Remain Secure and Compliant Under EU Data Protection Regulations
Ensuring data remains secure and compliant under existing data protection regulations is becoming increasing important for developers and the enterprises that employ them.
Fortunately, solutions like Caspio are doing what they can do support this new reality.
The "low-code" cloud application platform announced the release of the Caspio EU Compliance Edition, an offering of its platform designed to help its European customers maintain compliance with data protection and privacy laws under the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
In addition to being hosted and operated entirely in AWS datacenters in Ireland and Germany, Caspio's EU compliance edition features some very interesting capabilities. All the data is encrypted at rest and in transfer, meaning there's no opportunity to access the data or applications in a non-encrypted manner. Further, all access to data (create, read, update and delete) is logged on a separate environment outside the account and archived for three years. Caspio also maintains physical operations and contingency procedures to back up, retain and recover customer data.
“European companies face unique challenges operating under strict government regulations that are complex and costly to implement. Caspio customers have a turnkey low-code platform to manage data and create custom cloud applications quickly and within the guidelines,” said Frank Zamani, Founder and CEO of Caspio. “We remain fully committed to meeting the needs of our European customers by providing cost-effective, next-generation cloud application solutions.”
The GDPR was enabled last month and companies will need to be compliance by May 25, 2018. The regulations apply to the processing of personal data of citizens residing in the EU, regardless of whether the company or data processor is based in the EU. Companies that do not comply with the new regulations potentially face fines of up to 4 percent of their total revenue or 20 million euros (whichever is greater).
