File Security

File security for Boilerplate's document management system has been a priority since its inception. Security and trust should be a major consideration for any organizational leader choosing a document management system, especially one handling highly sensitive employee and client information. Our software platform was designed to be highly secure from the start to earn the trust of our customers and the integrity of their files. Boilerplate utilizes advanced encryption standards  and employs routine cyber vulnerability scans by the US Department of Homeland Security* for your protection. File security and protecting user data to maintain your trust is our top priority.

System security at the forefront of our encrypted platform:

  • AES-256 Encryption: The Advanced Encryption Standard was established by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology in 2001 to provide specifications for encryption of electronic data. The 256-bit variant offers the best of the widely accepted encryption standard. 

  • Protection: Plaintext versions of your documents are never stored on non-volatile storage. 

  • End-to-End Client-side Encryption: An option is available to enable end-to-end encryption by providing us with a key. This cryptographically prevents even Boilerplate employees from accessing your files.

  • Crypto Key Shredding: When a user wants to delete their data, we can shred their encryption keys prohibiting any future access, another system security measure.

 File security goes beyond our powerful encryption features:

  • U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cyber and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Cyber Hygiene Program*: conducts routine system vulnerability scans for protection from new and existing threats. 

  • HIPAA Compliance: we work with TrueVault and AccountableHQ to ensure HIPAA compliant-transmission and storage of healthcare and medical records.

  • HTTPS: Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure is used for secure communication over the internet. It’s the lock you see in the browser bar next to a site name.

  • Active system monitoring for suspicious activity

  • Ransomeware mitigation measures

  • AWS Back End: files are securely stored within the United States on Amazon servers, a leading cloud storage provider.

  • Firewalls: Employed to reduce threats of unauthorized access to our system, enhancing your file security.
