“Continental Europe is an extremely strategic location for us,
especially after the “Brexit” decision. Our customers are thinking about
data privacy more than ever before. Once the General Data Protection
Regulation (GDPR) is implemented, there will be thousands more data
privacy officers in Europe, tasked with protecting personally
identifiable information. But as the business boundaries are changing in
a more connected world, this is a very difficult task,” said Ron
Hovsepian, Chief Executive Officer, Intralinks.
The Intralinks Trust Perimeter allows Intralinks customers to ‘define
your own perimeter’: companies decide how information is protected as it
leaves the firewall and moves around the world, while meeting growing
data privacy demands. To do this, Intralinks provides its customers with
a number of capabilities to choose from.
Intralinks has created an industry-leading platform architecture, which
includes advanced technology called Intralinks Distributed Content Nodes™,
deployed in Germany. This technology provides customers with control
over where data is located. With this deployment, Intralinks’ customers’
most valuable data does not leave Continental Europe.

file level around the world
Intralinks’ Information Rights
Management (IRM) protects customers’ sensitive files wherever they are
in the world, and on any device. IRM attaches control to files so that
they can be shared, tracked, monitored and revoked as needed. It

The legal options to ensure compliance with global data privacy
Intralinks is one of the first wave of companies
to certify to the new EU-US Privacy Shield programme, giving its
customers more legal options for transferring data outside of Europe,
as well as EU model clauses.
“Businesses need to know how they can retain control of their
information once it leaves the traditional firewall. The Intralinks
Trust Perimeter gives customers what they need to define a new, global
perimeter around their information, while meeting rigorous data
protection standards,” concludes Hovsepian.
In 2016 alone, many major European firms have worked with Intralinks.
These include Statoil and Tata Steel. 2016 has also seen Intralinks
working on exciting new projects with customers to support their digital
transformation efforts, including Lloyds Banking Group.
In Intralinks’ 20-year history, over 4.1 million business users across
the world have used the platform.
