Doxis4 encryption: a secure alternative for data protection

(October 19, 2015 - Bonn) Since the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that the “Safe Harbor” agreement is invalid, a state of legal limbo has prevailed in that no clear data protection regulations now exist regarding the secure exchange of personal data between the EU and the US. With SER’s Doxis4 solution, however, organisations can stay on the right track, as its built-in encryption facility enables data to be exchanged securely – even in the cloud – despite the current legal uncertainties.

Using the iECM Doxis4 Suite organisations can ensure that information, including personal data, is exchanged securely and in compliance with data protection regulations. This is because the SER solution provides effective protective mechanisms and highly secure encryption technologies for the archiving and storage of organisational data and documents.

Doxis4 thereby ensures that data can be encrypted in a process of asynchronous replication to the cloud. Prior to being transferred, the content is encoded at the local data centre with a secure AES-256 key specific to the organisation concerned. As a result, the information is not subject to statutory data protection regulations and cannot be read by the cloud operator

To avoid becoming dependent on particular external providers, this scenario excludes the possibility of a “cloud vendor lock-in”, as Doxis4 is can replicate the content subsequently even if a different cloud provider is used. The same process also takes place with the locally stored documents, avoiding any need for the content of those documents to be recreated by the previous cloud provider.
