Perspecsys are a vendor offering technologies for ‘Cloud Privacy By Design’ best practices, or what they call ‘Cloud Data Protection’.
They are pioneering a key segment of the Cloud industry, the ‘On-Site Cloud Gateway’ device.
Although Cloud value is conveyed by the centralized and shared hosting of applications, there are a number of factors that will require some form of ‘Cloud Router’ to be installed on the client site too.
Perspecsys cater for Cloud Data Privacy, meaning the dreaded issue of risks like the Patriot Act exposing your data to search and seizure, achieved by encrypting your data prior to it being ‘uploaded to the Cloud’, including data inputs to SaaS like Salesforce.com
This enables compliance with regulations like FIPS 140-2, a robust set of security standards defined by the USA Government, which in turn provides a foundation for achieving compliance with many other industry programs, like HIPAA and HITECH for Healthcare.
