Vigiswiss® Swiss Data Center Association is the first certified network of Swiss data storage and protection companies. Its mission is to preserve the global digital memory. Vigiswiss was formed to store and protect the confidential data of governments, organizations, companies and individuals the world over and to protect related systems (e.g. data processing, analysis, communications and transmission). The Vigiswiss label is a guarantee of the excellence of the services delivered by its members and their partners: data centers, hosts, integrators and associated service providers. Under the Vigiswiss charter, certified members agree to provide a defined level of security, not to host illegal data (e.g. data related to terrorism, child pornography, etc.) and to be regularly audited by an independent body.
Switzerland is an ideal and strategic location for data protection: it is a politically neutral, stable and pragmatic democracy with a culture of confidentiality, sitting at the crossroads of Europe's ultrafast data connections. Swiss legislation strictly protects both personal and corporate data and applies stringent standards to the processing of highly confidential data (such as medical data). The country’s high-tech companies, research labs and globally recognized universities are constantly innovating and play a role in identifying IT security threats.
