Quickbase understands the need to provide assurance to customers operating in regulated environments and has taken steps to provide attestations and other supplemental documentation to support these efforts.
It is important to note that the Quickbase platform operates under a shared responsibility model. While Quickbase maintains responsibility for ensuring the security and compliance of the underlying platform infrastructure and supporting technology, Quickbase customers are responsible for ensuring apps and realms are designed, implemented and maintained to meet individual security, compliance and legal needs.
Quickbase is committed to maintaining compliance with the below frameworks and requirements, but Quickbase cannot advise customers on how best to achieve their compliance needs. Customers should consult their own compliance professionals to ensure their applicable compliance requirements are met.
SOC1 – Type II • SOC2 – Type II • SOC3
- SOC1 – Type II: This report provides assurance to customers leveraging Quickbase for processes that impact financial reporting.
- SOC2 – Type II: This report is intended to meet the needs of a broad range of users that need detailed information and assurance about the controls at Quickbase relevant to security, confidentiality and availability.
- SOC3: This report is designed to meet the needs of those seeking assurance about the controls at Quickbase relevant to security, confidentiality and availability, but do not have the need for or the knowledge necessary to make effective use of a SOC2 report.
