Deployment and support

The DocSend cloud solution is a web application compatible with most browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Microsoft Edge. It is important to note that some features may not work optimally on other browsers. Also, for a better user experience, the provider recommends using the latest available browser versions. DocSend is available on iOS and Android, but there are no mobile apps.

The DocSend team provides support via live chat, email, phone, and dedicated account managers seven days a week. In addition, the official website has a large amount of information on getting started and using the product, integrations, settings, billing, FAQ, and Troubleshooting.

Security measures

To convince users of the service’s trustworthiness, DocSend complies with SOC 2 rules and GDPR standards. More specifically, the company has implemented a code of conduct, information security policy, staff background checks, disaster recovery and incident response plans, penetration-testing programs, and endpoint encryption for all devices.

Unlike some other providers, DocSend employees do not have access to user data except when needed for account maintenance or for resolving a reported technical issue. However, the DocSend team generally does not need to review customer data for routine maintenance or troubleshooting.

To ensure data security, users can easily limit access to specific email addresses or domains, verify a user’s identity with email authentication, apply a watermark across every page, and protect content with a mandatory NDA that viewers can access with one click. In addition, powerful tracking lets administrators know who views data, when, and for how long.
