The use of appropriate cloud services allows companies a very flexible scalability with optimal performance and thus brings enormous cost-saving potentials with it. However, the opportunities of cloud computing also face a number of risks. Cloud service providers can only succeed in the market if they exclude the potential risks to their customers, such as inadequate service availability or privacy issues. So that cloud providers can prove this externally, TÜV TRUST IT has developed the “Trusted Cloud Service certification.
