Company Pushes To Offer Europe-Only Cloud Services
DATA PROTECTION—EUSeptember 15, 2011
A telecommunications company is asking regulators to issue a certificate for German or European cloud service providers to help protect online data from government access, Bloomberg reports. Deutsche Telekom AG's T-systems wants to offer customers secure servers designed to prevent outside access such as that allowed under the U.S. Patriot Act, the report states. A representative from the company said, "Certain German companies don't want others to access their systems. That's why we're well-positioned if we can say we're a European provider in a European legal sphere and no American can get to them."
