Aerohive Simplifies GDPR Compliance

Aerohive offer a variety of comprehensive solutions for education and enterprise WiFi customers worried about the forthcoming effects of GDPR legislation. GDPR will be enacted on 25 May 2018 and brings unified data protection and collections regulations to the European Union. These regulations will also affect any business supplying customers based within the EU.

Effectively, any business holding personal information on consumers based within the EU will need informed consent from the consumer, rather than the passive consent which is currently relied upon. The EU does not specify exactly what consists of personal information, as this can vary between member states. Even possession of a consumer email address or IP address is classified as being in possession of personal information. Consumers are given a number of rights under the GDPR legislation, including the right to be forgotten.

Becoming GDPR-compliant is a lot easier with solutions provided by Aerohive. Check out the following:
