We are also accredited by the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA), a highly coveted accreditation by the “Gold Standard” Association for background screeners.

We share this accreditation with less than 5% of all national CRAs and we maintain it through rigorous on-site and surveillance audits, so you can rest assured that we’re fully committed to upholding and delivering the highest level of industry compliance standards.

The CastleBranch Difference

Data Security
Data Security

For two decades, our clients have counted on us for peace of mind that all their awesome people’s personal data is secure and protected—but don’t take it from them.

Take it from our Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA) accreditation—a coveted credential earned by less than 5% of all CRAs nationwide.

We earned and maintain this accreditation by consistently demonstrating safe, secure, and ethical practices while responsibly storing personally identifiable information in compliance with all industry best-practices.

Corporate Learnings/Best Practices Model
Corporate Learnings/Best Practices Model

Some of us know it as our Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop model.

It’s built from the ongoing valuable feedback we gain from our 35,000 client accounts and the symbiosis between our internal departments who research, consult, develop, and engineer ways to evolve and implement better solutions based on those learnings.


You’ll hear a lot of background screening companies mention their accuracy in non-specific terms. Let us break the mold for you.

Last year, we reviewed 5.5 million records and processed over 4.4 million background checks with a 99.996% accuracy rating.

This means that our reports protect you from costly litigation due to incomplete or inaccurate results, so you aren’t left gambling with your organization’s compliance just for a risky “fast” turnaround time.

And don’t worry—with us you’ll have results within an average of 48 hours, so you get the best of both worlds.

Hundreds of experts. One location. Zero worries.
