A Secure Online Data Repository (SODR) is a massive database infrastructure, which consists of multiple databases that collects, manages and stores sensitive data for data analysis and report generation. Users who are authorized have access to data through search and query tools. Repositories can also provide a complete view of organizational data by integrating data from different sources.

The centralization of data in an online repository can lessen the chance of structural discrepancies between different datasets. The repository can be designed with validation mechanisms to ensure that the data is in compliance with certain standards before it is taken in and updated. This enables governance policies to be applied consistently to ensure that data quality is maintained and security protocol are followed. It is also easier to monitor security and access protocols in a central system instead of across multiple locations.

Many data repositories permit you to secure sensitive data both in transit and at rest. This prevents unauthorized users from reading or manipulating the data. This feature reduces the possibility of sensitive information being released accidentally which could pose an extremely risky security issue for organizations. In addition, regular backups are a standard feature that can secure data from malicious attacks that could cause the destruction of important information. Additionally some repositories permit the creation of versions of data, so that when information is altered or changed, prior versions are kept for tracking and reverting purposes. This helps prevent the loss of important information in the event of an attack on the system or a hacking attack.
