Main features

GFOS knownCloud - data security without your own data center

The future lies in the cloud. Our hosting solution merits praise for its rapid deployment and scalability and offers customers maximum flexibility and security. With GFOS knownCloud, we have developed a cloud platform that makes your IT future-proof and competitive while keeping sensitive data securely under lock and key.

In the interests of our customers, our cloud environment is both individually expandable and extremely resilient to typical IT risks. The entire IT infrastructure is designed for high availability (>99.6%) thanks to redundant servers and mirroring of data centers. This gives you the certainty that critical data and applications are available and fully accessible at all times.

High-availability firewalls, application firewalls and reverse proxies ensure the security of your data. These regulate client access to the server and all data. As a rule, all data is transmitted in encrypted form. For maximum security, we subject the GFOS knownCloud to automated and external cyclical penetration tests to uncover any vulnerabilities within the cloud infrastructure.

Our GFOS cloud solution meets all GDPR requirements and has ISO 27001 certification. This makes our in-house cloud systems a secure choice for all your company's business processes and IT requirements. We would be happy to advise you in person regarding our services.

Our knownCloud is the all-round carefree package for the optimal GFOS experience - secure, flexible and highly available.
