Secure your data

PetaSuite Protect prevents unauthorised access
to genomic data by applying FIPS 140-2
compliant AES-256 regional encryption. Multi
level granular access permissions control who has
access to any given file, or part of a file. Admins
and data stewards can control permissions using
the PetaSuite Protect Management Server and
can grant or revoke access in real-time.

Audit data use

Via the PetaSuite Protect Management Server users who have appropriate permissions can grant access on a granular basis to people within their organization, and outside. Once access has been granted and the data made available, the cryptographic ledger also records searchable information relating to how the data is accessed and used.

Demonstrate compliance

To be compliant with the relevant regulations, holders of genomic data must implement the necessary security protocols and demonstrate that those steps have been taken. PetaSuite Protect simplifies these tasks firstly by applying robust encryption to the data. Then, it creates records of who has access, and how that access is used, allowing data stewards to demonstrate that the appropriate measures have been taken.
