The Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) recognize outstanding achievements by companies and individuals in the security industry. This year's German awards ceremony also honored DRACOON, the cloud provider from Regensburg specializing in enterprise file sharing.
The OSPAs are organized in cooperation with security associations and groups from numerous countries. The criteria are based on a comprehensive research of the key factors that characterize or contribute to a particular performance.
Arved Graf von Stackelberg, one of the two managing directors of DRACOON, is very pleased about the award: "In today's world sovereignty over one's own data plays an enormously important role. And it is exactly this sovereignty that we return with our solution so that everyone can store, manage and share their data digitally in a secure way. The OSP Award is a wonderful proof of how much our team lives our mission day by day and, above all, how it is implemented in our product".
The award ceremony took place at the Business Risks Summit 2019 jointly organized by ASIS Germany and ACFE and was introduced with a keynote speech by State Secretary Jürgen Mathies (NRW). DRACOON was selected by a prestigious jury of industry experts who judged the entries according to the same criteria that are applied worldwide. The Regensburg based software company has shown that it has achieved exceptional performance and demonstrated its commitment and outstanding achievements in the security sector.
DRACOON's highly secure data exchange solution was developed in a project a few years ago: At that time a large industrial company had to send a large amount of construction plans safely to China. Since this did not work by mail, nor as an attachment by e-mail, a secure data room was built for this purpose. Today, thanks to the easy-to-use Outlook Add-In, this works with a single click: File attachments of any size are automatically converted into download shares, encrypted and sent in compliance with DSGVO. Recently DRACOON was also tested according to the requirements catalogue for cloud computing (C5) of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).
