Encryption with Cloud Data Privacy

Guaranteed data security for cloud and SaaS environments

For cost reasons, the cloud is a top priority for CIOs. And yet, unresolved issues relating to data security and protection often prevent companies from benefiting from the cost savings inherent in moving to the public cloud. Companies therefore need a solution that encrypts data before it is stored in the cloud to ensure that it meets data protection and compliance requirements.

Using encryption to ensure data security in the cloud

Regulatory aspects make the public cloud a challenge. Depending on the provider, data may be stored in other countries, and the security of the cloud infrastructure is in the hands of the provider. Encrypting sensitive data is the ideal solution if you want to maintain control of your data. And to do so before you send it to SaaS or cloud applications. Cloud Data Privacy serves as an encryption gateway and allows you to guarantee data protection and security, even outside the company.

When is it the right solution?

You need to optimise the company’s IT systems while reducing costs in order to meet the requirements of the business. You are also responsible for ensuring that regulatory and compliance requirements are met. To do so, data can be encrypted before being stored in the cloud.

SaaS services in the public cloud meet many company requirements for a flexible, scalable and cost-effective IT system. Cloud Data Privacy allows you to take advantage of these benefits, while ensuring that sensitive data, such as personal information, is protected. This enables you to comply with regulatory and legal requirements, such as FADP and GDPR, while also taking advantage of the benefits offered by SaaS services.
