In late 2014, the auditing and consulting firm tested and rated numerous cloud security offers for its all4cloud solution. Its objective was to combine the solutions of differing cloud computing security systems and infrastructure providers, in order to be able to offer clients a best-of-breed solution. Five leading technology providers were selected, inter alia Munich based Uniscon’s Sealed Cloud technology and its communication service IDGard.
PwC’s all4cloud solution, which is implemented quickly and cost-effectively, makes it much easier for clients to select, procure, integrate and secure a cloud solution. all4cloud includes all that’s needed to ensure secure cloud computing: Logicalis provides the infrastructure and TrendMicro the antivirus and encryption. iMPERVA detects potential attacks and controls external cloud applications as well as mobile access. Codenomicon conducts threat level analyses and ensures the security of own applications, and Uniscon ensures, per Sealed Cloud technology, that data is sealed and processed under maximum security in compliance with applicable law. Said offer is topped off by PwC’s well-tried cloud computing consulting and auditing services.
The Sealed Cloud based service IDGard not only protects communication content but also all metadata, thus allowing users to exchange information and work together safely. Decisive for PwC was the service’s level of security, just as its convenience.
Owing to unique hermetic sealing of all data, even those obliged to professional secrecy can enjoy IDGard. Its basic technology Sealed Cloud technically ensures that no unauthorized third parties, not even service provider staff, can access user data. Among the technical measures are special key distribution, automatic data clean-up upon attempted access, and de-correlation of data traffic flowing into and out of the Sealed Cloud, to name only a few.
"By applying Sealed Cloud technology, we eliminate the high security risk typical to cloud environments, namely insider access. Technical measures exclude all access by provider staff or third parties in the data center to server data,” says Dr. Ralf Rieken, CEO and co-founder of Uniscon. “We consider it an honor and great achievement award that PwC includes us in their best-of-breed all4cloud solution.”
