The new Office 365 Germany: Boxcryptor and Whisply support OneDrive Germany on all Platforms
Boxcryptor and Whisply now support OneDrive for Business in Office 365 Germany on all platforms. Office 365 Germany is a new offer by Microsoft, hosted by the German T-Systems, a subsidiary firm of the Telekom. It acts as a data trustee for Microsoft, and therefore, all data in Office 365 Germany is stored and processed in Germany. The solution is completely independent from Office 365 International. Therefore, we had to adjust and make some changes, but can now offer full support of OneDrive in Office 365 Germany.
With Office 365 Germany all Data Stays in Germany
With Office 365 Germany, Microsoft reacts to the needs of its European and German business customers. When businesses manage data in Germany by using this solution, they become independent from US laws and regulations. The integrity of Privacy Shield is no longer the only factor that ensures data protection. To make sure that US authorities cannot access data of European businesses under the PATRIOT Act, T-Systems has been appointed the official data trustee for Microsoft. As a German company, they are governed by German law and Microsoft is no longer able to access data, even if authorities tried to force them.
Boxcryptor and Office 365 Germany
Boxcryptor now supports the cloud that is part of the Office 365 Germany package: OneDrive for Business. In the course of this adaptations, design and usability have been improved accordingly. For the user, there is no longer a noticeable difference between the Microsoft clouds OneDrive as part of Office 365 international and OneDrive Business, as well as the new OneDrive in Office 365 Germany. Just add OneDrive and Boxcryptor will automatically detect which type of OneDrive you use. For data privacy reasons, OneDrive in Office 365 Germany and OneDrive in the international Office version are completely separate systems.
Using Office 365 Germany in combination with Boxcryptor ensures that all data is protected the best possible way. T-System’s servers have TÜV and ISO 27001/27002, 27017, 27018 certificates. Additionally, Boxcryptor encrypts all data before it leaves the device of the users, and before it is synchronized to OneDrive. The combination of Office 365 Germany and Boxcryptor for OneDrive ensures compliance with German data protection laws as well as compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union.
Office 365 Germany can be purchased via Microsoft, 1&1, or, as its own solution, via Telekom. All of the provider offer different plans where you can choose, which of the following services are included: OneDrive, Outlook, Exchange, Office software and Office online solutions. It is a great offer for every company that wants to use the cloud and that is already using Microsoft Office products. Boxcryptor as the additional encryption solution for OneDrive is available for free in a basic version, or in the form of personal, business, and company plans, depending on your needs.
