Security at idgard

What makes idgard so uniquely secure?

idgard is built around our patented sealed cloud technology, certified as an effective solution for securing your data so only those who are authorized have access.

Unlike other cloud providers, our patented sealed cloud technology means that uniscon has no technical means of gaining access to your data.

Using a combination of encryption and sealing technology allows users to seamlessly access their data, whilst ensuring certified end-to-end storage security.

In addition to ensuring cloud security, businesses must also consider data privacy when implementing cloud services. idgard ensures that storing data in the cloud always complies with date protection regulations. Thanks to our sealed technology, our customers are the sole owners of their own data, and retain exclusive control. This means that our technology is also suitable for parties storing highly confidential data, from medical records to legal documents. 

All idgard servers are located within the EU thus protected by the GDPR. Currently, our servers are based in Germany, with installations in other countries being possible as required.

With idgard not only is your data protected but also the relevant EU GDPR requirements for storing data in a cloud environment are complied with.

The German technical auditor TÜViT certified idgard according to the Trusted Cloud Data Protection profile, which is based on ISO-27018:2014 standards. The certificate validates the high-level security idgard promises to its customers (maximum Class III Protection).
