Lipps also cited Asigra as a successful cloud backup provider.
“Clients today leverage a number of disparate cloud applications that require interoperability with each other, including access to documents and data stored in the cloud,” Howard said. “So, cloud storage providers must interoperate with these third-party SaaS applications through API integrations. From a security perspective, these storage providers must enable enterprises to monitor, manage and protect data through integration with identity and access management solutions, cloud access security brokers and other security solutions.”
Howard cited Box as a cutting-edge provider. Box recently announced it will allow British customers to choose to store all of their data in the United Kingdom, avoiding concerns over data transfers to and from the European Union after Brexit. It has launched a “UK Zone” which uses data centers in London and Cardiff to store customer data, avoiding any files being sent to servers overseas.
