One of the most important facets of a hosted, web-based application web service, like the SmartLegalForm document service is the need to separate and safeguard the confidentiality of user data. Security and privacy are paramount.
SmartLegalForm.com has implemented
numerous measures to ensure the confidentiality and security of
your data. Our solution is hosted in a highly secure
environment, protected by encryption and authentication in a
hardened, protected site.
The SmartLegalForm.com platform and all associated data is hosted by Baltimore, Maryland-based DataPoint, Inc., a top-tier hosting facility that is SAS70 Type II certified.
We utilize the same level of protection and security that is used by banks and required by our national insurance company clients. Through our secure, state-of-the-art hosting facilities, our clients receive the highest data protection commercially available.
We provide an integrated system that allows authorized parties in and keeps everyone else out through the use of:
Physical Security. All computer and network communication systems are housed in a secure, hardened hosting facility with 24x7x365 guard patrols and full surveillance and biometric access control systems.
System Redundancy. Our system has built-in redundancy at every point, including Web, application, file, database, and storage servers.
Network Monitoring. SmartLegalForm.com's infrastructure is continuously protected by a broad shield of network equipment and software tools and continuously monitored by our staff for any attempted network attacks.
Network Security. SmartLegalForm.com requires its customers to use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology (128-bit minimum) when accessing the SmartLegalForm.com applications via an Internet browser. Digital certificates ensure the authenticity of each SSL session. This minimizes the risk of data stream interception between the user's browser and the SmartLegalForm.com web service.
Data Backup. We automatically backup all user data nightly and store it at a secure, off-site facility. All backups are encrypted, and any unused, obsolete, or end-of-life media is destroyed to prevent third-party data retrieval.
User Authentication. Our authentication policies enforce security without increasing complexity for authorized end users.HTTPS Protocol. Sections of this web site, and the entire SmartLegalForm.com Platform, are secure and use the https protocol. This means that all data sent to and from the site is encrypted. You can determine on your own that it is a secure site by noticing that the lock symbol on your web browser is closed when you are in a secure area.
