Swiss hosting as an advantage
Many companies, especially small and medium-sized businesses, are having a hard time due to increasingly complex legal requirements for data protection.
The history of Swiss data protection law has its origins in civil laws for the protection of personal human rights.
The Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP), ratified in 1992, also represents a separate area of the fundamental human right to privacy. This Act has been revised and updated for several times to keep up with the society development. This year we will celebrate its 30th anniversary.
The latest revision of the FADP comes into force in the course of 2022. It implements the requirements of the Council of Europe's modernised Convention 108 on the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data and aligns with the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (GDPR).
The software developed by our company complies with both FADP and GDPR requirements.
Compliance with international information security standards (such as ISO 27001:2013) is not obligatory in Switzerland. However, in order to follow the best world practices, our company has passed and maintains this certification in order to provide our customers with the best products and services.
Our company is also a partner of Cyber Safe - the Swiss association for the cybersecurity label founded for promotion of responsible cybersecurity management in small and medium-sized organizations and companies in Switzerland.
In addition to strong and privacy-oriented data protection legislation, Switzerland is also famous for its secure high performance data centres. The physical security provided by the data center and the encryption of data at rest and in transit is a solid basis for ensuring the information security of your company.
Our password manager for business and individuals, PassSecurium™, is hosted in Switzerland by default (but other options are also available upon request). PassSecurium™ is a great solution for local Swiss companies that don't want to host their data outside the country when choosing password management software.
When you choose PassSecurium™ as your corporate password manager, you get:
1. Reliable encrypted software;
2. Storage of all data in Switzerland;
3. Increased data protection;
4. Compliance with current data protection legislation.
Many companies, especially small and medium-sized businesses, are having a hard time due to increasingly complex legal requirements for data protection. Therefore, we recommend that you use software, compliant to the residentiary legislation for your business, that stores data in a credible location appropriate for your business needs.
Our solutions are Swiss made and Swiss hosted with security in mind. By entrusting data protection to professionals, you will be less worried about compliance and will be able to devote more time and effort to business development!
