Trust, but Verify
Certifications and Seals Awarded to DRACOON
We developed our cloud service completely with the customer in mind. Nevertheless, it’s important to us that we not only impress you with our own detailed descriptions of our solution and our outstanding team, but that external institutions also evaluate and certify our successful product DRACOON. This is how we ensure that our customers always enjoy maximum data security.
The BSI’s catalog of requirements for cloud computing (C5) defines requirements and obligations that a cloud provider must meet in order to certified as having implemented a high standard of information security. The catalog of requirements takes the recognized ISO 27001 standard and adds further aspects to it that are relevant to a cloud provider and establish a baseline level of security. An audit on the basis of this catalog of requirements can only be carried out by an independent, third-party auditor. This auditor produces a detailed audit report covering all aspects of information security at the organization. As a result, customers receive confirmation that information security at an accredited cloud provider has been thoroughly tested and is extremely high.
In this context, DRACOON was audited and successfully certified by the auditing firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

ISO/IEC 27001 is an internationally recognized standard that certifies a company’s successful implementation and operation of an information security management system (ISMS). An ISMS manages and monitors all of a company’s information and specifies instructions on how to handle information worthy of protection. This ISO certification helps customers identify service providers that comply with information security regulations and therefore protect the customer’s information.

Through outsourcing and cloud computing, companies today have the opportunity to outsource processes and in doing so, streamline their organizational structures. Nevertheless, the companies still remain ultimately responsible for these processes. For this purpose, an auditor can carry out its own extensive audit activities or simply rely on an audit report in accordance with IDW PS 951 (“Audit of a service provider’s internal control system for processes outsourced to the service provider”). This is because IDW PS 951 serves to document the internal control system’s suitability and effectiveness. The benefit of this for customers is that it eliminates or limits the scope of recurring audits, reduces liability risks, and increases efficiency during an audit.
In this context, DRACOON was audited and successfully certified by PwC, the leading auditing and consulting firm in Germany.
