When it comes to evaluating new sales enablement partners, you have to look for more than just capabilities and features. Now, in today’s day & age, it’s also crucial to consider other areas like security, compliance, and risk. You should be asking yourself questions like, “How is my data protected?” and, “Is this potential tech partner maintaining compliance with 2020’s regulations?”
This is an opportunity to be very clear on this subject. In our mission to deliver the next generation of industry-leading sales technology, we take these areas very seriously.
Last year, Google announced that developers using their API’s would be required to undergo a security audit to continue providing the integration (with G-Suite oAuth).
Naturally, we enrolled in the audit since we require the ability to send and track emails from your Gmail account.
So, in Q4 of 2019, a 3rd party security testing firm performed a full review of our application, development practices, external infrastructure and incidence response plan.
In other words, here’s what was reviewed:
- The security of the FoxBound application itself
- The security of the environment in which we develop FoxBound
- Our plans and procedures in the event of cyberattacks
The tests were conducted by cybersecurity professionals using a combination of manual testing, penetration testing, and automated vulnerability scanning to simulate real-world attacks.
And can you guess the great news for prospective and current FoxBound customers?
The firm fully verified our compliance in all areas which allows us to continue to serve our Gmail-driven customer ecosystem.
In reality, this is a testament to our focus on developing and delivering world-class products with security best-practices in mind.
So what is the takeaway for current and prospective FoxBound customers?
This means that you can have peace of mind knowing that your accounts and information are safely protected by a validated partner.
