“Bdrive has been consistently developed according to the ‘Security-by-Design’ principle,” said Ulrich Hamann, CEO of Bundesdruckerei. “Although easy to use, the solution offers cloud security throughout the entire workflow - this is quite unique on the market.”
The users’ data is encrypted at the workplace, then distributed using the RAIC (Redundant Array of Independent Clouds) security technology and stored in a fail-safe manner with several independent storage services in Germany. This means high data availability and maximum data sovereignty - neither Bundesdruckerei as the Bdrive provider nor the storage service providers can read the data. To ensure secure use of the stored data, state-of-the-art identity management is available that enables multi-level authentication.
Bdrive will be available as of summer 2017. The cloud storage solution will run in the first version on Windows operating systems; a Mac version is also planned.
