Docupace clients, who are qualified FSI member firms, will also be able to take advantage of OS33's FSI Ambassador Sponsorship Privilege enabling access to Workplace Frontline without charge, nor obligation for the remainder of 2019.
OS33 President, Morley Ivers, explained what this strategic agreement means for the company, "Workplace Frontline is a cornerstone of our cybersecurity and compliance offering for broker-dealers and insurance companies that leverage independent reps. With Frontline every device that attempts to access a firm's private data will be inventoried and secured before access is granted. Additionally, Workplace Stronghold is a turnkey digital workplace that establishes a secure perimeter abound a firm's business applications, files and devices. We are extremely excited to be Docupace's cybersecurity offering and to be representing Docupace's Platform."
Due to an escalation of data breaches and cyber-attacks, regulators including FINRA and NYDFS have tightened cybersecurity regulations for the financial services industry. Workplace by OS33 and Docupace will seamlessly integrate Docupace's Platform with OS33's Workplace Frontline and Stronghold products to create the premier Cybersecurity and Compliance Offering in the marketplace.
Mark Tapling, CEO of Docupace commented; "Broker-dealers and large RIAs face the challenge of securing digital processing and the advisors' endpoint devices. They are responsible for the security of the entry points and workflow, but often do not own or control the devices. Working with OS33, not only can we offer the best-in-class endpoint device protection with Frontline, but also a completely secure digital work environment. Together, this partnership offers the industry's most secure and complete digital operations platform from desktop through clearing and storage."
