InCountry launches comprehensive data residency and sovereignty solutions for analytics and business intelligence

InCountry for Analytics facilitates global analytics insights for multinational enterprises while providing detailed country-specific analytics for local teams

Today, at the International Conference on Big Data Analytics (ICBDA) in Tokyo, Japan, InCountry unveiled its latest product, InCountry for Analytics. The new product enables multinational corporations to seamlessly manage global analytics and deliver regulated data to local teams with compliance at the forefront. InCountry’s holistic approach ensures the secure delivery of global analytics and insights using anonymized regulated data, easing the complexities of cross-border data management. Moreover, the platform enhances local analytics capabilities by integrating locally regulated data with international datasets. This unique combination affords companies the ability to fully utilize their data on both a global and local scale, in strict compliance with data residency and sovereignty laws.

InCountry offers proactive redaction of regulated data prior to crossing borders into the data pipeline. The platform seamlessly integrates with the client libraries of Customer Data Platforms (CDPs) at their origin, such as Salesforce Data Cloud, Segment, mParticle, and Lytics, ensuring a unified data ecosystem. With the integration of a Kafka Processor, InCountry dynamically redacts and anonymizes personally identifiable information (PII), enhancing data privacy and compliance in real-time. A reliable message queue system is in place to ensure consistent data delivery, even over networks that are less dependable. Furthermore, InCountry provides the capability to preprocess and postprocess data payloads through the InCountry point-of-presence, offering an unmatched level of control and security for businesses operating on a global scale.

InCountry integrates with batch loading mechanisms to anonymize regulated data before it crosses international borders. This enables organizations to operate a global data warehouse or data lake without the compliance burden of cross-border regulated data. InCountry efficiently redacts and anonymizes regulated data in the transformation step of ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) tools, including Mulesoft, Pentaho, and Informatica. Additionally, InCountry seamlessly integrates with the bulk data loading mechanisms for Databricks, Snowflake, Teradata, Google BigQuery, Amazon Redshift, and Azure Data Warehouse, before the data crosses borders. This advanced functionality allows companies to maintain global data operations while adhering to data privacy regulations.

InCountry’s points-of-presence serve as secure storage locations for local data, embodying a state-of-the-art architecture that ensures maximum data protection and accessibility. These facilities feature a flexible schema that accommodates multiple tables, fields, and indices, tailored to meet diverse data storage needs. Security is further enhanced through policy-based access control, enabling precise query filtering and field masking for robust data privacy. Additionally, fine-grained access control mechanisms are in place, allowing for detailed verification against a system of record back-end application to determine user access privileges to specific rows and fields. The system also supports flexible field masking, tokenization, and hashing, alongside queryable encryption that adheres to industry standards, ensuring that data is not only secure but also accessible in compliance with global data residency regulations.

Global business intelligence and reporting tools continue functioning seamlessly, producing essential reports like pipeline and aggregate revenue analyses that utilize anonymized regulated data to comply with regulations. Simultaneously, reports and dashboards can perform direct queries on local, in-country data sources to obtain real-time, aggregated statistics, delivering data immediacy while preserving data sovereignty.

Conduct local analytics by merging locally regulated data with global datasets, allowing local users to generate dashboards and reports that incorporate both types of data from global warehouses and data lakes. This approach enhances local business intelligence capabilities, fully supporting systems such as Microsoft Power BI, Tableau, Metabase, and Redash, to provide comprehensive insights that include regulated data from within a country.

As businesses operate on an increasingly complicated global scale, InCountry for Analytics offers the security, compliance, and operational excellence required to turn the challenge of data residency and sovereignty into a strategic advantage.
