Data Safe Haven

ARO is one of the only service providers accredited to deliver a secure location for storing and protecting data to the standards required by UK health data custodians.

ARO has been providing data storage with enhanced security measures to specialist health and medical research organisations for over 15 years. Our solutions have been designed from the ground up to comply with the most stringent regulations in the world around data security, data privacy and data governance.

Our architects are uniquely experienced in designing trustworthy research environments and data safe havens. And we’ve built our infrastructure accordingly, with secure, high availability accredited dual-location datacentres, and an access network with high bandwidth, low latency connectivity to HSCN, Internet and direct to data sources. 

Our fully compliant Data Safe Haven is available at competitive fixed monthly costs, removing the challenges associated with hyperscale cloud services.

Building a safe place to store sensitive information from scratch, and running it in compliance with regulatory standards, diverts valuable budget, time and resource away from the central purpose of the work.

ARO solves this problem by providing a fully compliant managed DSH that’s ISO27001 and NHS DSP compliant and Cyber Essentials Plus accredited, and connected directly to the Health and Social Care Network. 

The service is available for procurement via HMG CCS and NHS frameworks and local buying partnerships for faster approval and time to market, enabling accelerated funding and approval timescales.  And if further resources are required as the project progresses, cloud-flex supports rapid and cost-efficient scalability without the need for additional infrastructure.

ARO is trusted by the UK’s most demanding data custodians to provide a robust, secure and fully compliant data safe haven for research teams to work efficiently and productively without compromising sensitive data protection.
