NEIS receives SOC 1 Type 1 designation; passes with zero exceptions.
Because of a long-term, unrelenting commitment to quality and data security, NEIS was certified with no exceptions.
Further data security enhancements
As added security and for a more efficient workflow, NEIS contracts with a third party that provides online backup for all field machines and mission critical office machines. It also allows IT to gain access to these machines and shut them down, making them useless in the event of a personnel issue. With the addition of online backup, if a field machine fails, a new machine in the office has the field reps data downloaded and the machine is overnighted that night. Field rep downtime is a maximum of 24 hours.
NEIS receives second SOC 1 designation, Type 2; passes with zero exceptions.
