Fabasoft once again awarded the highest certification level by the EuroCloud StarAudit
For the fourth time in a row, the cloud service of the company from Linz has been awarded all five stars in the renowned cloud certification scheme of EuroCloud Europe – the only provider worldwide to have achieved this highest possible certification level. Such distinctions confirm the high level of security of data in the Fabasoft Cloud.
Fabasoft is the only company to have received this great distinction from the auditors of EuroCloud since the 5-star certification was introduced in the year 2015.
“With this latest 5-star audit certification Fabasoft continues to demonstrate how to operate the highest level of cloud quality and compliance,” confirms Tobias Höllwarth, president of the pan-European association EuroCloud Europe. “It is high time well-known cloud service providers followed this example. And even more important: Austrian cloud service customers are beginning to ask explicitly for such certification.”
During its qualitative assessment of a cloud ecosystem, the EuroCloud certificate takes the quality standards along the entire supply chain into consideration. In recent years, the security aspects of the catalogue of criteria have been continuously tightened and brought in line in particular with the requirements of the EU GDPR.
“Cloud providers certified in compliance with the EuroCloud StarAudit offer customers the greatest possible security for all their cloud services and the entire operator infrastructure,” says Andreas Dangl, Managing Director of Fabasoft Austria GmbH. “We are thrilled with this latest top ranking awarded by EuroCloud for our consistent high performance with regard to data protection and data security”.
