This is a question we get all the time: How do you guarantee security and compliance with EU Requirements?
Cornerstone achieves this through a number of complementary ways: through certifications and standards, through application data access control features, through contractual obligations aligned with EU principles of limited, controlled and secured data processing.
We are Safe Harbor, ISO 27001, SSAE 16 Type II and PCI-DSS certified and we maintain a state-of-the-art multi-tenant, multi-database architecture with the highest compliance, security and uptime standards. For your security and scalability, we do not co-mingle data. Importantly, our infrastructure is designed with clustered servers for redundancy and reliability to ensure there is no single point of failure.
As a Global SaaS Cloud provider with 20 million subscribers in 191 countries, we work individually with each client to set up the adequate legal framework for data processing for the client’s context, like Safe Harbor, EU Model Clauses or tailored data processing agreements.
Cornerstone takes data protection and data privacy regulations very seriously and works with legal advice locally.
Cornerstone works closely with its clients’ HR, Legal and Data Protection departments to ensure compliance with Data Privacy regulations.
Cornerstone’s European Headquarter and Data Centers are in the UK. As such, Cornerstone is subject to the UK Data Protection Act. Cornerstone is registered with the UK ICO and adheres to the principles of data processing:
Cornerstone’s culture of continuous process improvement ensures that our infrastructure is based on the latest technology that is developed and maintained by our dedicated, world-class IT Security and Compliance team. Our global team is highly accomplished – all team members hold one or more professional security or compliance certifications.
Our global team has a European Practice to support our EU clients with local regulations and requirements.
