MongoDB takes steps toward governance in the era of GDPR

In this research note, Ovum Senior Analyst Paige Bartley addresses how MongoDB can help companies comply with new GDPR requirements. The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) puts new requirements on how companies anywhere in the world handle the personal data of EU citizens.

This report addresses how features of MongoDB can help organizations to:

  • Implement strong security controls to prevent data breaches
  • Explore and discover personal data to plan governance implementation
  • Restrict what types of personal data can be stored
  • Automatically expire data after a retention period
  • Preserve an audit trail of access to data

While complying with GDPR may seem onerous, it doesn’t mean that organizations need to slow down the pace of new app development. Read this research note to learn why MongoDB is the right database for applying data controls while remaining agile.

MongoDB tries to strike a balance between controls for governance and security and features for developer productivity, helping enable GDPR compliance without impeding business objectives.
