Financial Services Protections

For all Universal Applications, Vendia Share supports compliance programs like SOC-2 and GDPR. But for users storing financial services data, additional compliance requirements like the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctions may apply. Vendia Share supports OFAC-sanctioned country geo-blocking as part of its extended financial services offering. To have this option enabled for your account, please reach out to us. Once enabled for your account, Financial Services protections can be enabled on a per Uni basis and will apply to all Nodes within the Uni.

Migrating Existing Unis

OFAC protections can be enabled per Uni through the Vendia Share UI. First, choose a Uni, navigate to Uni Settings, and select “Enable Financial Services”. Enabling this feature requires a restart of the Uni and all Nodes.

Breaking Change: enabling Financial Services Protections will change the API URLs of each Node in the Uni. The previous API URLs will be disabled.

New Unis

OFAC protections can be enabled when creating a new Uni through the Vendia Share UI. Under “Advanced Compliance Settings” choose “Enable Financial Services data protections.
