At Exclaimer, we understand the importance of data residency for our customers. In a world where data breaches and misuse of personal information are all too common, we differentiate ourselves from other email signature management providers with a clear commitment to security and data protection.

That's why we're excited to announce that our solution is now hosted within Microsoft Azure datacenters in Germany. This means all data is stored and processed within the country, ensuring that our customers' sensitive information stays protected. With this, businesses can have peace of mind knowing that their data remains within Germany and in compliance with the regulations of the European Union (EU).

By offering German-specific data residency, we're also further reinforcing our commitment to the highest compliance standards and solidifying our position as the leading email signature management provider for businesses of all sizes.

Ensuring data residency and compliance

Data residency refers to the practice of keeping data within a specific geographical region or jurisdiction. It's a requirement for many businesses, particularly those in regulated industries like healthcare and finance. In the case of Germany, businesses must adhere to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG), its Federal Data Protection Act. These laws establish strict guidelines for the collection, processing, and storage of personal data.

For federal agencies and institutions with complex compliance requirements, this becomes even more crucial. These entities often face strict demands for data protection, including both data security and safeguarding data hosted outside of Germany. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in hefty fines and damage to a business's reputation. Therefore, many German organizations need compliant solutions to ensure both data residency and protection.

Built with security in mind

Our email signature management solution is designed to work exclusively within Microsoft Azure, a highly trusted platform for IT professionals worldwide. Azure offers scalability and flexibility, ensuring that no email we process ever leaves the secure Microsoft cloud environment.

Azure Germany West Central and Germany North, where our solution is hosted, are both physically isolated instances of Microsoft Azure designed specifically to comply with German data privacy regulations. Our Azure setup employs active-active load balancing to ensure uninterrupted network service from these datacenters. This means that if one datacenter ceases operation, our service will be able to continue.

Our approach differentiates us from other email signature management vendors. While they rely on a single datacenter per region, we take it a step further by hosting ours across two physically separate datacenters, making us the top choice for businesses seeking the best email signature management experience. This setup also allows us to continuously improve and update our solution to meet the evolving needs of businesses in Germany.

We understand that many German businesses have concerns regarding data access and control when using a cloud-based solution. That's why we've implemented the strictest access controls and processes to ensure that only authorized personnel can access customer data. Additionally, all data is encrypted in transit and at rest within the Microsoft Azure infrastructure, further protecting against unauthorized access.

And with our extensive accreditations, including SOC 2 Type II, ISO 27001 & 27018, and Cyber Essentials, we take great pride in offering the most secure and compliant email signature management solution. This combination of top-tier security accreditations and a trusted platform in Azure further reinforces our commitment to safeguarding user data and delivering truly secure email signature management.
