Data protection and data security
Fabasoft’s uniform licence agreements warrant that European law and European data protection always apply to the Cloud services. Protection and security of your company and personal data is Fabasoft’s top priority. Communication between your web browser and the Fabasoft Cloud is encrypted according to the secure http standard TLS. In addition, the encryption type Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) is applied.
Fabasoft goes beyond its own strict commitment and regularly submits to audits by international, independent and noted auditors. Fabasoft is the first European provider of cloud services to have received the attestation pursuant to the requirements of the catalogue of requirements C5 (Cloud Computing Compliance Controls Catalogue), issued by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). Moreover, Fabasoft has successfully completed the “EuroCloud Star Audit”. We are the first company in the world to receive five stars for its Cloud services, the highest possible certification by the international “EuroCloud Star Audit” (ECSA V3.0). The certification system used for the audit and for the external quality evaluation of Cloud services in Europe is based on best practices and is carried out by the renowned organisation EuroCloud Europe. On top Fabasoft is one of very few companies worldwide to be certified according to the “Certified Cloud Service” certificate of the TÜV Rheinland (Cloud Security). Additional certificates are ISO/IEC 27001 (Information security) and ISO/IEC 20000-1 (IT service management) as well as ISO/IEC 27018 (Protection of personally identifiable information) by TÜV Austria. The Fabasoft Cloud is furthermore checked according to ISAE 3402 Type 2 (internal control system and efficiency of controls) by PwC.
Your data is as valuable as gold. You decide where your data is stored
You decide on the physical storage location (Cloud location) of your data. Each location is a separate, autonomous, security data centre. The Fabasoft Cloud data centres are located in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, guaranteeing mum security with regard to data and access. Therefore, national law applies. This is of particular importance with regard to compliance requirements. Regarding your highly sensitive data, this is the only way to ensure that all legal requirements in the area of data protection are met.
Cloud location Germany: In Germany, the Fabasoft Cloud stores data in the data centres NBG3 and NBG6 hosted by noris Network AG in Nuremberg.
Maximum availability and reliability
The entire hardware and software environment of the data centres is designed for a maximum of availability and reliability, easy scalability, high security and simple administration. Your data is stored on encrypted hard disks or encrypted partitions of hard disks, and mirrored. This serves as a protection against data loss in the case of a hardware defect. In 2010, Fabasoft introduced an internal control system based on CoBIT, a framework for managing and steering of IT. The aim of this system is to warrant the availability, reliability and integrity of data at Fabasoft’s data centres. Within the framework of an ISAE 3402 Type II Report, compliance is checked annually by an auditor.
