This week, ManageEngine, the IT management company announced the opening of its two new data centers in the European Union (EU). The data centers are located in Amsterdam and Dublin.
The company says that the growth of cloud adoption in Europe is causing software vendors to take steps to protect customer data. To remove security concerns associated with the cloud, the company claims that the new ManageEngine data centers are certified Service Organization Controls (SOC) Type II.
Service Organization Controls are a series of accounting standards that measure the control of financial information for a service organization. A type II is a report on policies and procedures placed in operation and tests of operating effectiveness for a period of time
Rajesh Ganesan, Director of Product Management, ManageEngine said:
Our European customers are subject to some of the world’s strictest data privacy regulations, which apply to both on-premises and cloud applications.
Our on-premises apps have maintained the highest degree of data privacy and regulatory compliance for years. With our new EU data centers, we’ve set the same standard for our cloud apps and eliminated the privacy barrier to adopting our cloud-based IT management solutions.
ManageEngine also stated that Mobile Device Manager Plus, the company’s enterprise mobility management software, will be accessible from the EU data centers beginning February 2017.
