Maximum security through role-based access control, including authentication

The functionality and security of your applications is our main concern. That's why our experts continuously work on developing patches and system backups based on modern technology.

Additionally, we've developed a multi-dimensional system to ensure both the integrity of the platform and the efficient handling of your applications:

  • The entire infrastructure of the private container registry is designed as a high-availability configuration, i.e., redundantly secured and GDPR-compliant
  • All data is stored using SSD data at rest encryption
  • All resources can be used and managed with a granular system of roles and access rights
  • Access via a public Internet connection is possible, but requires additional authentication to view, download, and retrieve images
