SecureSafe Emphasizes Connectivity, Security in Cloud Storage


This post is part of our live coverage of FinovateEurope 2014.

Our next presenter is the team from SecureSafe, demoing their Swiss online storage that is as safe as a bank vault.

“The financial services ecosystem suffers from the fact that each service provider has its own portal through which data is delivered in a 1:1 fashion. SecureSafe presents a platform that connects banks, EAA, POA, FIM, SNE customers, and private customers. Documents can be sent from banks to professional partners such as EAA, which then can be shared with the assigned end customers. 
Metadata that is passed together with the documents allows for an improved experience and processing on all levels. Professional teams can seamlessly and securely work together with the high-privacy platform run in Switzerland.”
Presenting Tobias Christen (CEO and Co-Founder) and Tim Kahrmann (Head of Marketing)
