You have been storing vast amounts of greenhouse crop production data in your own systems for years. Connecting these systems to the cloud unlocks new possibilities for further innovations. Since our technology products and services control processes that are vital to your business, we know that the security of these products and services - and the data that they contain - is critical.
By leaving the data center and (physical) infrastructure security to the experts at Microsoft, Priva can focus on developing secure, high-value cloud services built on the Microsoft Azure platform. During the development and operation of cloud services, we adhere to secure design principles and best practices (e.g. least privilege and defense in depth). Our cloud and security architects work closely together with the development teams to ensure all cloud services are secure by design.
Microsoft is the provider of the technical platform Azure on which our applications are built. We chose Azure because of the extensive security measures that Microsoft has taken and the standard components that they provide.
‘Store in the cloud’ is a service model in which data is transmitted and stored on remote servers, rather than being stored on a local drive or server. Data stored in the cloud is maintained, managed and backed up centrally.
It is similar to keeping your money in a bank account; Priva ensures that your greenhouse data is stored securely and provides you with access. You retain full ownership of your greenhouse data as transferred to the Priva cloud via the gateway.
At Priva, we aim to live up to the trust you and our other customers place in us by using our products and services. We are committed to preventing unauthorized access to, disclosure or otherwise undesired use of greenhouse-related and personal data. Therefore, we only process your data when we are permitted to do so by you. Priva has taken organizational and technical measures in order to protect our products and services against the risks inherent in online data transfer and the processing of your data. Of course, Priva also abides by the regulatory requirements concerning the confidentiality of personal data that we process according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
As soon as you have installed a gateway and your production facility is cloud connected, the greenhouse data from your Connext, Compact CC or Compass process computer will be stored in the Priva cloud. Your data is only accessible to authorized accounts and services.
If the internet connection fails, the greenhouse data is saved in temporary local data storage. The data will be uploaded to the cloud as soon as the connection is re-established.
