What are public sector certified solutions?

Public sector certified solutions are data hosting solutions specifically designed for the public sector, and operators of vital importance. They help organizations meet governmental and administrative certification requirements. This is especially important for any companies that handle healthcare data, financial data, or public-sector data – all of which have highly specific compliance requirements that must be adhered to.

This includes a range of industry-specific certifications, that any hosting solutions – either bare-metal or virtualized – used for these purposes must have earned. For example, PCI DSS compliance is vital for any organizations that process payment card data, while HDS certification is required for hosting healthcare data. There are also numerous local and international regulations regarding data protection and sovereignty that must be adhered to (the GDPR in Europe and the Cloud Act in the USA, for instance).

The validation processes for these various certifications can potentially be complex and time-consuming, and therefore presents a significant challenge for international companies, and those with highly specific industry requirements. An international cloud provider – such as OVHcloud – can offer a range of tailored public sector solutions, designed around specific local regulations. This will help take all the stress out of this process, ensuring you stay fully compliant in every location in which you operate, or plan on operating.

Why are public sector and certified solutions important for your organization?

Organizations in numerous industries, all over the world, are now required to adhere to specific regulations and certifications in order to operate in a safe, secure and legal way.
