In a brief press release Huawei has announced that Huawei FusionInsight has been awarded an “ePrivacy Seal” from ePrivacy for compliance with both EU and German data protection laws and regulations. FusionInsight is Huawei’s Hadoop based enterprise grade DaaS (Data-as-a-Service) platform. With the announcement of the ePrivacy Seal they will no doubt hope to convince European companies of the legitimacy of the product for use in Europe.
As of writing Huawei have not yet been listed on the ePrivacy website. When listed they will be joining a number of other companies in achieving the ePrivacy Seal EU Version including Adjust, Krux digital, Criteo SA, Semasio GmbH, Applift GmbH, Opera Mediaworks Gmbh and Rocket Fuel. Achieving this is not a simple task and it took Huawei four months to complete the legal and technical evaluations.
There are five phases required to complete the certification:
The FusionInsight platform gives Enterprises a platform for mass data storage, query, and analytics to scale their Big Data requirements rapidly. With an open architecture FusionInsight can run on standard x86 servers. This latest announcement will give enterprises the surety that the platform can meet data protection requirements within the EU, including Germany which has the tightest regulation.
Aimed at the Financial and Mobile industry FusionInsight includes technology for authentication and authorization, secure transmission, generalization, data encryption, and flexible use of data security and privacy protection policies. The solution meets the legislative and technical privacy requirements of more than 100 countries and the ePrivacy Seal proves this point within the EU.
