Meeting European 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 customers residing in the European Union. Learn more here.
Cloud-based technology is quickly transforming the way businesses operate in the European Union, 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 companies are seeking communications solutions that adhere to compliance mandates while enhancing the ability to provide fast, reliable, and superior patient services.
Just like many other countries, EU-based businesses must take data residency into account as a requirement when considering cloud-based applications and infrastructure. 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. It’s important to note that content created in the EU and stored in an EU data center is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Given that the EU has many different privacy laws at both the federal and state levels, data residency may be a requirement if you are considering cloud-based applications and infrastructure.
InterFAX currently operates out of an AWS-based data center in the European Union to provide critical in-country data storage for customers in the EU. For European 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
- Sensitivity of data (healthcare-specific, PII, credit card information, etc.)
