GDPR-compliant data storage
Comply with GDPR on the basis of a central archive storage platform
For many companies the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is associated with enormous risks and uncertain costs - since May 25, 2018 the new regulations for wide-ranging privacy must be implemented. The EU takes the gloves off: up to 4% of the global annual turnover or € 20 million penalty may be due in case of serious offenses! Keywords such as the right to be forgotten, integrity protection, encryption and privacy-by-design are part of the agenda and must urgently be implemented. We provide with software-defined storage and archiving solutions the foundation for GDPR-compliant data management.

- Data integrity
Our solutions ensure data integrity by storing all information (data, meta data, hash values) in self-sustaining secure archive containers.
- Encryption at Rest
Our solutions support AES-256 encryption to prevent unauthorized access.
- Separation of clients, user data and meta data
Multi client capability enables a secure separation of archived data in different repositories. The user data and meta data are strictly separated.
- Access control
All access attempts to archive objects are documented in audit logs. Only authorized users get access to personal data.
- Retention management
Timestamps, lock concept and WORM functionality guarantee a secure data retention to meet various legal requirements.
- Data consistency
The Self-Healing functionality allows to store data on several paths (replication). Damaged objects can automatically be identified and replaced to ensure data consistency and integrity on all paths.
"Many requirements of the GDPR are easier to implement based on a central archive storage platform. First, the GDPR requires a review and optimization of existing business processes. Technology is only the second step, but it can be crucial for the implementation and continuous compliance."
