• Argo Data Vault

    A new wave of regulations mandating that organisations better protect personal data and make it available for inspection by citizens and other regulatory bodies is sweeping across the world.

    New international laws such as the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into effect in 2018 can enforce massive fines for organisations that fail to comply.

However, for organisations with intricate and complex processes, the ability to quickly re-engineer systems and key line of business applications is a daunting task. Technology is just one hurdle alongside the need to recruit and train the Data Protection Officers that will be vital in helping to meet the ongoing GDPR compliance requirements. 

An innovative industry first 

However, an innovative solution exists that can make it easier for organisations to meet many of the most challenging aspects of GDPR. At the heart of the Argo Data Vault is technology able to ingest files and emails across all tiers of storage including legacy backup tapes. This allows both metadata and full contents to be searched, selectively restored or archived into master index flies needed to meet the reporting requirements and actions required under GDPR.

The solution includes patented software developed by Index Engines, an information management company; Kaspersky Labs for security and policy enforcement and Argo Technologie petascale storage all running on a hyper-converged infrastructure.  The certified Argo Data Vault solution is deployed as a 12U rack installation and includes Bridgeworks WAN acceleration technology and Arista Network switches.
