Security features for more control

Human error is often the reason for security breaches and accidental leaks. To combat this, you need to have safeguards in the system itself to prevent such incidents – and this is exactly what M-Files provides. Proper information management practices are an essential part of your overall data security and integrity. They let you take control of your company’s and your customers’ data.

Policy Enforcement

Automate data security with metadata-driven permissions that allow fully automatic control of access (read, edit, delete, change permissions) for any particular object based on its type or attributes. Permissions change with context of your content so that e.g. when an employee changes jobs, you don’t need to worry about permissions on all the related data.

M-Files supports managing content automatically in complex hierarchical structures, as well as sets permissions automatically based on those structures and reacts to changes.

Certifications and compliances

You don’t have to take our word about keeping your data secure and private. We have numerous 3rd party certifications to prove it. And we are compliant with major industry regulations.  M-Files operates an ISO and SOC certified Quality and Information Security Management System to provide you a secure and high-quality service and takes a legal and ethical approach to its business practices at all times.
