TrueVault Launches TrueVault Atlas Cloud

TrueVault has announced it has launched a new cloud-based version of TrueVault Atlas, the self-managed solution that generates automatic alerts when personal data is moved to a location where it should not be saved. TrueVault Atlas also includes automation tools to allow companies to automatically rectify issues with personal data, including erasing or exporting that data to prevent any compliance issues.

This is possible because TrueVault Atlas continuously indexes data in a range of different third-party systems such as SalesForce, Gmail, and databases such as MySQL and Postgres. All data is catalogued, allowing it to be quickly located when needed. Companies can therefore be certain that they know all locations where data is saved at all times. This is particularly important for any company that is required to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation. It ensures that if an EU citizen requests a copy of their personal data or exercises their right to be forgotten, all copies of that data can be quickly and easily found, and requests can be processed quickly.

The initial offering provided companies with full control over the deployment of the solution, but the company received feedback from customers calling for a SaaS version of the solution. In response to demand, TrueVault accelerated the timeline of its SaaS release and now two months after the initial launch, the cloud-based version has been launched. TrueVault Atlas Cloud gives companies the benefits of the TrueVault Atlas without adding to the administrative burden of their IT team.
