Data Security

We take uncompromising measures to keep your data safe and secure.

Every day, we process tens of thousands of data transactions for our clients. Because we take security and compliance extremely seriously, we minimize the storage of highly sensitive data—such as personally identifiable information—and protect all sensitive information with multiple layers of security protocols and information security processes as part of a comprehensive data security plan.

Before you choose a Vendor Management System (VMS), it is important to understand that not every VMS is equally secure. When your organization stands to gain so much from implementing a contingent workforce management solution, it would be foolish to risk all these gains by accepting anything less than the strongest possible measures for managing the security of your data.

Beeline’s uncompromising approach to data security ensures the best possible protection of personal and company information, from the underlying hardware and software architecture to the regular scans and periodic audits that provide ongoing assurance that your data is secure.


State-of-the-art data centers

Beeline has six data centers on two continents, with primary and secondary data centers in both the U.S. and Germany.
This capability reflects our commitment to be the best global VMS provider with regional services for international companies.

We know that many European companies have special concerns about liability and confidentiality issues, sensitive company and personal information, as well as data security. These companies gain confidence knowing Beeline is a trusted Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution provider that can host their data within Europe, closer to their operations and covered by European data protection and privacy laws, including GDPR and the Privacy Shield Framework.

Privacy shield and GDPR

The U.S. and the EU have agreed to the Privacy Shield Framework, designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission, respectively, to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce. Beeline is Privacy Shield certified and our certification covers all of our VMS solutions.

Beeline has taken steps to be compliant with the GDPR, including rewriting policies, appointing a Data Privacy Officer, setting up a process to handle complaints or concerns about the way in which personal data is being used, assigning an ADR, creating a data breach response to comply with the reporting requirements and timelines, and created a data breach response to comply with the reporting requirements and timelines. Beeline also understands that one of the most difficult aspects of the GDPR law to comply with is the right to be forgotten. We have taken strides to ensure that we can provide the capability for all of our customers to enact this right through our VMS solutions. Beeline continues to monitor the implementation of the GDPR and make changes as necessary.

“Our European data centers represent a substantial component of our global commitment and strategy.”

Experienced, Dedicated, Award-Winning Teams

A dedicated information security and privacy team stays on top of continuously evolving industry best practices and implements those into the Beeline technology. Robust identity management ensures the right people have access to the right information at the right time.

Penetration Testing

Beeline’s commitment to data security means we have to stay ahead of vulnerabilities that hackers can exploit. Beeline engages an independent third party to conduct penetration testing of our environment annually. If a simulated cyberattack reveals a weakness, we create a remediation plan to address and fix any vulnerabilities. Both the third-party report and remediation documentation are shared with clients upon request. In addition to our annual formal risk assessment program, we employ a “white hat” ethical hacker who “pen tests” our environment throughout the year.

Annual Audits and Examinations

Beeline adheres to rigorous, year-round Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE 18) and International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE 3402) audit processes, offering a full year auditing window to ensure our clients’ audits have full coverage. Both SSAE 18 and ISAE 3402 engagements allow Beeline to have its control policies and procedures evaluated and tested by an independent party.

The annual SOC 1 and SOC 2 examination reports resulting from this audit positions Beeline as a strong partner for its control environment, specifically surrounding financial, security, and confidentiality. Successful completion allows Beeline to provide customers with detailed information regarding the system and controls that impact internal controls in financial reporting, and allows Beeline to ensure that policies, processes, and procedures are in place to protect customer system resources and information designated as confidential.

Faster, safer web access with Cloudflare

Beeline uses Cloudflare – a premier Internet content delivery network that provides web application acceleration to all corners of the earth while ensuring security, reliability, and integrity of data across its global network. If Cloudflare should ever go offline, traffic would redirect to the Beeline network and route the data through Beeline data centers.

Data centers only offer physical protection of data. To better address all aspects of security, Beeline implemented additional layers of protection by deploying Cloudflare’s security services to block attacks. Cloudflare detects and deflects threats in HTTP and HTTPS traffic before they ever reach the customer.

Security is a concern for everyone, and this solution allows us to respond quickly to vulnerabilities and ‘zero-day threats’ on a 24/7 basis.
