Cloudian and Storage Made Easy Launch GDPR-Ready Enterprise File Sync-and-Share Solution

Del

Ensures compliance by controlling user data location and access, while monitoring for use of regulated personal data

LONDON and SAN MATEO, Calif., July 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cloudian® and Storage Made Easy® (SME) have launched a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)-ready, enterprise-wide file sync-and-share solution, designed to eliminate the compliance exposure of external cloud-based file sharing services where personal data or company confidential information may reside outside the direct control of the IT organization.

The combined solution includes on-premises storage and GDPR-ready collaboration software with access controls and content indexing to continuously monitor for the use of regulated personal data, recognising more than 60 data types including credit card, passport and social security numbers.

Unlike most cloud-based file sharing services, the Cloudian/SME solution lets IT managers control their data's physical location and manage access permissions via existing company authentication frameworks such as Active Directory and LDAP. The solution also provides secure file sharing controls such as password-protected links, configurable download limits, and expiration dates after which links will be disabled automatically. All data accesses are logged, maintaining an audit trail for compliance.   

"With GDPR now in effect, organizations must implement tight controls over data location and usage -- particularly when personal data is at stake -- requirements that most cloud-based services do not meet," said Michael Tso, CEO of Cloudian. "The Cloudian/SME solution gives IT managers peace-of-mind, with end-to-end control of data location and access, and a continuous view of where files are stored, how they are shared, and where personal data is employed."

Compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android platforms, the solution includes configurable synchronization options that let users control where data is replicated, and integration with Microsoft Office and email applications that allow users to securely access and share files.

"Users are going to share information, but that does not mean that IT managers need to lose control. The challenge is to provide easy-to-use file sharing that boosts productivity while ensuring that sensitive information remains secure," said Jim Liddle, CEO of Storage Made Easy. "Cloudian and SME together provide the best of both worlds, combining the simplicity of a cloud-like solution, the security of on-premises storage, and the comprehensive compliance enforcement afforded by our GDPR-ready feature set."

Multiple privacy regulations mandate strict controls on data handling, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018. These require that companies collecting personal data - which includes a wide range of information such as names, identification numbers, location data or online identifiers - both protect the data and delete it if requested. Compliance requires tight controls on how such information is stored and used.

"Our customers needed a turnkey solution to simplify compliance, and we responded with CloudDrive, a Cloudian and Storage Made Easy-based solution that provides GDPR-aligned file sync-and-share service for the enterprise," said Julian Box, CEO at Calligo. "With Cloudian storage and SME software, our customers get easy-to-use file sharing and powerful data management tools that keep IT in control, making compliance one less thing to worry about."

Pittsburgh, PA, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calgon Carbon Corporation today announced a global price increase, effective February 1, 2019, where contracts permit, on all activated carbon products and related equipment due to a continued escalation in raw material costs and transportation expenses.

MPP Global Bridges the Innovation Gap by Centralising Physical and Digital Subscriber Management and Billing in a Single Cloud Platform17.1.2019 12:29Pressemelding

WARRINGTON, UK, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MPP Global, the technology company that delivers eSuite, the world’s smartest subscriber management & billing platform, announces the launch of pivotal new functionality which enables media organisations to seamlessly create and manage the sale of physical subscriptions. This positions eSuite as the complete physical and digital subscription management solution. The development of this industry-first functionality was borne out of the common challenge for publishers when managing multiple systems for deploying bundled print and digital subscriptions. This is inflexible for publishers and limits choice for their customers, restricting the ability to seamlessly create and offer digital and print subscription bundles. Despite increased consumer uptake of digital subscriptions, print still accounts for almost 90% of circulation revenues globally. To drive reader revenues successfully, publishers require functionality to execute complementar
