In my role as product leader at iGrafx, I have had the opportunity to work with many of the most regulatorily complex and security conscious enterprises in the world. My team is the one that receives the 100+ questions RFIs and I regularly fly around the world to meet with security teams. And very often the questions I face are around where our SaaS solution is hosted, and how it is architected.
It’s important to note that I actually enjoy these conversations, because I am a big advocate of SaaS – when it is done correctly. And based on these statistics, so are most enterprises. According to Forbes, 83% of enterprise workloads will be in the cloud by 2020, and 94% of enterprises are already using cloud for some portions of their business.
However, not all cloud solutions are created equally, and from a security perspective, many alternatives leave quite a bit to be desired. The iGrafx cloud platform was been designed from the outset to adhere to the most stringent security requirements. For starters, we chose Microsoft Azure as our hyperscale cloud provider, because they are in more regions than alternatives offered by other providers (54 regions in 140 countries), and they employ incredibly stringent standards for: network infrastructure, hardware & firmware and testing & monitoring. Additionally, they offer the broadest set of compliance certifications, with more than 90 available right out of the box, including a range of ISO, SOC, U.S. government, country specific and industry specific certifications and attestations.
At iGrafx we’ve built upon this foundation to offer the most secure business transformation platform in the industry. Here are some notable examples:
Bottom line, no enterprise or SaaS vendor can afford to have their head in the clouds when it comes to data security. Data privacy took center stage in May 2018 with GDPR, and the focus will only intensify. Here’s a fun infographic that illustrates how iGrafx stacks up with “the other guy” from a security perspective, as well as four other important areas.
