SAN JOSE, Calif., July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Even if your headquarters is in the U.S., you still need to be aware of data compliance rules in the countries you serve. For instance, if you have customers or employees in France, Germany or anywhere in the European Union (EU), you are required to limit storage of their personal data to servers located in the EU (in accordance with the EU Data Protection Act). Data in motion, say accessed by headquarters in the U.S., must also be protected. Similar regulations apply to Brazil and Russia. So, how do you store, move, and protect customer and employee information while complying with the rules?
Storing the data is more complicated than moving it. You may need to set up your own datacenter or partner with a managed service and hosting provider in each country. CDNetworks and KDDI, our parent company, can help with data center services and storing data locally. This relationship makes CDNetworks a unique partner that can provide both CDN and data center support.
CDNetworks can also help with data in motion. With middle-mile encryption, CDNetworks ensures data security while in motion across a global network of servers. According to data protection rules, even DDoS traffic must stay within the country or region. CDNetworks DDoS Mitigation services can help. If a DDoS attack occurs on your servers, say in your Germany datacenter for instance, attack traffic can be limited to local DDoS absorption infrastructure.
CDNetworks' content delivery network offers 200 points of presence in locations around the world, including throughout the EU, Russia, and Brazil. DDoS Mitigation services include 24/7 monitoring and an attack absorption infrastructure to offload attack traffic and keep it from compromising your performance or data.
