Wiesbaden, March 2017. The goal of the initiative “Cloud Services Made in Germany” is to establish more legal certainty regarding the usage of cloud-based services in a rapidly growing market. As a pioneer in the field of cloud-based applications, Futura Solutions has joined the initiative. In order to be accepted in its qualified application catalog, providers have to meet fixed criteria.
Criteria for admission include a place of business, a place of jurisdiction and the availability of a contact person on site, as well as a contract in German language and in accordance with German jurisprudence. The SLA (Service Level Agreement) concluded with the company’s clients must also have been created in accordance with German law. As of February 2017, 202 cloud providers have signed up to the initiative launched by AppSphere AG with the assistance of the Cloud Computing Report.
Data protection and IT security have always been a top priority at Futura Solutions, which has been offering cloud-based applications entirely “Made in Germany” since 2000. As a provider of IT and cloud services, Futura Solutions considers itself the “security operation center” for its clients. This was already reflected in a comprehensive certification according to ISO 27001 and the decision for the widest possible scope encompassing the entire company. The scope of application covers the development and the quality assurance of the standard software as well as the operation of cloud-based services. The basic IT protection developed by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) and the requirements of ISO / IEC 270001 provide us with a clear reference frame for information security.
