CLOUD DATA PRIVACY

Secure data processing within IaaS environments.

Stay on the Safe Side to Avoid Compliance Complications

Situation

Until recently, launching new IT applications was a difficult and time consuming effort requiring capital equipment, facilities planning, hardware deployment, and platform software selection before any application could be launched. Managed Service Providers (MSPs) offering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) changed all that. Now, all your development time can be spent creating and improving a business application as long as you can trust your partner to provide a safe and stable environment.

Problem

Renting IT rather than buying is sort of like getting an apartment rather than buying a house. There are many advantages, but the landlord has a front door key. They can enter your abode to perform maintenance or do emergency repairs, similar to IT facilities managers monitoring and updating your systems to meet service level agreements. A problem with some IaaS solutions—they don’t always offer data protection that meets the requirements of your organization, industry or government. Data exposures could incur considerable fines—as with GDPR—when computing or storage systems are located within non-European countries and disaster strikes.

Get Protected with DataKeep

The safest way to use IaaS is to never relinquish control over your data, even if the MSP offers a secure transmission service into a multi-tenant processing environment. By using a client-side data protection technology that ensures only the data owner has access to the decryption keys, you can be confident that all copies of your data created to support data resiliency and disaster recovery service-level agreements won’t persist on these systems in a readable form after all processing is done. For massive collections of infrequently accessed data, point your applications at a low-cost object storage environment housing data protected by DataKeep’s Object Store Agent.
