every document you upload.

  • ISO 27001 and PCI DSS certified data centers
  • High availability locations, designed to provide 99.999999999% durability and 99.99% availability of objects over a given year
  • Regular backups
  • Designed to sustain the concurrent loss of data in two facilities

Our IT infrastructure is designed and managed in alignment with global best practice, including but not limited to:

  • SOC 1/SSAE 16/ISAE 3402 (formerly SAS 70)
  • SOC 2
  • SOC 3
  • DOD CSM Levels 1-5

Security Protocols

We combine this with an infrastructure security guarantee that protects your documents both in-transit and at-rest.

  • Secure Socket Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) encryption for all data in transit
  • Regular access audits
  • Full audit trails
  • Continuous intrusion detection
  • Best-practice IAM-based access control based on least-privilege access
  • Further security protocols (an outline is available on request)
