Data stored in the cloud is often more secure than storing data in an office. Data in an office is often stored on local laptops, USB keys, and office servers. This data is unencrypted by default, meaning anyone with physical access to the offices can access the data.
3D Repo deploys and maintains instances of the platform in several locations as required by our clients including the UK, Canada, and on-premise in private deployments.
Where 3D Repo directly operates the infrastructure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is used to provide the cloud platform. All activity is configured to operate inside the relevant AWS region, aligning with data residency requirements. In the UK, all company data is stored within the UK AWS region.
3D Repo users benefit from both encryption and high levels of physical security to protect their data.
As an open-source platform, 3D Repo allows users to inspect the platform’s operating code and be reassured by the operating principles. The software can be downloaded and operated in 10, 20 or even 100 years’ time.
