Compliance and Real-time Innovation in India

Compliance and Real-time Innovation in India social.jpeg

All around the world, governments are racing to protect their citizens’ privacy in response to the ubiquity of digital interactions and the influence of data collection. As software providers aim to leverage their user data to improve their products and deliver more relevant and timely experiences to customers, consumers want to make sure that they have a choice in how their data is used, and their governments support that desire. In 2018, the EU passed GDPR, and it’s no surprise that other governments are following suit. India is looking to better protect its citizens with regulations that require foreign companies to store data generated in India locally, within the country.

PubNub has a rich history of supporting customer needs around security, privacy, and regulations, and supporting our customers in India is right up that alley. Building upon the roll-out of our services via the Mumbai Point-of-Presence (POP), PubNub now supports customers’ need and ability to store data locally in India. This lets customers meet the regulatory requirements that are now table stakes for their operations in the country. 

Especially for those who want to innovate and use the best technologies available, it’s critical that the technologies and vendors they work with are able to support their India-specific needs. Otherwise, they will be left to find less efficient, less effective ways to solve their core problem, spending effort that should go to providing high-quality solutions and service

The Impact on Customers

The healthcare and financial services sectors of India are most heavily impacted by this regulation, as they handle the most personal and confidential information about those that they serve. In order to do business and use data to innovate within the country, they are on the front lines of navigating the new regulations. With PubNub, these customers are completely covered when it comes to storing data locally. There’s no need to wonder whether data will be protected or stored somewhere else.

How are customers using PubNub in healthcare and financial services in compliance with regulation?
