How it Works

Located in the same data center as Segment
Augment Segment’s existing collection process & specific fields into InCountry data stores
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
InCountry traps all writes from the form and replaces existing fields with encrypted hashes that can be stored in Segment
When Segment reads the fields, they can be automatically replaced with the unredacted data when viewed in specific countries
The redacted data can still be searched using Segment’s search
