Top rating for idgard®: Data protection winner in Techconsult user survey thanks to Confidential Computing

In the independent Techconsult user survey “Professional User Ratings Digital Solutions 2021”, our business cloud takes one of the top places in the category “file sharing”. We are very proud of this! After all, only eight providers were named “champions” in the User Ratings—including us!

Top rating for idgard® and uniscon in the user rating

Around 1,500 users of digital e-commerce and collaboration solutions took part in the “Professional User Rating” (PUR). All participants were actually users of the rated services. The survey was conducted by the analyst firm Techconsult, a subsidiary of the heise group. Based on around 60 criteria in 14 subcategories, not only the file-sharing solutions but also the providers were evaluated. With our highly secure cloud collaboration service idgard®, we were able to secure one of the top positions as one of only two German providers among 33 market-relevant file sharing providers—even ahead of well-known industry giants such as Strato, Google and IBM. 

Top rating for idgard® and uniscon

Among other things, idgard® received the top rating in the “general basic features”. These include points such as data protection and data security, compatibility, and mobile use. Our cloud service is also a frontrunner in terms of functionality. Here, users rated data encryption and user authentication, among others. In the “solution benefits” category, we are no longer in first place, but we scored highly in the “secure and fast data exchange” category. No solution was rated better than idgard®. 

In addition, not only the solutions were evaluated in the context of the User Rating, but also the providers. In the categories “service and support” and “sales partner” uniscon is the clear winner. We also received very good ratings for “Price and Supply Models”, “Innovation”, “Sustainability” and “Information, Consulting and Training Services”—Thank you very much!

It couldn’t be more secure: Data protection champion thanks to Confidential Computing

idgard® is file sharing champion—thank you for your trust!

Of course, we are happy about the excellent rating in general terms. But we are particularly proud of our top position in data protection and data security.

Thanks to a new type of patented security architecture—the so-called sealed cloud technology—this ensures that the data in the cloud is not only optimally protected during storage and transmission, but also during processing. We explain exactly how this works in this white paper, among other things:

For you as a user, this means that no one except you and the people with whom you share your information has access to your data. Not even we as the operator of the cloud. This makes idgard® perfect for the GDPR-compliant exchange and processing of sensitive data.

The ideal service for strictly regulated industries

uniscon CEO Karl Altmann is more than satisfied with the results of the Techconsult 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. In addition to well thought-out security for SaaS solutions, a professional onboarding and service offering is becoming increasingly important for corporate customers.”

This applies to all industries, but especially to strictly regulated branches of the economy that have so far been reluctant to use the cloud 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.

In order to maintain this customer-oriented focus, we also conduct our own user surveys at regular intervals. Of course, you can find out what the results are here on privacyblog.
