Data Security and Storage

Privacy has of late become an important topic. As a result, it is getting more important for companies to know that their data is protected.

Cloud solutions and hence cloud WMS face greater challenges than local on-premises solutions.
Therefore, providers use special technologies to ensure this.
Supporting technologies are encryption, static virtual local area networks and firewalls.

An important question is also the storage location of the data.

In cloud computing, a storage during all intermediate stages is possible – from a local server to a global cluster distribution. Data are stored in encrypted form.
Providers assure a service availability of 99.9%, which meets the current standard.

Depending on the customer requirements, the cloud providers customize the security strategy.
