Our subservice providers

At least annually, DocSend performs a review of our subservice providers.  In the event these reviews have material findings which we determine present risks to DocSend or our customers, we will work with the service provider to understand any potential impact to customer data and track their remediation efforts until the issue is resolved.

Security Incidents & Reporting 

If you see something, say something. If you need to submit a potential security incident to DocSend please provide a summary report to the DocSend Security Team as an attachment to [email protected]. The Information Security team will evaluate the report and may arrange to discuss specifics.

DocSend protects data in transit between our apps and our servers, and at rest. Documents are stored behind a firewall and authenticated against the sender’s session every time a request for that document is made. We enforce the use of industry best practice for the transmission of data to our platform,Transport Layer Security (TLS), and data is stored in SOC 1 Type II, SOC 2 Type II, and ISO 27001 certified data centers. Your documents are stored and encrypted at rest using AES 256-bit encryption.

Automatic Audit Trails

The non-editable audit trail ensures that every action on your documents is thoroughly tracked and time-stamped, to provide defensible proof of access, modification, and, where applicable, signature. These records include a hash of the PDF document which we can compare to the hash of a questionable PDF document to determine whether or not it has been modified or tampered with.

Application Security and Testing

DocSend has a formal application security program in place with application security staff.

We regularly test our infrastructure and apps to identify and patch vulnerabilities. We also work with third-party specialists, industry security teams, and the security research community to keep our users and their files safe. WeTo further enhance our application security, we run a bug bounty program and engage multiple times a year with third-party penetration testing teams to ensure our products are secure. Potential security bugs and vulnerabilities can be reported to our Bug Bounty program. Please contact our security team at at [email protected] for more information.


It’s imperative that you can control who can do what within the system. Different roles carry different access rights. Learn more about role-based security permissions.
