LONDON, United Kingdom – September 30, 2020 – ActiveCloud (part of Softline Group) has confirmed the compliance of its cloud infrastructure with the strict requirements of Russian legislation on protection of personal data for the 2nd level of security (UZ2), having successfully passed an independent audit and compliance assessment.
Digital transformation is forcing companies to collect more and more data about their customers. In order to serve their customers better than others and offer the goods and services that meet their expectations it is necessary to know literally everything about the client. Companies today are forced to collect and process transaction histories, social media profiles, state registry data, photos from surveillance cameras, mobile tags and many other information about consumers. The growing role of the online business component due to coronavirus restrictions is further accelerating the pace of data accumulation. The more voluminous and sensitive the information about the client is, the higher requirements for its protection are imposed by the law on protection of personal data.
Today no public company can afford to become the anti-hero of news portals without consequences due to the leak of personal data. It hits both the reputation and the pocket. Therefore, our customers are forced to make more and more efforts to protect information, and it is important for a cloud service provider to ensure a high level of cybersecurity of their infrastructure in order to meet today’s customer needs.
“The third level of security most often found in Russian clouds today is obviously in many cases insufficient for reliable protection and compliance with the requirements of the law. By placing their business applications in the cloud customers find themselves in a certain dependence on the cyber competence of the supplier expecting a high level of protection of personal data by default. Therefore, it was decided in ActiveCloud to move to a more complex 2-nd level of security which allows you to securely store sensitive biometric information and data about the health of Russians in the cloud,” comments Dmitry Yashin, CEO of ActiveCloud in Russia.
