Syncplicity PrivacyRegions Answers Data Protection Requirements

Syncplicity PrivacyRegions Answers Data Protection Requirements

Syncplicity is raising the technology architecture bar with a new EFSS innovation that ensures corporate compliance without getting in the way of user productivity. Syncplicity PrivacyRegions allows companies to remain compliant with region-specific data protection and residency regulations while still allowing their users to seamlessly share folders and files with users and companies based in other regions. Personal information (PII) and corporate meta-data is never processed or stored in other regions.

Syncplicity PrivacyRegions uniquely combines regional cloud services, policy-driven hybrid cloud storage and a new privacy driven architecture. Today, we’re pleased to announce that Syncplicity European Union (EU) PrivacyRegion is generally available. This design enables EU-based enterprises to confine the storage and processing of all their files, meta-data, and personal information to the EU region. 

Seamless User Experience

Syncplicity is the only EFSS provider to offer regional cloud services that do not restrict user sharing. We allow users to seamlessly collaborate across regions with a single account, while maintaining all the information—including meta-data—within a designated region. For example, with Syncplicity, an enterprise’s storage and control plane can be in Europe. Other EFSS vendors allow customers to choose a geographic zone for file storage, but they process and store all meta-data, such as filenames, PII, and significant indexing of regional files’ content in U.S.-based cloud services. By contrast, Syncplicity PrivacyRegions segregates a company’s meta-data, PII and file storage to its chosen region. For example, customers who choose Syncplicity EU PrivacyRegion are assured all of their information is kept within Europe.

Syncplicity is the first vendor to provide regional cloud services allowing users to seamlessly collaborate across regions without requiring multiple user accounts for each region. Syncplicity’s solution is unique in segregating all data to specific regions, while still providing users ‘a single-pane-of-glass’ experience and seamless collaboration across regions.

Syncplicity’s release of PrivacyRegions builds upon a long-standing posture of data privacy compliance. Our ‘data protection by default’ strategy provides a flexible architecture with the necessary granular privacy, confidentially and data sovereignty controls built-in, giving our customers the right tools to adapt to evolving regional legislation and business requirements across the enterprise.
