DRACOON is certified according to ISO 27001.

The platform has been described as “leader” by independent top analysts such as ISG. Furthermore, various certificates, seals and attestations such as BSI C5, ISO 27001 and IDW PS 951 certify DRACOON the highest security standards.

According to the principle “Privacy by Design” DRACOON contains an integrated client-side encryption. Sent and stored data are maximally protected, because the key for decryption always remains with the owner. Not even the admin or DRACOON as the provider have access. The detailed user and rights management offers individual access rights to all stored data. Thus, authorized users retain full control.

The universal API enables the integration of external services and applications, from secure email communication to the complete modernization of the file services.

KfW, Rossmann, Helios Kliniken, Rödl & Partner, ElringKlinger, EbnerStolz, DATEV, Nürnberger Versicherung, Thyssen Steel, Deutsche Telekom, Hutchison, Bechtle and many more.


Every groundbreaking innovation begins with wild determination

The idea for DRACOON arose from the unrelenting will of a small group of IT developers with the big idea: to give the world back its data sovereignty. As encryption experts at SSP Europe GmbH, they implemented an uncompromisingly secure solution with maximum user-friendliness, the "Secure Data Space".

The battle cry "zero tolerance for security risks - total data sovereignty for authorized users" positioned SSP Europe sharply against the
dominant American competition. Well-known companies in German-speaking countries were convinced right from the start. Within two years, they made "Secure Date Space" the market-leading product for business-focused file services.

SSP Europe's focus on a highly relevant core topic - the realization of a data room that is easy to use with world-class security standards - was followed by its positioning as the "protector of digital freedom". Accelerated data growth, digitization pressure, collaboration beyond company boundaries, cloud, apps and professionalized data theft gave new impetus to the further development of Secure Date Space. Soon the corset of the old company name became too tight. The new, global self-image and the passionate demand to do the right thing without ifs and buts and to be the "good guys" demanded a new appearance.


DRACOON - the name says it all

What followed was only consistent: a new spirit, a new name. For the company and for the product. A name with a big promise. Unique, unmistakable. A name characterized by a spirit of optimism and leadership.

SSP Europe and Secure Data Space were renamed DRACOON. Thus, the positioning "protector of digital freedom" became alive and well. Both "DRAGON" and "COCOON" are associated with the new name. The enthusiasm of the employees inspired by the benefits for the user. A protection for the good, an enemy for the bad.

DRACOON has made it its business to give the world back its data sovereignty. Therefore, the software has an integrated client-side encryption according to the principle "Privacy by Design" - this ensures maximum protection of sent and stored data, because the key for decryption always remains with the owner. DRACOON is therefore "your key to digital freedom".
