Data protection has always been crucial for any kind of organisation, and with the rise of cloud computing it is more relevant than ever before. Paradoxically, storing data in cloud applications, hence making it an easy target for theft, has become the norm for most companies across the globe. Michael Hoos, CEO of the European Cloud Access Security Broker Centraya, explains: “During past decades, businesses have spent fortunes on data protection. But suddenly the cloud appears and the only safety measures are contracts and trust. That did not make sense to us. Why can’t customers use the cloud and still keep full control over their data?” Centraya provides the solution. It protects structured and unstructured data in cloud applications such as Salesforce, MS,
CRM, Servicenow without compromising the application’s functionality or straightforwardness. While Centraya is using all required encryption mechanisms, only the customer generates and owns the keys, which raises the security level. “Today, Centraya is primarily useful for companies that are subject to stringent requirements such as patient data handling regulations,” Hoos adds. “How-
ever, due to the new EU Data Protection Directive, Centraya becomes relevant for every business.” With penalties worth millions for any violation taking effect from May 2018, it is time to start thinking about sufficient data protection and Centraya is your leading partner. www.centraya.com
