General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is Europe’s new framework for data protection laws, the purpose of which is safeguarding the rights of individuals, giving people better access to the information companies hold about them, more control over their personal information and what that data can be used for. Although this initiative started in the European Union, any company that markets goods or services to EU residents, regardless of where the company is based, is obligated to comply with the GDPR mandate as of May 25, 2018. Nlytes Compute Infrastructure Management Suite improves compliance by providing the ability to track within the physical infrastructure where the data resides, whether it is encrypted and by what method, the means in which the data is transported, and who has interacted with the data.
The GDPR fundamentals Nlytes DCIM solution tracks include:
- Where the critical data is located, geographic location, devices servers/storage/network
- Where the data is replicated, geographic location, devices servers/storage/network
- What, and if, security tools are deployed on identified devices and enabled
- Data breach notifications i.e. indicating what data subjects data ran on what assets
- Identification of secondary locations of infrastructure for the safe handling of data transporting across borders
