Security

Cloud's secure interface provides assurance that your files remain confidential and are shared only with their intended recipients- staff and contacts can only access areas in Cloud that they have been explicitly granted.

CaseWare Cloud and Amazon provide security together under the Amazon AWS Shared Responsibility Model. Amazon's AWS platform is covered by an SSAE 16 report and is PCI Level 1 certified, ISO 27001 certified, and compliant with all major security control frameworks. These security certifications are issued by authoritative international standards bodies. For more details on their security, see here: http://aws.amazon.com/security/.

 CaseWare Cloud has earned ISO 27001 certification for its service delivery, operations and management of the CaseWare Cloud platform. The ISO 27001 certification for CaseWare Cloud can be found here: https://www.caseware.com/cloud-security-compliance.

CaseWare Cloud has also been certified for SOC 2® Type 1. The certification was a comprehensive test of our personnel, processes, operations, and more.
