Helsinki, Nov 7: With the growing trend of data migration to the cloud, organizations face critical decisions about how and where their data is handled.
WithSecure™ introduces Cloud Protection for Salesforce, a trusted, natively integrated solution that not only safeguards data but also enables organizations to choose the location where data is processed, addressing the evolving landscape of data protection and compliance.
In an era of increasing cross-border data transfers, understanding the precise location of data has become a complex challenge for organizations. The landscape is further complicated by the proliferation of region and country-specific data protection laws, each with distinct compliance requirements that vary across jurisdictions.
These regulations often emphasize data residency and sovereignty, dictating where data should be stored and processed. The geographical location of data significantly influences its management and protection.
WithSecure™ CEO, Juhani Hintikka, acknowledges that these regulations present both security benefits and operational challenges. “Countries worldwide are recognizing the significance of data as a valuable resource and are responding by regulating its storage and protection.
While this is a positive step for data security, organizations require practical solutions to align with these requirements.
It is now our responsibility, along with our partners, to provide practical solutions that allow organizations to seamlessly integrate security measures without losing sight of their strategic objectives,” he explained.
WithSecure™ Cloud Protection for Salesforce is a native application designed to operate within Salesforce environments. Its primary function is to prevent attacks originating from files and URLs uploaded to Salesforce Clouds. It offers real-time protection against threats such as viruses, trojans, ransomware, and advanced malware.
One of the standout features of this solution is its configurable Point of Presence, which addresses concerns about data processing location. It allows users to select the geographic region where Cloud Protection for Salesforce data is processed. Presently, users can choose between the United States or the European Union. Responding to increasing demand from other regions, WithSecure™ will extend this choice to include Australia and Singapore at the end of November, with plans for further expansion in the future.
“Organizations aim to stay ahead in their compliance with data protection regulations, and these capabilities are in high demand.
However, for many of our clients, it’s not just about compliance. Having control over data processing locations can lead to enhanced service performance, the establishment of trust with customers, and, most importantly, heightened security,” Hintikka added.
