Key Features

  • SOC 1 Type II: NetSuite provides an SOC 1 Type II audit report to its customers prepared by and audited by independent third-party auditors. This report, commonly referred to as Service Organisation Controls report, or SOC 1, is conducted in accordance with attestation standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and International Standard on Assurance Engagements 3402, “Assurance Reports on Controls at a Service Organisation”, issued by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board.
  • SOC 2 Type II: The AICPA created the System and Organization Controls (SOC) II report to provide management of a service organisation, user entities and other specified parties with information and a CPA's opinion about controls at the service organisation that may affect user entities' security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality or privacy. Oracle NetSuite's SOC II is a type II report which means it covers both design and operating effectiveness, are prepared and audited by independent third-party auditors and covers controls on security, availability, and confidentiality.
  • PCI DSS: In complying with PCI-DSS requirements, NetSuite offers optional 3D Secure credit card authentication—also known as Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode. 3D Secure adds a higher level of credit card fraud protection. It requests shoppers to create authentication passwords for their credit cards, or requires them to enter their password if they already have one assigned
  • EU-US Privacy Shield: Oracle complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention when a customer and Oracle have agreed by contract that transfers of personal information from the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or Switzerland will be transferred and processed pursuant to the Privacy Shield for the relevant services. When conducting those activities on behalf of its EEA or Swiss customers, Oracle holds and/or processes personal information provided by the EEA or Swiss customer at the direction of the customer. Oracle will then be responsible for ensuring that third parties acting as an agent on our behalf do the same.

    Oracle has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles. If there is any conflict between the terms in this Statement and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern.
