A European Company with local contact persons

With the increase of remote collaboration, the need for additional secure software rose in companies as well as in government and educational institutions. Online whiteboards offer the possibility to conduct creative workshops and interactive meetings virtually. With a modern software solution the online collaboration can enhance the real-time user experience and as a result, increase productivity among employees. 

There are many offerings on the market, especially from US. Some of them might be already used by employees without authorization and put the data security at risk. The challenge here is to find a central solution that complies with GDPR and other data security requirements. 

Collaboard is a state-of-the-art GDPR compliant software solution for online whiteboards. It belongs to a 40-year-old privately-owned Swiss company called IBV Informatik Beratungs und Vertriebs AG. IBV was a security software specialist for more than two decades and ensured data security e.g. for financial institutions as well as insurance and pharma companies. We have a local team in Germany and Switzerland with a personal contact for you. 

With Collaboard you can host your data in the MS Azure Europe or Switzerland cloud. Otherwise, you can self-host your data on-premises or in your cloud. As a fully European company, you don't need to worry about the recent developments concerning Privacy Shield and Schrems II. If you need further information, then please contact us.

The data protection team of the technical university of Berlin played a decisive role during the development and ensured the implementation of all GDPR regulations. This means:

  • All data is processed exclusively in the EU and Switzerland

High-security data hosting and protection

If you chose to host your data in Collaboard cloud, we can guarantee you that no information will be sent outside of Europe. This was checked and approved by the data protection team of the technical university of Berlin. 

Collaboard is a highly secure solution for maximum data protection. The confidentiality and integrity of your files are protected in transit and at rest. We hold on to existing industry standards and encrypt data in transfer with high-grade TLS and multi-layered encryption and at rest with 256-bit AES. Encryption keys are securely stored in separate locations. Dependent on the environment you can bring your own key.
