Integration will increase institution’s level of governance and regulatory controls over sensitive data stored in the cloud
OTTAWA, ON – Jan. 30, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Leonovus, a cloud solutions software provider, today announced that its software-defined object storage solution (SDOSS) is in trials by one of the largest public colleges in North America to ensure its sensitive data meets compliance standards and remains secure within the cloud. This partnership comes as Leonovus continues to build momentum in the education market as a leading cloud solutions provider for secure, compliant data storage. Leonovus will begin with the institution’s multi-cloud environment in late February 2017, with the potential of being implemented into the other 24 post-secondary schools within its peer network over the next 24 months.
Similar to medium and large, public or private enterprises, the education market faces many of the same challenges when it comes to data governance, risk management and compliance (GRC). Leonovus allows large educational institutions to maintain the governance and regulatory controls that are often lost when such institutions move their sensitive data from a data center to the cloud.
“Today’s colleges and universities see the need to move extensive credit card data from their data centers to the cloud. What’s kept them stagnant unfortunately, is the fear of risking compliance in the process,” said Michael Gaffney, chairman and CEO of Leonovus. “Because the nature of the data being stored, risking PCI and HIPPA compliance or Privacy Act guidelines isn’t an option. Leonovus not only allows them to eliminate this long-time challenge and know their data is secure, but it reduces the institution’s operating and capital costs as well.”
In addition to its GRC-focused design, Leonovus is software and hardware agnostic – allowing educational institutions to utilize the idle hardware they already have rather than having to allocate additional budget to hardware solely dedicated to storing their sensitive credit card data.
With a string of notable educational institutions currently in progress, Leonovus is leveraging its unique, patented architecture to build upon this partnership and carve out a significant area of its business dedicated to the education market over the next three months.
