theEMPLOYEEapp conducts annual vulnerability testing through leading security vendor Veracode. The penetration testing identifies known security vulnerabilities that cybercriminals could exploit to steal sensitive data belonging to companies and their employees. Veracode’s Security Quality Score is a single score from 0 to 100, where a score of 100 is an application with no detectable security flaws. theEMPLOYEEapp received scores of 100 in every relevant penetration test category, including Spoofing, Exploitation of Authentication, Data Structure and Data Leakage Attacks, and more.
In addition to vulnerability testing from Veracode, theEMPLOYEEapp also achieved its annual SOC 2 Type 2 Compliance. SOC compliance is the most popular form of a cybersecurity audit, used by a rapidly growing number of organizations to demonstrate that they take cybersecurity and privacy seriously. This reflects the security of theEMPLOYEEapp’s internal controls, security policies, and procedures to keep customer data safe. A-LIGN reviewed theEMPLOYEEapp’s policies, procedures, and systems that protect information across five categories called Trust Services Criteria (Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, Privacy). As an independent, third-party auditor, A-LIGN evaluates the evidence about theEMPLOYEEapp’s controls in each category, resulting in a compliant SOC 2 report.
