Improving Data Security, Privacy, and Compliance with Sovereign Cloud
VMware Sovereign Cloud helps organizations comply with data privacy laws by partnering with local cloud providers to build sovereign clouds based on VMware’s framework that are based entirely within a local jurisdiction. These VMware Cloud Verified partners have local staff with security clearances (if required) and expertise with local laws to ensure the compliance of the sovereign cloud environment. These providers offer continuous compliance monitoring, reporting, and remediation so data follows local and industry regulations. Data security is also a sovereign cloud requirement. VMware partners must include security controls as part of the 20-point self-attestation process. A common security policy framework provides consistent security, along with zero trust principles and micro segmentation. Encryption of data both at rest and in transit further protects data from security threats.
