Ensuring the security of our users' data is imperative. We can guarantee the security due to the following actions.
The Negometrix software is subject to a penetration test on a regular basis. During such a test a third party tries to break into the software (with our permission). Afterwards they report their findings in order for us to make adjustments if necessary.
All client data placed onto the Negometrix platform is stored in Europe on servers from Rackspace Ltd. They are the world leaders in cloud computing and positioned by Gartner in the leaders quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for Managed Hosting".
Rackspace Ltd. has a certified information security management system (ISO 27001).

All activities from our customers and users are logged, both the calls from the Servicedesk and the activities on the platform. This way we can always trace back what happened and when.
Complete zip-export tender
Complete tender files can be exported in a .zip format that can be read and understood independent of the Negometrix software. The .zip contains separate folders for the original (unanswered) tender, sent and received messages, posed tender questions & published answers from the Q&A module, documents & other ‘attachments’, submitted offers and the tender summary report. Yet, also parts of tenders can be exported separately in .pdf or .xls. Exports can be saved on the network environment of the client.
Data at servers
Negometrix will keep the data available on its servers for a minimum of 10 years. In addition, we guarantee to never wilfully delete data from its servers without the consent of its customers. Even if users are no longer clients or using the system, the data will be kept. Please do consider that changing software and hardware standards, may lead to more difficult access to older data.
Our escrow arrangement ensures access to data even in the unlikely case Negometrix may cease to exist for whatever reason.
ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 27001:2013
Security and quality are consistent and serious issues especially in the area of public procurement solutions, where tenders worth millions of Euros are organized. Negometrix is therefore ceritified for both ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 27001:2013.
ISO 9001 is the internationally recognized standard for Quality Management Systems (QMS). It is the most widely used QMS standard in the world. ISO 27001 is the international standard developed exclusively for Information Management Systems (ISMS).
