Any business which collects or processes personally identifiable information (PII) of European Citizens is subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as of 25th May 2018.
As a Data Controller, it’s your responsibility to ensure that Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is stored and transferred in a secure manner.
Any organisation storing, accessing or receiving the PII on your behalf is a Data Processor. You, and they, must ensure that they act in compliance with the GDPR legislation while storing, transferring or accessing the PII.
While Maytech does not view, use or access your data, if PII is to be stored on our systems we are classed as a Data Processor. As such, Maytech will provide a Data Processing Agreement which we will both sign to confirm that appropriate controls and systems are in place for the relevant data processing activities we undertake on your behalf. This demonstrates you have carried out your obligations under GDPR in relation to the secure storage and transfer of your sensitive PII data.
As a specialist secure file sharing company, Maytech takes security very seriously. We are compliant with the stipulations within the GDPR, and this pre-dates the GDPR legislation itself.
Quatrix®, our file sharing solution, addresses security concerns arising from unauthorised file sharing. It does this by providing a professional, own-branded solution that end users want to use, reducing the risk of uncontrolled file transfers via platforms with weaker security practices.
With Maytech you know exactly where your data resides at all times, who has access to it, and you can be confident that it’s stored safely within a secure and professionally managed platform.
Quatrix manages file sharing for organisations in 35 industries across 60 countries, working with customers as diverse as Governments to Big Pharma and Enterprises of all sizes which require fast and secure file sharing.
To maintain the highest levels of security compliance, Quatrix meets the stringent requirements of a range of relevant accreditations:
In addition, services are also scanned daily for over 40,000+ security threats and vulnerabilities with McAfee Secure, and customers can also arrange their own penetration test should this be a necessary requirement.
Whether sharing files online via Quatrix, transferring bulk data via SFTP or using our Outlook plugin our service keeps your data safe while at rest and in transit. Read on to find out more about Quatrix security features:
