Enterprise-Grade Security to Protect Your Data

security overview

Protecting client data is a top priority at Catalyst. In over 18 years of operation, we have hosted thousands of matters and Terabytes of data on behalf of some of the largest companies and law firms in the world—without a single security compromise or incident.

We employ strict security standards and multiple layers of physical, network, application and user-level security that safeguard our clients’ sensitive and confidential information.

Security Highlights

SOC 2 Compliant

Catalyst completes an annual SOC2 audit conducted by Coalfire Systems. The auditor’s report is available upon request.

Data Center Operations and Security

Catalyst chooses colocation facilities that are Tier 3 or better, guaranteeing at least 99.982% availability. All are SOC2 compliant, using the NIST or ISO frameworks.

Third-Party Security Audits

Our security has been inspected and approved by security teams from major insurance and banking companies and by the U.S. Department of Justice. We engage a reputable security company to conduct regular penetration, vulnerability and application security examinations.

Application Security

Catalyst’s first line of defense is limiting the protocols through which clients can connect with our systems and infrastructure. For example, Catalyst’s applications allow access through our firewall (HTTPS), and application servers for those products will only respond to an SSL-encrypted HTTP call. Documents can only be accessed from our dedicated object storage network through an “auth ticket,” which provides unique, time-limited credentials to access the document but nothing beyond.

Catalyst offers optional two-factor security to clients who wish to have an additional layer of security. With two-factor security, the user is prompted to supply an additional token for authentication, as a supplement to name and password.

Privacy Shield Framework

As a registered participant, we are committed to handling data coming from EU countries in accordance with the Privacy Shield Framework. Catalyst is registered with the International Trade Administration (ITA) within the U.S. Department of Commerce.
