FileCloud, a cloud-agnostic Enterprise File Sharing and Sync platform, announced GDPR compliance support across Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. With GDPR regulations set to be imposed on May 25, FileCloud empowers large organizations with an international presence to choose where to host their data.
By enabling organizations to seamlessly integrate leading cloud offerings such as Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure into FileCloud, and adding a secure, collaborative layer, FileCloud solves the compliance piece of the puzzle that has eluded standardized SaaS solutions.
“No other enterprise file sharing platform on Amazon AWS or Microsoft Azure offers similar breadth of features to support GDPR,” said Madhan Kanagavel, CEO and co-founder, FileCloud. “FileCloud offers incomparable levels of flexibility and compliance so organizations can choose their vendors and methods of infrastructure support for their unique data.”
With the introduction of GDPR, enterprises increasingly want to be aware of where their data is stored and processed. Many SaaS vendors can’t guarantee where the data is stored and processed. Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure offer data centers in multiple regions across the globe. With FileCloud running on AWS or Azure, enterprises can control and be aware of where the data is stored and processed. This control aids enterprises in their GDPR compliance efforts.
Global organizations operate across multiple geographic regions and deal with data from EU data subjects. Not complying with GDPR can lead to hefty penalties, up to 4% of a company’s revenue. FileCloud enables organizations to comply with GDPR requirements. In addition to GDPR support, FileCloud provides tools and features to fulfill complex requirements on data ownership/control, manageability, security, monitoring and other regulatory standards that are critical for large enterprises.
"As businesses in Europe are scrambling to meet GDPR, they are seeking a file sharing and content collaboration solution that can help in their GDPR compliance efforts. With the flexibility to be deployed in any infrastructure including Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure, FileCloud helps our European customers to fulfill their GDPR obligations," said Siegfried Plommer from beyond SSL. beyond SSL is based in Germany and is focused on solutions in the fields of connectivity, security and data privacy.
