Main features

GFOS as software as a service

Company-owned data centers and IT departments that take care of complex IT infrastructures and their security are currently the norm in many places, or at least the declared goal. However, the costs for setting up and the effort required for administration and further development are very high, so that not all companies want to set up and operate their own data center or server rooms and an IT security concept. 

With the GFOS knownCloud, customers benefit from a solution that meets the very highest security standards and data protection requirements. Be it Workforce Management, Manufacturing Execution System or cloud-based access control: with GFOS as software as a service in the cloud, you are always in the clear.

The security of your data comes first

The data center is connected to a fiber optic network and has an availability of >99.6%. A double-designed and separately fed fiber optic cable network and permanent monitoring ensure maximum availability. Secure access is ensured by the use of high-availability firewalls, reverse proxies and application firewalls - personal data is only transmitted via encrypted connections.

IT security is like chess - without the necessary strategy, tactics and experience, our data will quickly be at risk.
