monday.com Work OS enters new arena: launching EU data region in Germany
monday.com Work OS powers any team in any industry to create the solutions they need to run every aspect of their work. With more than 115,000 paying customers relying on our platform, safeguarding their data and privacy is always at the forefront of our minds.
And that’s why with the growing need to comply with our enterprise customers’ local privacy laws and regulations, we’re opening up data centers outside of the US, starting with a new EU data region in Frankfurt, Germany.
This new data region, operated by Amazon Web Services (AWS), allows monday.com enterprise customers with European data residency requirements to store their data in Germany.
Customers who select the EU data region as their region of choice will have the ability to store data within the European Union’s borders and also enjoy the added benefit of faster access to the monday.com platform.
“As the second-largest software company in Germany, data security is extremely important to us. Our experts checked to make sure the Enterprise plan met all of the privacy and compliance regulations. And we can certainly say that monday.com is enterprise-ready in this context.”
Bill Carney, VP Growth Marketing, Software AG
