DRACOON, expert in enterprise file sharing and leader in the German-speaking market, is cooperating with the security provider Virtual Solution, whose business app “SecurePIM” offers reliable protection for corporate data. Thanks to this collaboration, two German security specialists are now providing an EU GDPR compliant solution, especially when wanting to work securely with sensitive company data while on the move.

Not only public authorities have high security requirements when it comes to mobile access to official data. Even companies in the industrial sector attach great importance to the security of their sensitive data. If these requirements cannot be fully met, many companies prefer to entirely prohibit mobile data retrieval instead of running the risk of data compromise. SecurePIM offers an ideal protection with its “OFFICE TO GO” product. With the help of the SecurePIM Management Portal and the SecurePIM Gateway, administrators determine who gets access to company data with their mobile device. Emails, contacts, calendars, notes, tasks, documents and Internet access, as well as a secure camera are stored in a secure, easy-to-use container on your smartphone or tablet. SecurePIM provides authorized employees with access to all important data on the go.

This container approach focuses on the protection of information and data. Instead of controlling the device, SecurePIM ensures the security of data on the mobile device, whether it is a private or company device. If an employee leaves the company or loses the device, the corporate data in the SecurePIM container can be immediately reset remotely.

Thanks to the cooperation with DRACOON, access to documents in the DRACOON server is now also GDPR compliant. Without opening the WebDAV interface to the outside, SecurePIM accesses documents via a dedicated connection to the gateway. In addition, file attachments that were received by e-mail can be stored in DRACOON without having to change the app. All files are encrypted within SecurePIM as well as during transmission and are stored separately from all other data. This makes it impossible for other apps to access company data.

Marc Schieder, CIO of DRACOON, emphasizes: “Thanks to the modular and integrative structure of both solutions, we are able to react quickly and in a focused manner to the needs of our partners and customers. I am delighted that two such innovative companies from Germany now offer a synergetic solution that can be transparently and efficiently integrated into the individual work routine in terms of universal data access, maximum data security and high user-friendliness,” Schieder continues.

“The combination of both solutions offers maximum security for the users, but above all for the companies,” explains Günter Junk, CEO of Virtual Solution. “With DRACOON we have found a certified German manufacturer who actively supports us with the same focus on safety and mobility. Especially with regard to the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will come into force in May 2018, we are thus relying on a solution that can fully cover the most important work steps in mobile work in a future-proof way,” Günter Junk continues.
