Is Where Your Data Stored in the Cloud a Concern?
Data Sovereignty is Important
Now More Than Ever
We’ve always made sure that our customers know exactly where their data is stored and backed up and follow their data sovereignty rules.
With Virtual StrongBox’s secure customer engagement platform, you always know exactly where your data is stored. For our customers in Canada, the data stays in Canada. For our customers in the United States, the data remains in the United States. Other global options as well.
Your data never crosses the border or circles the globe like in other cloud options. Why?
Data is usually subject to the laws of the country in which it is stored
Many compliance regulations mandate that data must be kept in the country in which the consumer lives
Data in the wrong hands within the wrong jurisdiction has the potential of being problematic
Being granted access to data within your own local jurisdiction is more easily afforded than obtaining access to data under another countries jurisdiction
Cloud data storage contract issues may exist and be unfavorable in foreign jurisdictions
IT and data security or privacy protections for your data may not be equivalent to what your own jurisdiction offers
The inability to produce data when legally stored or to protect data from undesirable demands intensifies organizational risk and liability
