 November 30, 2018 has gone through some changes recently, in order to reflect the renewed direction of our company. We are focusing on offering compliant, comprehensive, and consistent IaaS and data storage solutions for computer environments of all types.


 From managed stacks to IaaS public cloud, connecting your team has never been so easy, even from around the world. Our secure data management bridges the gaps of your workflow. Cartika offers you seamless and reliable access to whatever infrastructure you need, whenever you need it.

Cartika is ready to help you with all of your IaaS and cloud requirements, including:

 In the past few years, more and more federal acts regarding data storage have been implemented. We take data security and safety very seriously, and take all necessary measures to ensure your storage solution is 100% compliant with the regulation for your data type.

Some of the regulations that have been put into effect include:

  • HIPAA (Health Information Portability & Accountability Act), related to medical data
  • HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act)
  • SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley Act), related to investment data
  • FISMA (The Federal Information Security and Management Act), related to government data
  • GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
  • GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), in the European Union
  • PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act), in Canada
  • PHIPA (Personal Health Information Privacy Act)
  • COPPA (Child Online Privacy Protection Act)

Along with several other key data regulations, managing compliance alone can be a job unto itself. We use expert support that’s always a single phone call away, no matter what. Combined with our proactive management technique which fixes problems before they begin, our support system offers all customers the advantage of being stress-free about data compliance.


 Cartika uses the NIST Cybersecurity and Privacy Framework to keep your data safe. From endpoint security, to big data, to access management, to incident reporting, we can help you to maintain a fully secure and compliant storage infrastructure. We also offer VPNs, SSL certificates, and solutions to any other data security questions you may have.
