PaaSword Project Improves Trust in Cloud Services

15 June 2017 - Geneva, Switzerland

Members of the SixSq team are in Thessaloniki this week for the latest plenary meeting of the PaaSword project.

What is PaaSword all about?

Although enterprises recognise the compelling economic and operational benefits of running applications and services in the Cloud, security and data privacy concerns are the main barriers to Cloud adoption. Valuable business benefits cannot be unlocked without addressing new data security challenges posed by Cloud Computing. PaaSword aims at fortifying the trust of individuals and corporate customers in Cloud-enabled services and applications. The focus is on secure storage of both corporate and personal sensitive data on Cloud infrastructures.

What is SixSq’s contribution?

SixSq’s cloud management platform is being used as the PaaS solution for orchestration of distributed applications on Clouds.

The project continues until 31 December 2017.
