Today, AvePoint is pleased to announce that we have joined forces with 100 plus companies that make up the signatories to the Cybersecurity Tech Accord. This is a key continuation of AvePoint’s commitment to help create a safer online world by fostering collaboration among global technology companies committed to protecting their customers and users and helping them defend against malicious threats.

As a global company which is responsible to employees, shareholders, and customers, our vision for AvePoint is to build an environment in which we earn trust and confidence every day through enabling collaboration and innovation while implementing a best-in-class security and privacy program.

We’ll be doing so by:

  1. Building a corporate culture in which privacy and security are enablers of productivity, collaboration, and trust,
  2. Balancing the free flow of information with the risk of inappropriate access and/or disclosure, and
  3. Implementing a risk-based approach to privacy and security that will not only allow us to maintain legal and regulatory compliance in the jurisdictions in which we operate, but also to facilitate business and innovation at AvePoint.

At AvePoint, rather than “stopping” the business from doing its job, our security and privacy program will empower the company to realize our full potential and business objectives. We hope that our external work with important industry associations like the Cybersecurity Tech Accord will allow us to work together with industry partners, government organizations and NGOs to collaborate, innovate and make the digital ecosystem better and more secure for all.

As we work with our CTA partners, we will also continue to apply cybersecurity best practices internally in continuation of our company’s commitment to transparency with our customers and employees regarding our data collection, use, retention, and sharing practices. This is also a continuation of our commitment to implement appropriate technical security measures to protect all AvePoint stakeholders.
