Data privacy and protection, by design
In the digital age, enterprises need to think globally and be aware of the specific data protection and sovereignty requirements enforced in countries where they do business. In the borderless
digital workplace, you have to know the state of your data – where it’s stored and transferred, who has access to it, and which regulations govern it.
Because a single architecture won’t work for all enterprise users and content, Syncplicity’s “data protection by default” construct provides a flexible architecture with the necessary granular privacy, confidentiality and data sovereignty controls built right in. You get the right tools to adapt to evolving regulatory and business requirements across the enterprise.
Hybrid cloud architecture gives you choices
Enterprises, multinationals, and state agencies need the flexibility to retain data in the region of
their choice. With Syncplicity’s policy-driven hybrid cloud, you have options. Data can be stored in our EU or U.S. cloud storage, on-premises, in a private cloud – or any combination – based on security and data protection requirements.
By choosing the physical location of Syncplicity StorageVaults, you avoid the legal challenges of data transfer across sovereign borders. Our flexible architecture helps you future-proof your digital business by letting you evolve to meet changing regulations and business requirements.
Zero content knowledge: control access to your data
Fear of government access and “backdoors” to data have provoked scrutiny in the global privacy community, leading to drastic reforms in data regulations and enforcement.
Syncplicity StorageVault Authentication (SVA) offers the highest level of security and control to assure compliance with the strictest data processing and confidentiality frameworks. Syncplicity SVA gives IT control over who has access to data and restricts government agencies, as well as insiders, from unauthorized access.
Work globally, store data locally
If your company account is in the Syncplicity EU or U.S. PrivacyRegion, all your data, including personal information (PII), metadata and file content, is kept within regional borders. Our architecture is built on a distributed privacy model that allows users to work seamlessly from anywhere in the world, keeping their personal data stored and managed only in a specified region. Syncplicity’s solution segregates all data to specific regions, while still giving users a
“single-pane-of-glass” for seamless collaboration across regions and devices.
Cloud storage – more choice + scale
Enterprises can define multiple storage policies for their global deployments – leveraging on-premises storage, private cloud, and Syncplicity’s EU or U.S. cloud storage all within a single seamless user experience. Our cloud storage gives you an additional choice and the ability to scale quickly to meet information governance requirements. Globally share files securely while maintaining control of where the data is stored and who manages the content.
Data loss prevention (DLP)
To enforce data security policies for sensitive and confidential content, Syncplicity integrates with leading DLP solutions to restrict access to and sharing of documents based on an organization’s DLP classification and group-based policies. By integrating with leading providers, our customers can leverage their existing DLP systems to further protect their files in Syncplicity, and help secure the enterprise and users from unintentional leakage of sensitive data.
Confidence in EU legal frameworks
Syncplicity EU PrivacyRegion delivers an unmatched architecture to meet GDPR Chapter V Data Transfer principles. Data protection safeguards are built into Syncplicity from the earliest stages of development. We are committed to GDPR compliance, the principles relating to processing personal data, and the rights of data subjects.
Using industry-recognized privacy solutions provider – TRUSTe – Syncplicity has gone through
a third-party audit of its mobile, desktop, and web applications. This included reviewing our policy and privacy practices to provide customers assurance of compliance with the latest EU data protection framework.
EU-U.S. Privacy Shield certification
Syncplicity participates in, and has been certified as, compliant with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and Principles. Privacy Shield is a core part of today’s data protection and legal framework, and certification demonstrates a commitment to addressing European data protection and residency concerns.
Syncplicity’s Data Protection Agreement incorporates the European Commission’s standardized contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to third countries. These “Model Clauses” provide a legal framework to uphold the data protection requirements of the European Union, enabling Syncplicity customers to continue to transfer personal data from the EU when required.
