Mobile Applications

Nasdaq Boardvantage's comprehensive architecture protects against the risks that come with device mobility - a particular concern for discoverability in the event of theft or loss of device. The Nasdaq Boardvantage app is encrypted to safeguard its content on the mobile device while downloaded content remains under central administrative control so that it can be remotely purged.

Protecting Your Data

Given the sensitivity of client content, Nasdaq takes the position that it is categorically unacceptable for any of our staff to view customer data. All customer data on the server is encrypted. Secured state-of-the-art hosting facilities, architecture, expertise and execution ensure that Nasdaq clients receive the highest commercially available data protection.

Access to the right content at the right time is key to effective board processes and leadership team collaboration. Learn how Nasdaq Boardvantage helps you control access, eliminate mistakes, and efficiently respond to changes.

Content Segregations

The Nasdaq Boardvantage architecture allows users to segregate content by TeamSpaces, which function as focal points for initiatives or processes. Because TeamSpaces are ring-fenced for security, business users only have access to content for which they are explicitly authorized, thereby reducing the risk of sharing outside the team.

Remote Purge

Business users expect ready access to materials, even if they're out of Wi-Fi range. To balance the needs of mobility while maintaining security, particularly when it comes to downloaded materials, Nasdaq Boardvantage uses an encrypted folder, where content, whether online or offline, remains under the control of the administrator. Administrators may purge all offline content, including any notes, remotely, at any time.

Enterprise Sync

Nasdaq Boardvantage uses an Enterprise Sync architecture, which decouples the upload function from the sharing function. Files may be shared only after permissions have been set. However, once initialized, updates are auto-synced. This approach provides the desired benefit of instant access to last-minute changes while avoiding the risk of inadvertent sharing with unauthorized users.


When it comes to senior management communication, high-caliber security is a necessity. But executives are often frustrated by cumbersome passwords. Nasdaq Boardvantage offers Touch ID and PIN Code as secure, user friendly alternatives.

Biometric Access

Nasdaq Boardvantage TouchID uses  biometric fingerprint sensors, making login easier by authenticating users without cumbersome passwords.

PIN Code

A simple numerical code makes access easier and even more secure. The PIN code is associated with an individual's device through an assigned private key.



To meet a variety of IT governance needs, we offer two types of hosting solutions.


Nasdaq Boardvantage hosts and manages the service in the Nasdaq datacenter. The Nasdaq Boardvantage SaaS offering helps clients get up and running quickly and provides the most up-to-date version of the product, at all times. With generous file storage allowance, you can scale quickly and maintain an unlimited document repository, with easy access on web and mobile apps.

On Premise

For some customers, there may be a stipulation for in-house hosting for particular class(es) of data. This is not uncommon in the financial, legal and healthcare sectors, where direct hosting and control over content is the predominant consideration. Our On Premise option satisfies this criterion, delivering the same functionality as our SaaS solution, while fitting the organizational requirement of hosting behind a company’s firewall. 

The Nasdaq Boardvantage On Premise solution, offers clients greater ability to integrate with their existing IT and operational systems. This provides more control, so your IT professionals have direct oversight of how your data treated in transit and where it resides at rest.
