Unfair gag contracts with providers of data rooms – the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) issued a warning against unfair gag contracts. It is strongly recommended to examine the possibilities of a service provider switch.
No barriers to switching data rooms with dataroomX®
The BSI warns against vendors who want to make it difficult for customers to switch by hidden fees or other barriers. The use of proprietary file formats not only makes it difficult to switch to another provider – the integrity of the information is also compromised.
Transparency & unconditional customer orientation
dataroomX® is a data room product that resolutely opposes such untrustworthy business practices. There is no vendor lock-in: the data room provided can be terminated monthly. Tangle contracts with long durations are not offered at all. Rather, the customer even has the opportunity to have his package put on hold. There are no cancellation fees. These are the three points with which dataroomX® achieves unconditional transparency and absolute customer orientation: monthly termination opportunity, no termination fees and the use of the data formats chosen by the customer.
Security requirements for data rooms
Just recently, the BSI released the requirements catalog Cloud Computing C5 (German). The Cloud Computing Compliance Controls Catalog defines a security level that no cloud vendor should undercut. Also included: the necessary proofs by which suppliers confirm the fulfillment of the requirements.
