Cross-border data protection and GDPR compliance
Protect data. Remain compliant
The growing number of jurisdictional data privacy regulations makes it difficult for businesses to protect their data, remain compliant, and still take advantage of cost savings in the cloud. Finding less expensive storage is complicated by strict cross-border data privacy laws like the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
ShardSecure helps organizations maintain control of their data in the cloud, regardless of where it's stored. You can use the cloud storage providers of your choice, in the geographic locations and jurisdictions of your choice, to mitigate data transfer risk and address data sovereignty concerns. Data can be distributed across different regions of a single cloud provider, across multiple cloud providers, or across a hybrid mix of on-premises storage and one or more cloud providers.
The traditional information security approach for protecting data is to rely on fortifying the perimeters around data. Our software works to desensitize the data itself, adding defense-in-depth and rendering data useless to malicious actors around the world. This neutralizes the impact of data breaches and helps companies maintain compliance.
