AWS compliance and data security for the digital enterprise.
AWS provides you with the power to have near-instant access to your data. And we provide you with the cloud-native backup & recovery solution to protect it. With Cloud Protection Manager your data never leaves the cloud.
As Cloud Protection Manager runs as an instance in AWS it automatically falls under their strict security and compliance standards. Our partnership with AWS means that CPM users benefit from a highly secure network and data center infrastructure. By leveraging AWS’s native snapshot capabilities you have full visibility of your backups and the ability to restore at a moment’s notice.
CPM is designed for multi-tenancy, allowing you to protect multiple AWS accounts from a single console. To enhance environment access control, CPM supports IAM roles for secure cross-account federation and access, as well as IAM credentials. CPM also enables creation of multiple users, each managing multiple AWS accounts containing multiple instances.
Running on a dedicated instance in your EC2 environment, CPM ensures users have complete control by configuring security groups and delegating access to perform backups and restores. All communication to and from the CPM Server is encrypted providing round-the-clock data protection.
CPM supports the use of RESTful APIs, giving you the ability to integrate the console with other applications and automate your entire backup and recovery process. Our consolidated Reports tab allows you to customize vital information and easily identify resources not covered by CPM policies. In addition, CloudFormation saves you valuable time during the onboarding process by enabling you to install and configure your entire infrastructure in one click.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) expands the rights of individuals in the EU and regulates how their data is collected, used and processed. Even if your business is not located in the EU, GDPR will likely impact data you have stored in the cloud. Luckily, CPM runs on an instance inside your AWS environment and automatically falls under the strict compliance measures set by AWS. CPM gives you the added ability to restrict usage of specific regions, therefore reducing the risk of copying data to a non-EU region and compromising your GDPR compliance.
