Intralinks Makes Further Strategic Investment in Europe

Intralinks (NYSE:IL), a secure content collaboration company, today announces further strategic investment and client momentum in Europe, as the company opens a second European datacenter, located in Frankfurt. This presence in Germany is part of the Intralinks Trust Perimeter, which gives customers what they need to define their organizational perimeter, as their data moves around the world.

“Continental Europe is an extremely strategic location for us, especially after the “Brexit” decision. Our customers are thinking about data privacy more than ever before. Once the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is implemented, there will be thousands more data privacy officers in Europe, tasked with protecting personally identifiable information. But as the business boundaries are changing in a more connected world, this is a very difficult task,” said Ron Hovsepian, Chief Executive Officer, Intralinks.

The Intralinks Trust Perimeter allows Intralinks customers to ‘define your own perimeter’: companies decide how information is protected as it leaves the firewall and moves around the world, while meeting growing data privacy demands. To do this, Intralinks provides its customers with a number of capabilities to choose from.

Intralinks has created an industry-leading platform architecture, which includes advanced technology called Intralinks Distributed Content Nodes, deployed in Germany. This technology provides customers with control over where data is located. With this deployment, Intralinks’ customers’ most valuable data does not leave Continental Europe.

As part of the Intralinks Trust Perimeter, Intralinks customers can also choose:

  • Where their encryption keys reside
    Intralinks was the first-to-market with the ground-breaking technology Customer Managed Encryption Keys (CMK). This provides customers with full and sole control over the ability to manage the encryption keys used to protect their data in the cloud.
  • How sensitive information is consumed, downloaded and edited at the file level around the world
    Intralinks’ Information Rights Management (IRM) protects customers’ sensitive files wherever they are in the world, and on any device. IRM attaches control to files so that they can be shared, tracked, monitored and revoked as needed. It offers plug-in free security which travels with the document wherever it goes.
  • The legal options to ensure compliance with global data privacy regulations
    Intralinks is one of the first wave of companies to certify to the new EU-US Privacy Shield programme, giving its customers more legal options for transferring data outside of Europe, as well as EU model clauses.

“Businesses need to know how they can retain control of their information once it leaves the traditional firewall. The Intralinks Trust Perimeter gives customers what they need to define a new, global perimeter around their information, while meeting rigorous data protection standards,” concludes Hovsepian.

In 2016 alone, many major European firms have worked with Intralinks. These include Statoil and Tata Steel. 2016 has also seen Intralinks working on exciting new projects with customers to support their digital transformation efforts, including Lloyds Banking Group.

In Intralinks’ 20-year history, over 4.1 million business users across the world have used the platform.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems.
