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.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
"We are a monitoring company. We work with Salesforce, BBC, and quite a few other big logos. We basically provide monitoring for them, structure for their cloud services and we fit into the DevOps world" explained David Gildeh, Co-founder and CEO of Outlyer, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input.
