Privacy remains an important inhibitor in the deployment of all forms of cloud-based services. This is particularly true in those regions and countries with strong regulatory requirements (such as Europe, with its data protection legislation).
“Public cloud applications must be used with the appropriate governance to ensure compliance with data protection and privacy requirements. Monitoring and controlling how critical data is moving to the cloud and taking necessary steps to protect information assets is essential to achieve security and regulatory compliance. With PerspecSys, Siemens can control data used in SaaS applications and enforce data residency without limiting the functionality and usability of the cloud for our business.”
