NetDocuments news: Workshare cloud-to-cloud comparison; ISO 27017 certification; & growth stats

It’s been a big August for NetDocuments with the following three significant announcements:
Workshare announces integrated cloud-to-cloud comparison capability 
Today (15 August) Workshare will announce that its document comparison tool is now fully integrated into the NetDocuments content services cloud platform.
The new release marks Workshare’s first cloud-to-cloud implementation of its browser-based comparison capability. It enhances the experience of end users with the ability to perform DeltaView comparisons directly within the familiar environment of NetDocuments, without requiring any third-party desktop software.
A statement out today quite fairly says: “As firms switch from on-premise document management to the cloud with NetDocuments, essential tools – like comparison – need to be part of that experience. Cloud-based comparison completes the picture for NetDocuments’ customers seeking superior content services, business continuity, security, mobility, and collaboration.”
ISO 27017 certification and additional SOC 2 controls
Also in August NetDocuments announced that it has completed third-party certifications and attestations for ISO 27017 and GDPR respectively, and has implemented additional controls for its annual Type 2 SOC 2 audit.
Last year, NetDocuments expanded the scope of its ISO 27001 certification, first achieved in 2015, to include the new standards identified in ISO 27018 for the protection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). NetDocuments was the first legal content management service provider to expand its ISO 27001 certification to include the additional controls from ISO 27018.
NetDocuments has now announced the certified implementation of ISO 27017 controls, further extending its ISO 27001 audit to include a code of best practices and security controls relating to data management.
“One of the key differentiators between NetDocuments and other legal content services is the concept of NetDocuments’ customers inheriting audited and certified data protection through the use of NetDocuments’ single global platform,” commented David Hansen, Vice President of Compliance at NetDocuments. “When NetDocuments completes an audit, attestation, or security certification for our service and its infrastructure, all our customers instantly benefit since everyone is accessing the same global instance of the service. This security and compliance-as-a-service benefit is only possible through native cloud technology where a global customer community uses a single certified, protected, and compliant service.”
NetDocuments has also extended its Type 2 SOC 2 audit to include additional privacy controls for data protection.
