Fabasoft Cloud Reconfirmed as World’s Most Secure Cloud Service
Recertification in a 5-star rating
The renowned Cloud certification service EuroCloud Europe has once again decided to award Fabasoft Cloud the highest possible certification level as the only Cloud service worldwide. Distinctions like this one confirm the excellent security standards for data in the Fabasoft Cloud.
Vienna / Linz, 12 June 2018. The Fabasoft Cloud has once again passed the demanding assessment of EuroCloud Europe with flying colours. As the only Cloud service in the world with a 5-star rating, the Fabasoft Cloud continues to ensure the best possible data storage for its customers.
“Fabasoft has been demonstrating how to operate a high-quality Cloud service for many years,” Tobias Höllwarth, president of the pan-European association EuroCloud Europe confirms. “The transparent and full publication of the results of a Cloud certification builds trust. And that this European paradigm happens to be located in Austria is particularly pleasing.”
During its qualitative assessment of a Cloud ecosystem, the EuroCloud certificate takes the entire supply chain into consideration. The scope of the assessment was sharpened in terms of content over the past two years, and the new assessment catalogue expected to be published soon will contain further extensive adaptations, including more intensive evaluations related to the EU GDPR.
Besides general information on the Cloud provider, EuroCloud Europe’s audit scheme focuses on factors like the location of data storage, the compliance conformity of general and service-related terms and conditions, the entire security management and data protection requirements, the operation and infrastructure as well as all operative processes. When a Cloud provider is certified by EuroCloud Europe, potential customers can rest assured that the most stringent quality standards are in effect for all offered Cloud services and the entire provider infrastructure.
“This renewed confirmation of our intensive investments into uncompromising security and the protection of our customers’ data is extremely gratifying,” says Andreas Dangl, Business Unit Executive for Cloud Services at Fabasoft. “The highest level of certification from the EuroCloud Europe audit proves that we take the trust of our customers very seriously—and we guarantee that will not change in future.”
