Enterprises and organisations within EU can with the new REC.VC Site in Frankfurt, Germany, rest assure that all their REC.VC recorded meetings are securely processed, stored and backed up within EU.

“The EU General Data Protection Regulation is probably one of the hottest potatoes for European CIOs these days,” said Kjell Oksendal, CMO and SVP Global Alliances, MNS. “As a global cloud provider we designed the cloud service so that each REC.VC Site is autonomous and fully redundant with respect to failover and backup. When EU customers select to use the REC.VC Site in Frankfurt, we guarantee that their video recordings never will be processed, stored and backed up outside the Frankfurt Site by MNS.” More: Press release
