InCountry and Yandex.Cloud Announce Data Residency-as-a-Service Partnership for Russia

Miami, Florida – WEBWIRE

InCountry, the world’s first global data residency-as-a-service platform, together with Yandex.Cloud, the largest domestic cloud provider in the Russian Federation, announced today an official partnership to help international businesses better distribute and localize data in the Russian Federation.

One of the primary obstacles for businesses looking to expand into the Russian market is compliance with the country’s data regulations, primarily Federal laws No. 152-FZ and 242-FZ. As 152-FZ requires companies to have a current copy of personal data of Russian citizens stored within Russian borders, the InCountry on Yandex.Cloud platform enables businesses to stay compliant and expand into the market, effectively serving as the gateway to Russia.

The InCountry platform offers a wide range of solutions for businesses that can distribute and localize sensitive and regulated data in accordance with local laws, no matter what the required deployment model is. With a wide range of SDKs and APIs, gateway and proxy services, the platform supports SaaS applications like Salesforce, ServiceNow, and Veeva Systems, as well as homegrown custom applications. InCountry’s focus on security and compliance has led to certification against the most stringent security and compliance standards, including PCI-DSS, ISO 27001, ISO 27017, ISO 27018, ISO 27701, and 152-FZ compliance.

Yandex, the largest search engine in Russia and one of Europe’s biggest tech companies, has branched out its brand into dozens of industries. One of the company’s more recent successes is Yandex.Cloud, launched in 2018. In just 3 years, Yandex.Cloud has become the largest Russian cloud service provider in the country, with a host of available data centers.

“We are very attentive to trust issues, always confirming compliance with industry security standards and legal requirements for the processing of personal data, which makes the InCountry on Yandex.Cloud platform the number one choice for international customers with the highest data protection requirements,” said Andrey Ivanov, Head of Security Solutions Strategy, Yandex.Cloud.

Thanks to this groundbreaking partnership with Yandex.Cloud, international companies, looking to enter Russia, and Russian companies expanding globally, can continue using their application of choice no matter where it’s deployed.

“Compliance with data privacy regulations shouldn’t feel like a burden for the business, especially when they’re embarking on an expansion. Yandex.Cloud is an important component of the InCountry ecosystem and we’re committed to deepening the partnership to deliver a simple, secure and integrated product experience to customers looking to serve the Russian market or expand from it,” said Peter Yared, Founder and CEO, InCountry.
