Calgary, ALBERTA, CANADA – PASSPORTAL HEAD OFFICE – May 7, 2018 – Passportal today announced that it is expanding its geographic reach with the opening of a new data center in the U.K. Located in London, this is the first European data center for Passportal, which currently has data centers in the U.S. and Canada. With the opening of this new data center, Passportal is also announcing that its data centers in all three regions are compliant with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

“We have been experiencing significant growth both in the U.S. and Canada, and around the globe,” said Colin Knox, Founder & CEO, Passportal. “By opening a data center in the U.K., we are re-affirming our commitment to helping our channel partners protect their customers’ data security and privacy through GDPR-compliant managed services that extend across our entire global operation.”

Passportal’s U.K. data center will be hosted with Amazon Web Services and offer localized pricing, data storage, and services with an increased product performance for U.K.-based partners and customers compared to accessing the Canadian data center.
