-- Additional European Facility to Expand Security, Compliance, and Data Storage Capabilities for Local Customers; Complements Existing Security Initiatives Such as CMK and IRM
NEW YORK, March 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Intralinks® Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: IL), a leading, global SaaS provider of secure enterprise content collaboration solutions, today announced expansion plans to add a new data center in Germany. This will be Intralinks' second European data center and will help customers maintain compliance with national data sovereignty laws and regulations, and is part of the company's continuing expansion in Europe to meet growing demand for secure enterprise content collaboration. With this additional data center, Intralinks customers will be able to choose among US, UK, and German data centers for information storage. Intralinks expects to launch the German data center in Q4 2015.
"The growing list of international regulations requires companies to store their data in particular jurisdictions for both privacy and compliance purposes," said Richard Edwards, principle research analyst at Ovum. "For some organizations, the European Union is very specific about where a company's data may reside. Intralinks' German data center will enable customers to meet local regulations and keep data nearby."
Enterprises operating in Europe work with increasingly stringent data governance requirements in order to address privacy and security. This is especially relevant when adopting software-as-a-service or cloud-based solutions. Intralinks is a leader among global SaaS vendors in managing its customers' data sovereignty requirements. In addition to expanding geographic hosting options, Intralinks is the first content collaboration vendor to empower customers to manage their own data encryption keys – moving control of information to the customer. Furthermore, Intralinks offers advanced Information Rights Management (IRM) capabilities, which allow customers to control their content even after it is shared or distributed to third parties. Taken together, these capabilities allow even the most regulated global enterprises to use Intralinks for sharing and collaborating on high-risk information and documents.
"Any global company that is serious about European business needs to understand the regulations and sensitivities of these markets, and have facilities for storing data in region," said Dave Wareham, SVP EMEA, Intralinks. "Our customers need local data storage to meet increasingly stringent regulatory demands, and because we are committed to the global collaboration market, we are expanding with a German data center."
