Europe Data Center Openings Announced By Fieldglass

Fieldglass, a subsidiary of SAP, announced in early March that it had launched three new Europe data centers.

German enterprise software company SAP bought Illinois-based Fieldglass last year in an effort to expand its SaaS capabilities. Now the company has opened three fully redundant facilities in the continent. The new sites – a U.K. data center, Netherlands data center and Germany data center – will all be hosted by ServerCentral. The partnership between the two companies was established and proven in Fieldglass' U.S. data centers and will now provide improved management in the company's European facilities.

"We are redoubling our commitment to the European market and the customers we work with here," said Mikael Lindmark, Vice President, EMEA, Fieldglass. "Fieldglass is making great strides to proactively address data privacy and protection laws, as well as other regulations impacting the relationship between the buyer and worker. We have dramatically increased our investments in local talent and resources to avoid the need to transfer data to the United States."

Fieldglass has the distinction of being the only global vendor management system provider to have earned an ISO 27001 certification The company plans to expand the scope of the SSAE 16, ISAE 3402, SOC 1 Type 2 and SOC 2 Type 2 to include all of their Europe data centers as well. Fieldglass is also the only provider to have been audited against all five SOC 2 trust services principles, allowing it to offer an increased level of security and reliability to all of its customers worldwide.
