SmartRoom ensures data security through SSAE 16 and AICPA AT-801 I certification and advanced technical solutions — monitored by Microsoft Azure. 

AES 256-bit encryption, network segmentation, and firewalls are just a few of SmartRoom’s data security features. Others include remote access relocation, activity reports, and granular permissions.

SmartRoom also includes security mechanisms, which help to identify and account for errors. The software provides complete visibility and control over all documents and user activity — inside and outside the platform. It gives users peace of mind knowing that their data will not fall into the wrong hands. 

SmartRoom software also offers the following important security features:

  • SmartLock. Even after end-users have downloaded materials, you can still revoke access.
  • Document-level security. Admins can limit any user’s ability to view, print, save, and change files — down to the document level.
  • Document redaction. You can also apply redactions to keywords and data patterns in documents automatically.
  • Reporting and alerts. To monitor and analyze all data room activities, and to customize, schedule, and produce thorough activity reports.
  • Security certifications. SmartRoom complies with various region-specific compliances in Europe, Asia, and North America. These include ISO/IEC 27001, AICPA, SOC 1, 2, GDPR, and others. 

Documents are securely encrypted in the SmartRoom database hosted on Microsoft Azure and secured efficiently with encrypted algorithms to keep user data safe and out of unwanted reach. It allows users to revoke access to documents or destroy them even after they’ve been shared and downloaded by users via its smart lock feature.
