Enterprise Cloud

100% Swiss

All our computing, storage and software defined networking resources are located in world class data centres in Switzerland.

Respect for the privacy of individual and company data is required by Swiss law: SR 235.1 Federal Act on Data Protection. Safe Swiss Cloud computing resources and data are accordingly only accessible to our client or parties authorized by them.

In the European Commission Decision 2000/518/EC (Official Journal L 215/1 of 25.8.2000) the Commission states that Swiss law provides adequate protection of personal data and data transfers from Member States to Switzerland are therefore, permitted under Art. 25(1) of the EU Directive. This makes Safe Swiss Cloud a great choice for EU companies and individuals who want to ensure compliance with EU data protection directives.
