NetSupport today announced that its award-winning solution for classroom instruction, online safety and IT management, classroom.cloud, enables schools in the EU to process and save data in their own region.

In an increasingly digital world where geographical boundaries are blurred, data protection has never been more important, especially in schools.

classroom.cloud is built on the secure Microsoft Azure framework and platform which, from January 2023, now supports Microsoft’s “EU data boundary” solution. This will enable schools to ensure that school data is processed and saved in their own region and help them to remain compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation and make use of any EU agreements.

CEO of NetSupport, Al Kingsley, explains: “We designed multiple privacy protections into classroom.cloud, so schools can be sure that we’re doing all we can to keep students’ data as safe as possible. Hosted on Microsoft Azure, we can now better help EU schools meet their data protection and privacy obligations by ensuring school data is processed and stored locally.”

At classroom.cloud, students’ data is only ever used as set out and controlled by the school, and it is never shared with third parties. To learn more about how classroom.cloud’s privacy controls provide flexibility for schools, click here.
