Maxwell Company Description

We built Maxwell to give local lending teams a permanent, disruptive financial advantage.

Today, our suite of technology-powered solutions addresses the entire mortgage loan process, from intake of application to the secondary market. Through our Mortgage Optimization Platform, we help non-depository mortgage banks, credit unions, brokers, and local banks connect their communities with the life-changing benefits of homeownership.

Maxwell was founded in 2015 by homebuyers who believed a better mortgage process was possible for lenders and borrowers. After spending a year with over 1,000 mortgage professionals, the founding team set out to build solutions that would help lenders gain efficiency, streamline their processes, and focus on high-value work to grow their businesses.

Now, we employ world-class software experts and mortgage experts to innovate solutions that help local lenders compete and win against the industry’s largest players.

Product Description

Maxwell Mortgage Intelligence is a reporting and analytics suite built for the mortgage industry.  We provide out-of-the-box reporting capabilities by connecting to our lending partner's Loan Origination System, collecting and aggregating loan data, and surfacing business insights in an easy to use web application, with minimal up-front time or resource investment.

Additionally, the Information Security Policies also govern Maxwell’s rigorous security standards in working with vendors, partners and customers.

Industry Leading Credentials

Maxwell has undergone independent audits for SOC2 Type 1 and SOC2 Type 2 certifications. More information on SOC 2 can be found on the AICPA website.

Maxwell’s commitment to industry standards is further validated through security and vulnerability assessments that are carried out by third-party experts on a regular basis.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

Maxwell has documented Crisis Management and IT process recovery procedures, together with functions to ensure continuous DR training, testing and maintenance. To guide this effort, a Risk Assessment and Business Impact Analysis (BIA) were conducted to both identify potential threats and establish the prioritized timeframes for the recovery of Maxwell’s core processes and systems.

A Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plan can be made available, upon request, for qualifying customers under an NDA.

Vulnerability and Penetration Testing

All Maxwell code undergoes a time-boxed, source-assisted penetration test by a third-party on a regular basis. The purpose of these tests is to identify exposure to any malicious actors, whether directly or indirectly, and audit the code for any vulnerabilities and insecure design. Every test performed on code, deployment, network perimeter, or corporate security is documented internally and accompanied by recommendations to improve security.

Regular Vulnerability and Penetration testing by independent third parties also allow Maxwell products & services to stay abreast of an evolving cybersecurity landscape.

Additional information on third-party Vulnerability and Penetration testing can be made available, upon request, for qualifying customers under an NDA.
