eformsign considers user data security as the first priority

AES-256 bit encryption

Based on the data protection risk assessment, eformsign uses AES-256 bit encryption (256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard) technology for all data encryption process, which the technology is adopted by the U.S. government for protecting top-secret files. AES-256 is one of the most complex levels of encryption among algorithm.
eformsign system automatically encrypts the data or file into the block before writing and reading the data from the system. Also, it does not let any of the unencrypted data to be written on the system.

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Certified

ISO 27001:2013 is the leading international standard on the assurance of information security.
