OwnBackup, a leading cloud-to-cloud business continuity platform, recently announced the expansion of their global data center operations to now include London. Demonstrating their commitment to United Kingdom customer privacy and regulatory compliance, the London data center gives customers the option to store and process their data completely within the UK. OwnBackup now has nine global data centers across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia.

“Driven by strong customer demand since the announcement of Brexit, this latest addition to our global data center options will significantly expand our UK business opportunities and our mission to ensure that no company operating in the cloud will ever lose data,” said Gareth Morris, VP & GM of EMEA at OwnBackup. “We strive to help all of our customers minimize the risk of any data loss, reduce storage costs, eliminate regulatory compliance headaches, and have the tools to properly govern all of their crucial enterprise data.”

Simplify Regulatory Compliance Challenges

Even though GDPR will no longer apply directly in the UK at the end of the Brexit transition period (December 31, 2020), UK organizations will likely need to remain compliant with its requirements. This has created unique challenges for organizations that process EU residents’ personal data. Among them is the need to store and process certain customer data completely in the UK. 

OwnBackup helps overcome these challenges by making it simple for customers to store and process specific Salesforce data completely within the UK or within both the UK and EU. Furthermore, OwnBackup for GDPR enables all of it’s customers, regardless of location, to: 

  • Maintain data transparency through powerful search capabilities

  • Respond to Subject Access Requests across all backups

  • Customize backup retention controls to meet corporate objectives

  • Store immutable backups for disaster recovery purposes

 

Maintain Data Security & Privacy

UK customers can rest assured that their data is stored within the boundaries of UK laws, while maintaining the same level of security existing OwnBackup data center locations provide. OwnBackup customer data runs on AWS servers across nine data centers distributed across the globe. In addition, OwnBackup applies industry-leading security measures including AES 256-bit encryption at rest, encryption in transit, audit logs & monitoring, an Intrusion Detection System (IDS), and a 24x7 response team.
