With an increasingly distributed workforce, and more and more cloud-based applications available to support global enterprises, data storage has risen in importance as well as complexity. Many organizations today face corporate policies, regulatory requirements, and contractual agreements with their clients and customers that guide where data is required to be stored for the applications that power their business.
To support our customers in highly regulated industries and geographies, we are excited to now offer regional data residency for MURAL. This is the latest example of MURAL's continued investment in the realm of security and compliance, and meeting the evolving needs of global businesses with enterprise-grade solutions.
What is data residency?
Data residency refers to the ability to select the geographic location in which certain data from cloud-based applications is stored.
What's MURAL's approach?
MURAL's data residency capabilities enable Enterprise plan customers to designate the region where data in a mural is stored — selecting from North America, Europe, or Asia-Pacific regions — to help them meet corporate policies and compliance requirements globally. It can be customized on a workspace-by-workspace basis.
Offering this granular level of control allows geographically dispersed teams, such as consultancies working with clients abroad, to securely store their visual collaboration data locally while unlocking the full benefits of the MURAL platform globally.
Everything existing Enterprise plan customers need to know
Data residency is offered at no additional cost to Enterprise plan customers and can be set up during the creation of a new workspace with help from your Customer Success partner. Company admins are also able to gain visibility into where data is stored on a per-workspace basis.
