Easy management and comprehensive monitoring
Secomo is easy to operate and offers a dedicated management user interface, giving administrators full control over the appliance. The integrated software “Fabasoft app.telemetry“ allows you to monitor the individual system components as well as the performance and availability of Secomo.
No access to the system for the Cloud service provider – only the customer has access
Fabasoft’s motto “Continuous protection through encryption” means that nobody but you has access to your Secomo installation and its settings. Fabasoft neither has any (service) interfaces with your appliance nor your keys. Consequently, you are responsible for the safekeeping of your keys, preferably in a safe. Fabasoft cannot assist you in the case of loss.
Highly available architecture (cluster of two servers)
Secomo is an appliance consisting of the Secomo software and two highly available servers in a cluster. The servers’ hardware security modules meet the requirements of FIPS 140-2 Level-4 certification for physical security. If one server fails, continuous operation is ensured by the second server, as the servers are installed in different fire zones. This ensures a high level of availability.
Genuine end-to-end encryption
Secomo is a security architecture with genuine end-to-end encryption with a key length of 4096 bit. This means that the data is already encrypted at the workplace or the mobile end device, instead of being encrypted at a later point in the Cloud. Continuous encryption between the sender and the receiver is thereby ensured.

Secomo as a Service
Customers of the Fabasoft Cloud Edition Enterprise can use Secomo as a Service. The keys are managed by a Secomo appliance located in one of the highly secure Fabasoft data centres. Companies with their own data centre can immediately start the Secomo Encryption Appliance themselves. The system is fail-safe, offers a wide range of authentication options and is protected by hardware security modules, which can be deleted by unauthorized access.
Secure authentication by client certificates
Secomo supports authentication by client certificates. The customer is the only one deciding who will be granted access to the security appliance, and who will be authorised to work on encrypted documents. The Fabasoft Public Cloud as well as the Fabasoft Private Cloud offer an additional security measure by ensuring that encryption is only possible if login to the Cloud has been effected by way of a two factor authentication.
Instantly ready for operation and easy to use
Secomo is an encryption appliance composed of preconfigured and seamlessly integrated hardware and software components. The steps required to install, configure and bring the appliance into service are highly automated and easy to follow. Your internal staff will thus be in a position to quickly put the appliance into operation (Customer Managed). It is equally possible to have Fabasoft carry out operations (Fully Managed, excluding key administration for the HSM). Working securely across different locations and countries is easy with the elegant and intuitive user interfaces of the Fabasoft Public Cloud, the Fabasoft Private Cloud as well as the Fabasoft eGov Suite (as of 2017).
Document authenticity through digital signatures
Documents are encrypted according to state-of-the-art methods, and digitally signed. Encryption combines an asymmetric encryption (RSA-4096) with a symmetric encryption (AES-256). In addition, a digital signature (SHA-512, RSA-4096) is attached to the documents to allow for the traceability of the encrypted documents’ authenticity.
Made in Europe
Fabasoft is a European software company developing its products by itself and hosting its infrastructure independently. We are only using selected servers for our appliances. The firmware of Secomo’s HSM has been developed in Germany and is installed by Fabasoft. Operating systems, database systems as well as base components only use open source solutions.
