PUR Filesharing Champion: uniscon receives top rating in independent user survey for its cloud service idgard® and becomes clear winner in data protection, service, and support
Munich – August 10, 2021: Munich-based cloud service provider uniscon takes one of the top places in the „File Sharing“ category of the independent Techconsult user survey „Professional User Ratings Digital Solutions 2021“. Only eight providers were named „Champions“ in the User Ratings, including TÜV SÜD subsidiary uniscon.
A total of 1,500 users of digital e-commerce and collaboration solutions took part in the „Professional User Rating“ (PUR) conducted by analyst firm Techconsult. All participants were actually users of the services evaluated. Both the solutions and the providers were evaluated on the basis of around 60 criteria in 14 subcategories. With its highly secure cloud service idgard®, uniscon was able to secure one of the top positions as one of only two German providers among 33 market-relevant file-sharing providers.
Top rating among users thanks to Confidential Computing
uniscon achieved the best rating in the areas of data protection and data security, range of functions as well as service and support. Sustainability, price and procurement model, and innovation were also rated very highly. Here, uniscon was able to score points with its confidential computing approach, which enables the protected processing of sensitive data in the cloud thanks to a new type of security architecture.
uniscon CEO Karl Altmann is more than satisfied with the results of the user survey: “The fact that we can assert ourselves so clearly against the well-known competition with our idgard® solution shows that our approach is right on target. This applies to all industries, but especially to strictly regulated branches of the economy that have been reluctant to use the cloud until now due to strict legal requirements. These include, for example, lawyers, financial service providers and health care companies. “The award honors our efforts to meet the needs of our customers,“ says Altmann. To maintain this customer-oriented approach of its service, uniscon conducts user surveys regularly.
