Data Sovereignty

When you upload your data to the cloud, where is it actually stored?

When you use public cloud services, your data could be stored or moved to on a server anywhere in the world.

CloudFileSync storage agnostic architecture gives organizations complete control over where their data resides.

Whether you are a small business with data in a single location, or a multi-national with international offices with clients' sensitive data spread over different continents, CloudFileSync allows you to meet your data sovereignty requirements with ease.

Further, due to the nature of how CloudFileSync's storage agnostic architecture operates, data can be accessed in place in its legal jurisdiction, satisfying any applicable requirements that may require a level of data federation.

Violations of data residency regulations, whether intentional or accidental, can expose the custodian of the data to:
