According to a recent press release, “Egnyte, the leading cloud provider of smart content collaboration and governance, today announced their platform’s support for GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliance across all 28 EU countries. Egnyte is the first platform with the ability to comprehensively detect PII (Personally Identifiable Information), such as National ID numbers, Bank Account numbers, and National Healthcare numbers, which is unique to individual countries. In addition to classifying unique pieces of PII, the Egnyte platform will be able to detect PII in all 24 official languages found throughout the EU, from Bulgarian to Swedish.”

Kris Lahiri, Data Protection Officer and Co-Founder at Egnyte, commented, “As businesses grow their global footprint they are responsible for managing customer PII in a variety of different countries, which presents a number of difficulties when it comes to following proper security and compliance regulations, like the GDPR… Our goal is to simplify compliance by providing a single platform with easy-to-use tools that businesses can trust to securely manage all of their content, in whatever country they are doing business in.”

The release goes on, “The Egnyte platform supports GDPR compliance and helps customers avoid costly penalties by offering: Content Classification – Customers can classify all of their content and locate PII across both cloud and on-premises repositories. Data Residency – With Egnyte’s European datacenter, customers can ensure their necessary data never leaves the EU. Egnyte also supports 3rd-party object stores including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Storage and more.”
