Meeting Canadian data residency requirements
We understand that security and privacy are of the highest priority, which is why we provide critical in-country data storage for our Canadian customers.
Cloud-based technology is quickly transforming the way Canadian businesses operate, which has resulted in an increased demand for more resilient and comprehensive cloud computing infrastructures. For document-driven, crucial service industries like healthcare, the integrity of data is a top priority, which means that healthcare providers are seeking communications solutions that adhere to compliance mandates while enhancing the ability to provide fast, reliable, and superior patient services.
Since the Canadian Government adopted a cloud-first strategy, data residency in public cloud offerings has become a priority. Upland InterFAX, a leader in cloud-based digital transformation resources, has a long history of supporting regulatory requirements, data security, and data residency in the countries in which we operate. Upland recently invested in opening a Montreal-based data center to provide critical in-country data storage for our Canadian customers.
For Canadian companies looking to adopt digital transformation technologies, there are many considerations to consider to make sure all the bases are covered. Whatever cloud fax provider you choose, here are a few key areas that you will want to discuss before implementing new technology into your daily processes:
- Data residency
- Integration capabilities via a flexible Developer API (learn more)
- Data security
- Data breach remediation and contingency plans
- Data retention requirements
- Compliance with data privacy laws like PHIPA and PCI DSS (learn more)
