Cloud Storage Security: Cloud service ensures secure data exchange

Companies exchange data daily. Including sensitive data, which is often transmitted unencrypted. That will change. To make data exchange more secure, Uniscon offers the cloud service Web Privacy Service IDGARD.

Uniscon introduces the cloud service Web Privacy Service IDGARD, which has now been released as a corporate solution. With IDGARD, a secure exchange of sensitive data via the Internet is to be made possible. The Munich-based IT company Uniscon uses a variety of security technologies.

Thats how it works

Modern companies exchange large amounts of data over the Internet every day. Including many sensitive data, which are usually transmitted unencrypted. This entails a sometimes great security risk. This will be different with the cloud service IDGARD from Uniscon. IDGARD redirects digital traffic through the so-called Sealed Cloud , an electronic, cryptographic and electromechanical sealed data center.

Here, various features are anonymized and replaced by uniform features. For example, the Sealed Cloud will create unified IP addresses and headers for all home and work users using IDGARD. The cloud solution also offers additional services: for example, documents can be stored sealed for mobile access and sensitive documents and data can be sent confidentially across company boundaries.

Easy use

According to Uniscon, the cloud solution Web Privacy Service IDGARD can be used with a web browser. Alternatively, the Munich-based IT company offers free add-on software for various systems and an add-in for Microsoft Outlook.

According to the provider, IDGARD ensures that the documents remain in the sealed areas of the Sealed Cloud in Germany and avoids critical violations of applicable data protection law and compliance rules. According to the provider, the cloud service Web Privacy Service IDGARD is billed according to the number of workstations. For example, a company pays 6 to 8 euros net per month for a workstation equipped with IDGARD.

However, thanks to the different frameworks of Machine Learning , access to this technology has greatly simplified over the years. These frameworks include PyTorch, CNTK, MXNet, and Google Tensorflow .

German location: what is it?

The Machine Learning is a technology that can be extremely useful for many use cases, but unfortunately is complex to handle . Data acquisition, model training, and neural network deployment initially require significant technical skills.

Created by the Google Brain team in 2011 as a proprietary system dedicated to Deep Learning’s neural networks , TensorFlow was originally called DistBelief. Subsequently, the DistBelief source code was modified and this tool became an application-based library. In 2015, it was renamed TensorFlow and Google made it open source . Since then, it has undergone more than 21000 modifications by the communication and passed in version 1.0 in February 2017 .

Simply put, TensorFlow is a library of Machine Learning, a toolbox for solving extremely complex mathematical problems with ease. It allows researchers to develop experimental learning architectures and transform them into software.

It can be conceived as a programming system in which the calculations are represented as graphs . The nodes of the graph represent the mathematical operations, and the borders represent multidimensional data arrows communicated between them: the tensors.
