G DATA and TeamDrive announce strategic partnership

Solution partners of the Microsoft Cloud Germany sign cooperation agreement.

German IT security specialist G DATA Software AG and TeamDrive GmbH have signed a wide-ranging partnership in the areas of data security and virus protection. Both companies will provide services through the Microsoft Cloud in Germany. The partnership’s objective is to acquire new business customers, partners and consumers for the Microsoft Cloud in Germany. Besides market development, the two companies are planning a technology cooperation. TeamDrive and G DATA presented the first insights into their collaboration at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto which took place from July 11 to 14, 2016.

Data protection, data security and compliance are of critical importance in an era of progressive digitisation of all areas of life and work for private users and businesses. 

Besides protection against malware attacks, backing up data is immensely important. With Microsoft Cloud Germany we can offer our customers a cloud solution that even meets particularly strict compliance restrictions and guarantees high security for the data backup.

Andreas Lüning, CTO of G DATA Software AG

The first step in this partnership is the integration of TeamDrive Sync & Share which is based on Microsoft Azure into the solution portfolio for consumer products of G DATA. Additional cooperations in the B2B sector are envisaged.

End-to-end encryption and virus protection are indispensable

Consistent end-to-end encryption represents the core of the high TeamDrive security. The encryption processes and technologies used by TeamDrive offer secure protection against unauthorised access by third parties. “This means that TeamDrive can also be used in very sensitive areas such as healthcare in connection with patient data or by lawyers,” explains Volker Oboda, CEO of TeamDrive Systems GmbH. “Together with G DATA solutions, security on end devices and during data transfer is significantly increased.”

Microsoft Cloud Germany: Data stored securely in the German Cloud with German data trustee

In the future Microsoft will deliver their cloud Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online from two new datacenters, located in Magdeburg and Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Access to customer data stored in these new datacenters will be under the control of T-Systems, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, an independent German company acting as a data trustee. Services are expected to be available in the second half of the year 2016 and will be available to customers in Germany, the EU and the EFTA.
