Compliance is a primary consideration for the enterprise. From privacy to corporate governance to business practices and standards, regulation impacts so many aspects of corporate activity that it is a challenge for businesses just to keep up. Many organizations, such as those in the healthcare and financial sectors, are subject to so many types of regulation on so many levels, that selection of IT infrastructure – with both the flexibility and security to fully meet requirements – has become crucially important. As such, Array products and solutions are designed to both enable and maintain compliance across a broad range of industry and governmental regulations.
Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) & Graham-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
Strict government demands on the financial industry mandate that banks secure access to sensitive banking and customer data. The Graham-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999, Sarbanes-Oxley and the Basel II Accord all mandate strict controls on how data is handled and protected by financial institutions. Array helps financial institutions meet these demanding regulations with its family of purpose-built application, desktop and cloud service delivery solutions.
