Support encryption key management with a 100% EU-based provider
More and more large corporations in the EU are no longer using services that both host data and manage encryption keys with American companies due to the invalidation of Privacy Shield.
For a small SaaS-provider as ourselves, it is pushing us in the direction of having to choose between using MongoDB Atlas and losing a certain share of our clients, or figuring out a different database solution. We do not like these two choices.
We lost a deal with a major telecom company just this week due to us not wanting to replace MongoDB for our database. And there are more discussions like this at the moment.
The legal departments of large EU-based corporations are getting stricter with their interpretations of GDPR due to new recommendations from the EU court system. It is not enough that we sign an agreement with MongoDB's Irish company. It is not enough that the data is hosted within the EU. As long as the mother company is American and MongoDB (or another American company such as Google, Amazon or Microsoft) has access to the encryption keys, they feel that we expose them to risk.
It would be great if you would offer a solution where your customers can manage their encryption keys for MongoDB Atlas with a completely EU-based service. An EU-based company with data hosted in the EU.
