September 18, 2018 — Kanata, ON — HubStor today announced that its software is compatible with Immutable Storage for Microsoft Azure Blobs, a new data protection and compliance feature available in Azure that satisfies write-once-read-many (WORM) requirements of organizations regulated by SEC, CFTC, FINRA, Mifid II, and others. Immutable storage for Azure Blobs uniquely provides these protections across all tiers of blob storage: hot, cool, and archive.
HubStor delivers immutable storage within its cloud data management service. By integrating with the Immutable Storage for Azure Blobs, HubStor customers benefit from extra assurance of the more secure state because immutability is enforced by the cloud technology stack.
“Cloud innovation is simplifying the way IT leaders solve business problems,” said Brad Janes, VP of Product Management at HubStor. “Immutable Storage for Microsoft Azure Blobs with HubStor is a great example of how the cloud delivers transformation because it is a more convenient and affordable way to deliver WORM storage compared to traditional hardware-centric approaches on premises.”
Organizations in financial services, healthcare, life sciences and medical industries use HubStor to archive, manage, and protect critical data. Broker-dealers under SEC/FINRA compliance will typically leverage HubStor for long-term retention for email communications, database backups, books and records, marketing data, and electronic messages. Healthcare providers and research-based organizations use HubStor for HIPAA and FDA data retention compliance of their medical images, genomics studies, clinical-trial related data, and patient health information. Tamper-proof requirements for sensitive data types such as these can be met using cloud technologies that offer agility to the business.
“Immutable Storage for Microsoft Azure Blobs helps ensure that data cannot be modified or deleted by any user including those with account administrative privileges,” said Tad Brockway, General Manager, Azure Storage at Microsoft Corp. “Partners such as HubStor help make it easier for organizations to operate in the cloud while adding a layer of data management sophistication that supports enterprise-level data governance requirements.”
