DocuSign, Inc. announced the general availability of the new DocuSign Security Appliance. The unique solution provides DocuSign Digital Transaction Management (DTM) platform customers the option of encryption key management and auditing for their DocuSign documents behind their firewall.
This allows customers to realise the benefits of cloud-based DTM while meeting their specialised security requirements.
"The DocuSign Security Appliance allows Bank of America to leverage the benefits of DocuSign's cloud-based Digital Transaction Management platform while maintaining control over data security within our own data centers," said Scott Coleman, SVP, Technology Innovation Portfolio, Bank of America. "Bank of America partnered with DocuSign in the development of this new feature which provides tremendous flexibility to realise the benefits of DTM while maintaining compliance within the Bank's existing customer agreements, security policies, and regulations that a pure SaaS solution couldn't have offered."
The DocuSign Security Appliance, in combination with DocuSign's industry-leading ISO 27001 security certification and bank grade security program, opens up business value for enterprises using the DocuSign DTM platform in the most security-conscious industries, including financial services, insurance, healthcare, and government.
"In meetings, focus groups, and surveys, customers have been asking for more control over their own encryption key security and auditing," said Grant Peterson, chief technology officer, DocuSign. "Developed with input from key companies in high-security industries, the DocuSign Security Appliance puts the same cutting-edge encryption key management technology used in DocuSign's own Digital Transaction Management platform and systems in the hands of our customers."
