Security

Advanced Security

At every step. At every click.

Every step is recorded. Drafts are securely coded.

Secure foundation.

Your document security is a top priority at LawDocs. Your business documents contain information that only you and your clients need to see, and we intend to keep it that way. Every day we ensure that our security is parallel with industry standards and compliance.

  • Servers and networking

All servers that run LawDocs software in production are recent, continuously patched Linux systems. Additional hosted services that we utilize, such as Amazon RDS, S3 and others, are comprehensively hardened AWS infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platforms.

  • Storage

LawDocs stores document data such as metadata, activity, original files, and customer’s data in different locations while also compiling and generating documents when requested. All data in each location is encrypted at rest with AES-256 and sophisticated encryption keys management.

  • Coding and testing practices

LawDocs leverages industry standard programming techniques such as having a documented development and quality assurance processes, and also following guidelines such as the OWASP report, to ensure that the applications meet security standards.

  • Employee access

We follow the principle of least privilege in how we write software, as well as the level of access employees, are instructed to use in diagnosing and resolving problems in our software and responding to customer support requests.

  • Isolated environments

The production network segments are logically isolated from other Corporate, QA, and Development segments.

  • Customer payment information

LawDocs uses external secure payment processing (Level 1 PCI) and does not store any credit card information.

  • System monitoring and alerting

At LawDocs, the production application and underlying infrastructure components are monitored 24/7/365 days a year, by dedicated monitoring systems. Critical alerts generated by these systems are sent to 24/7/365 on-call DevOps team members and escalated appropriately to operations management.

  • Service levels and backups

LawDocs infrastructure utilizes many layered techniques for increasingly reliable uptime, including the use of auto-scaling, load balancing, task queues, and rolling deployments. We do full daily automated backups of our databases. All backups are encrypted.

  • Vulnerability testing

Web application security is evaluated by the development team in sync with the application release cycle. This vulnerability testing includes the use of commonly known web application security toolkits and scanners to identify application vulnerabilities before they are released into production.

  • Application architecture

The LawDocs web application is multi-tiered into logical segments (front-end, mid-tier, and database), each independently separated from each other in a DMZ configuration. This guarantees maximum protection and independence between layers.
