Keep your FP7 and Horizon 2020 project data safe and accessible
Data security - hosted in Germany
All data in EMDESK is stored on secure servers in Germany with daily backups and 99% uptime since 2006. KEYWEB AG is an award-winning data centre operator that applies state-of-the-art security technologies. Keyweb AG takes both physical and network security seriously ensuring your data is safe against access and breakdown.
In addition, Keyweb is committed to environmental protection and to reducing CO2 emissions.
Secure access and encrypted data transfer
Information exchanged between your computer and our servers is possible only via a secure SSL connection certified by Let’s Encrypt (256-bit encryption by independent certificate authority facilitated by Mozilla), a technology also used for online banking.
No-one has access to your project unless you explicitly invite them to join. In addition, various verification algorithms during authentication are implemented, unique user names and strong passwords are required and an automatic log-out exists when users are idle for more than 60 minutes.
We understand that your projects contain sensitive information and we make sure that all your data remains confidential. We have undergone extensive testing by the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology. They verified that unauthorised access to EMDESK from external sources or registered users is prevented. Our staff access to the private or project related data is technically and legally limited just to allow for adequate customer support governed by strict non-disclosure terms.
Backup and recovery
Your data is stored to multiple locations, and we make additional automatic backups of it to a remote backup server every day. We can recover data in your project for up to 90 days back. Even in the unlikely event of multiple server failure, a major disruption or disaster we can restore the entire production system.
All your information in one place
Our clients appreciate that their project data is stored in a single place with role-based defined access rights - rather than stuck on a partner’s desktop, on unsecured share drives or sent via email. All users can access the centralized data on our secured server from anywhere anytime – and no confusion about what's the latest version. So even if something happens to your pc or hard drive, your data is still securely stored in EMDESK (just as long as you keep your access details safe).
Automatic upgrades and improvements
You do not need to install any software to use EMDESK and because it’s a web-based tool you will automatically benefit from all our updates at no extra cost. Our experienced developers in Germany take care of the maintenance and you always have the latest version of EMDESK.
No installation, compatible with all operating systems
Using a PC at work but a Mac at home? No problem, all you need is a browser and Internet access. EMDESK is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux running a recent version of Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer (V10+) or Safari (V6+).
No system lock-in - your data remains yours
We don’t keep you locked in - you can export your project data from EMDESK at any point. You can generate Word, Excel and CSV files that you can store locally at a mouse click. We keep your project data archived for up to 8 years after project end just in case you need to access it. And as a matter of course, your private and project related data stays yours and is not shared or processed.
Over 2900 projects entrusted to us
We are proud to support over 2900 projects and proposals with 19 000+ registered users. Keeping their data safe and accessible is core to our business success. But don’t just take our word for it - see what our clients have to say.
