Get the full picture
Give your client valuable advice by understanding all areas of their life, not just your field. EstateBox easily provides a comprehensive view of their life with no extra hassle.

Our Security Measures
EstateBox is built upon a framework that proactively embeds privacy and security into the design and infrastructure of our platform. We understand that you are trusting us with important and confidential information, and therefore take our commitment to security very seriously. Safety and privacy by design is one of our core pillars; it is important that we are transparent about the security of your data.
At EstateBox, security is our top priority, and we are taking all the steps and precautions necessary to be SOC 2 compliant. All employees receive security training and are required to review the applicable security policies. In August 2021, EstateBox had an independent security design review that confirmed EstateBox was built with security as a top priority.
Furthermore, a penetration test was done in January 2022, to ensure that our security holds up to our high standards. We will continue to perform penetration tests to ensure your data remains safe and secure within our platform.
EstateBox takes all precautions to ensure that your data is always secure, at rest and in transit. We implement
role-based access control, demilitarised zones, and expiring file downloads to ensure that your data is only accessible to the right people.
Military-grade encryption and industry-leading technologies such as permission settings, AES-256 encryption, SSO enabled, and TLS 1.2 protocols are used for the transfer of sensitive information. All personal data is encrypted at rest and in transit. Finally, as a Canadian based company, we store all of your data in Canada.
Protecting your data is only effective and worthwhile if your account is secure. On top of enforcing a strong password, two-factor authentication is required to access your EstateBox account. Every time you log in to your account you will need to provide a unique code sent to your email or phone to confirm your identity.
This extra layer of security ensures that even if someone gains access to your password, your information and documents stored in your EstateBox will remain secure.
Who can access your account?
You have complete control over who has access to your account. The only other people with access to your information are the delegates you appoint. No EstateBox employees have access to any information stored in your EstateBox. Limited employees have access to your email address used to sign up for the account, the billing name, and the last four digits of your credit card used for payment. You can rest assured that the only people seeing your data are the people you provided access to.
PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
PIPEDA outlines the requirements for collecting and using an individual’s personal information. At EstateBox, we follow PIPEDA’s 10 fair information principles in order to keep your personal information private and secure. This means that we take the storage, retention, and disposal of your personal information very seriously.
Not only do we hold ourselves to a high security standard, we make sure that all third parties meet our standards as well. You can rest assured that any third parties with access to your information have high level security measures in place. You can see a list of our sub-processors and their function here.
