At the beginning there was the big question: Why do many companies avoid public cloud services even though their great advantages are obvious? The three founders of uniscon quickly found the explanation for this: At the time, public cloud services were considered unsafe because the operators and administrators of these services could access customer data. So, they decided to change that.
In 2009, uniscon launched its business idea: Technical means were to be used to definitively exclude operator access. Thanks to the development of the Sealed Cloud Technology, the company finally achieved this technical operator security. It is the basis for innovative products such as sealed platform® and idgard®.
This technology solves the data protection problem—the greatest challenge in the field of online security to date—in a reliable and secure manner. This has made uniscon the leading provider of secure cloud solutions in Europe. Since 2017, the company has been part of TÜV SÜD AG’s digital strategy and this partnership has allowed it to continue to drive the development of the technology.
The future is full of opportunities. Trust is the prerequisite for turning them into success stories. Because only those who believe in their goals and can persist in pursuing them will achieve them. uniscon supports companies with innovative, highly secure cloud solutions in the process of focusing on their goals and the way to get there.
