NEI is SOC II Compliant

Recognizing the ever-increasing importance of information security, NEI invested in a Service Organization Controls (SOC) ll audit and the required technology.  This third-party audit is designed to help measure how well an organization protects its information.  After a rigorous audit of our systems and processes, and how well we adhered to them over the prior six months, we are excited to announce that NEI received a SOC ll certification.

Easier Access and Increased Security Offerings

Data security is of the utmost importance, but dealing with multiple logins for third party sites can be cumbersome.  Problem solved.  NEI can improve the user experience in accessing our Global Gateway with Single Sign-On (SSO) and tighten up security with two-factor authentication.

Single Sign-On (SSO)

NEI offers Single Sign-On (SSO) technology as an option for our Clients who have SSO capabilities.  This allows clients and transferees to seamlessly access our Global Gateway from their company’s network without having to sign on using a separate ID and password

Our clients have found this to be an improved experience for their users and it has helped meet client security needs requiring more strict controls for employee identity accessing third party systems.

Two-Factor Authentication

Using two-factor authentication can further enhance your security.  This offering requires a user to log into our Global Gateway as usual.  The user is then required to enter a PIN number that is sent to their phone to access our system.

NEI Receives Privacy Shield Certification

When working on a global level, compliance with the rules and regulations of other countries is critical.  NEI completed its certification requirements for the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework.

The U.S. Department of Commerce and European Commission designed Privacy Shield to provide companies within our country and the European Union (EU) with a mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements, which increased accountabilities from the previous Safe Harbor self-certification.
