Protegrity borderless data solution
Cross border data flows in global enterprises are to get a boost following the launch of Protegrity Borderless Data Solution, a new secure and compliant solution from global data security and privacy leader, Protegrity (www.protegrity.com).
Bringing together a suite of software tools, Protegrity Borderless Data Solution (www.protegrity.com/why-its-critical/borderless-data) is designed to help the world’s largest banks, retailers and health insurers continue to reap the benefits of their investments in globalization in an increasingly unstable and fragmented global privacy regulatory landscape.
“At the cornerstone of our rapidly digitizing global economy stands cross-border data flows. Cross-border data sharing allows businesses to innovate, governments to cooperate, and human beings to collaborate. For example, businesses can create new products, services, and operating models, or improve Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) monitoring along their supply chains. Security agencies and law enforcement can identify and track money laundering activities, and researchers can access global datasets to drive scientific advances,” explains Paul Mountford, CEO, Protegrity.
With the growing exposure of consumer data and concerns around national security, countries are rapidly adopting and evolving data localization regulations. But restricting data flows measurably reduces global trade, slows operational productivity, and increases prices for all industries that rely on data, according to the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation. When sensitive data can’t cross borders, businesses must duplicate expensive infrastructure and restrict the data sharing and collaboration that are fundamental to driving innovation and growth.
“Data localization requirements, however well intended, put global innovation – which brings benefits to people everywhere – at risk,” continues Mountford. “Protegrity’s Borderless Data Solution helps enterprises put their cloud strategies back on track, expedite their growth plans, and turn privacy from an inhibitor into a business accelerator.”
“At a global level, it is very hard to support data movement,” adds the Global Senior Vice President of a large global financial services firm. “Through this service, I can guarantee that this data never leaves a particular entity and can satisfy any regulatory requirements. Using Protegrity, I can make those guarantees for our lines of business.”
With its new Borderless Data Solution, Protegrity delivers a first of its kind cross-border data protection service that offers the tools necessary to reinstate business-critical cross-border data flows, including a centrally managed service, federated and isolated jurisdictions, an easy-to- implement common API and frictionless app onboarding. The solution is currently running in one of the world’s largest enterprises to safeguard their most sensitive data.
