How it Works

1

Located in the same data center as Segment

2

Augment Segment’s existing collection process & specific fields into InCountry data stores

3

All data can be stored in a specific country. Logic can be applied to use existing data field such as “Country” to direct storage to multiple countries

4

InCountry traps all writes from the form and replaces existing fields with encrypted hashes that can be stored in Segment

5

When Segment reads the fields, they can be automatically replaced with the unredacted data when viewed in specific countries

6

The redacted data can still be searched using Segment’s search
