-- Fabasoft enhances its reliability by acquiring additional security and service quality certifications of pan-European standards
MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Sept. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the cloud computing market, Frost & Sullivan has awarded Fabasoft Cloud GmbH its 2014 European Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation Leadership. Fabasoft Cloud GmbH has set a new benchmark within the European ICT industry for secure business collaboration in a cloud platform.
Unlike competing solutions that depend on third-party data centers located in continents other than Europe, Fabasoft uses secure data centers in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. This gives the company a unique niche within the European cloud computing sector. Fabasoft also complies with European law and data protection laws such as ISO 20000 and ISO 27001 to guarantee top-notch security and reliability.
"While peer solutions depend on a single-factor, password-based login, accessing the Fabasoft Cloud requires dual-factor authentication," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Debarun Guha Thakurta. "This offers optimum security by preventing unauthenticated access to the corporate information located in the Fabasoft Cloud."
Furthermore, whereas other companies rely on third parties' infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), which makes it hard or impossible for clients to know where their valuable confidential data is stored, the Fabasoft Cloud is an end-to-end collaborative business solution that enables users to select from a range of highly secure and certified data centers when storing data.
Meanwhile, Fabasoft's "United Clouds of Europe" has raised awareness of the urgent need for autonomy within the European ICT industry. The initiative's aim is to minimize dependence on other regions and boost employment opportunities to lastingly strengthen Europe's economy.
The most unique feature of the Fabasoft Cloud, however, is that it allows enterprises to register their entire company as a cloud organization, while competing solutions only allow individual registration of each employee. Fabasoft allows all users in a cloud organization to have centralized access to the resources in the enterprise cloud, enabling the enterprise to own its corporate content.
"Additionally, the Fabasoft Cloud offers invited users the Teamroom feature, which facilitates secure collaboration and business functionalities along with protected file-sharing," noted Guha Thakurta. "Another innovative element of the Fabasoft Cloud is the inclusion of Fabasoft Mindbreeze, an intelligent search module that allows real-time searching of information from a wide range of data sources, including email, databases, the Internet, intranets, and metadata."
The Fabasoft Cloud's intuitive user interface (UI) and wide-ranging accessibility features, including compatibility with Braille keyboards for the visually challenged, evidence superior product design. The company also focuses on delivering a highly sophisticated user experience (UX). It leverages an efficient UX management cycle to obtain regular feedback from users, which is then evaluated and channeled to the scrum team for immediate implementation into the software development framework.
For these distinct product advantages and its innovation capabilities, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Fabasoft Cloud GmbH with the 2014 European New Product Innovation Leadership Award in cloud computing.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed an innovative element in a product by leveraging leading-edge technologies. The award recognizes the value-added features/benefits of the product and the increased ROI it offers customers, which, in turn, increases customer acquisition and overall market penetration potential.
Frost & Sullivan's Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for outstanding achievement in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research.
