MTS has launched a cloud-based service to help businesses to meet Russian regulatory data storage requirements.

The offering allows customers to store their information systems involved in collecting and processing personal data, providing tools for managing personnel, corporate content and customer relationships.

It also includes solutions to provide assistance in drafting documentation for approval by authorities.

MTS said target customers include banks, insurance companies, medical organisations, logistics companies and retailers with loyalty programmes.

The solution is built around MTS’s secure cloud system #CloudMTS which is based on the operator’s own data centres as well as VMware virtual platforms. The solution has built-in security through firewalls, anti-virus and threat analysis software.

Vladimir Khrenkov, Director of Innovation Development at MTS, said: “Russian business demand for better information security systems continues to grow. ‘Uberisation’ and digitalisation are reshaping traditional solutions in this industry.

“As one of the leading suppliers of innovative digital solutions, MTS is able to enter this market with a comprehensive solution that provides reliable protection from threats, and reduce costs for customers through utilising their own IT equipment.

“Our cloud service capabilities are constantly expanding and we are prioritising improving them further by engaging with the latest industry developments.”

MTS launched #CloudMTS in March last year in order to help big businesses reduce the capital expenses involved in building and maintaining IT infrastructure.

MTS’s VP of Marketing, Vyacheslav Nikolaev, told European Communications in March that the industry needs to move into areas such as IT if it is to grow faster.
