Security & Compliance
We help you make it possible to ensure data, systems, and information remain legally compliant and secure while being able to take advantage of all the benefits of remote work.
“We go beyond the efforts of most companies to ensure that your privacy is never compromised. While the norm is only to protect employees with antivirus software and a firewall, our cybersecurity experts realize this tactic is becoming outdated, and we must do significantly more.”
Iffi Wahla | CEO and co-founder of Edge
Data & Systems
All members of our global talent network are trained on security ethics from the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency, with refresher courses every six months. Ensuring our team is well-educated to detect phishing and social engineering attacks minimizes the risk of account compromise or any malware or virus entering our systems.
Our global talent network members participate in security-themed courses during their mandatory attendance in Open Academy, our proprietary training program.
Expanding your team to a global workforce doesn’t mean you have to release your intellectual property. Every member of our global talent network signs a Non-disclosure Agreement (NDA). Edge also offers an employer-of-record solution so that any local contracts with your remote employees transfer IP ownership to your company.
For our healthcare sector clients, we offer the option to sign a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) at a company level. This provides greater legal protections than if the BAA is signed by a foreign company or an employee outside the United States. In those scenarios, the ability to enforce the provisions in the BAA becomes significantly lower.
We provide all members of our global talent network with all the equipment they need to work safely and securely with your company.
We install protective software on all electronic devices, including business-specific anti-virus software, malware protection, 100% encryption, and other security features to protect everyone involved from potential hacks.
Did you know that over 80% of successful data breaches are due to weak or compromised passwords? That’s why we utilize complex password protections, enhanced two-factor authentication, and store all passwords in a password manager.
Working remotely doesn’t have to mean working from home. Ideally, your remote team members should work in a dedicated office, not at their kitchen table. At Edge, we have offices in all our major city hubs, each with biometric access to ensure that only approved personnel can enter.
