Aerohive Networks™, a Cloud Networking leader, today announced it has enhanced its Public, Private, and Portable Cloud networking architecture and the HiveManager network management application to address compliance requirements resulting from the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
GDPR is the EU’s response to growing public concern about the importance of personal data protection. It aims to strengthen the security and protection of personal data by giving EU residents a higher degree of control over of their personal data, and how it is used in the digital economy. It applies to all organizations that collect, handle and process personal data of EU residents, independent of the organization’s location.
Aerohive welcomes GDPR and has implemented a comprehensive set of compliance-enabling new functionality in Aerohive’s HiveManager network management system (NMS) developed to assist customers and partners in addressing the “rights to request” and “rights to forget” that are stipulated by GDPR. It accomplishes this by searching for, downloading, editing and deleting personal data that may be present in HiveManager, as well as by logging these activities and generating GDPR audit reports. An example of these features is shown in the screenshot.
