At Bitwarden, we are committed to providing the highest level of data security and integrity to our users. That is why, in 2020, we conducted an extensive third-party security audit to ensure the safety of all our customers’ data.
Here, we’re diving into the details of what we discovered in the audit, outlining our commitment to secure data protection and data integrity, and the measures we are taking to ensure the safety of our customers.
The security audit was conducted by NCC Group, a global leader in security testing, risk management and compliance. NCC conducted a thorough review of the Bitwarden platform, code, and infrastructure in order to gain an understanding of our security posture.
They reviewed our architecture, threat models, code, malicious code scanning, and platform security policy. They also looked at our servers, network security, encryption, customer identity verification, and other areas.
The audit was conducted over several months and culminated in a final report that included a list of findings and recommendations for improvements.
Commitment to Data Protection and Integrity
Bitwarden was pleased to see that NCC’s findings matched our own internal review. We found that our data protection and integrity measures were comprehensive and well-implemented.
The audit also found that our customer data is stored securely using several layers of encryption and that customer identity is verified using a rigorous two-factor authentication process.
These measures ensure that customer data is protected from unauthorized access and kept safe from malicious actors.
Measures to Ensure Continual Improvement
The audit also provided us with a number of recommendations for improvements, which we are taking seriously. We have already implemented several of the recommendations and are in the process of rolling out the rest.
These improvements include strengthening the password policy, improving the architecture, and enhancing encryption and authentication measures.
Continuing Our Commitment to Security
At Bitwarden, security is always at the forefront of our minds. We are committed to keeping our customers’ data safe and secure and we are constantly working to improve our security measures.
The audit was an extensive and thorough process, and we are pleased to say that we passed with flying colors. We are now working hard to ensure that we are continually improving our security posture and protecting our customers’ data.
