Automation technology firm Laiye has partnered with Microsoft to provide UK and EU customers with automation capabilities to enable them to comply with data laws such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
“Customers want access to Laiye’s world leading technology and they also want control over how and where their valuable internal data is processed,” said Ronen Lamdan, international CEO of Laiye. “Our Microsoft Azure partnership brings together the momentum and players in the cloud hosting and intelligent automation markets together in one easy-to-buy package. Laiye is sending a clear message of intent to legacy players to up their game, or move aside.”
Laiye customers can now use the Microsoft Azure cloud to safely process their data in line with regional, national and international privacy laws.
“Data privacy is a hot-button issue, and strict compliance laws make lawful processing of this data essential,” said Doreen Yun, general manager of partners and alliances at Microsoft. “We are delighted that Laiye has recognised the ability of the Azure platform to provide UK customers with safe, seamless access to its services. As the cloud platform for space stations, start-ups and everything in between, we look forward to assisting innovative organisations with reaping the benefits of intelligent automation by providing them with world-class cloud hosting.”
