Introduction to idgard®

idgard® is a cloud service with which data can be confidentially exchanged within organizations and across organizational boundaries. It ensures that the data is encrypted during transfer and remains inaccessible thanks to the sealed cloud. Even uniscon GmbH, the operator of idgard®, cannot view or decrypt the user data.
Although the data in the PrivacyBoxes is stored redundantly several times, idgard® offers no permanent guarantee for the availability of the data stored in the PrivacyBoxes. Therefore idgard® is not recommended as the sole medium for the safekeeping of backup copies. (Extract from the General Terms and Conditions)

The basic principle of idgard®

Each idgard® license package is equipped with several full and guest licenses. In the course of your work with idgard® you can increase the number of licenses.To start, create a Box. Fill this Box with files and write messages. Invite the persons with whom you want to exchange data by assigning them a corresponding license. Then add them to the Box. Within the Box you define the permissions with which they may access the data. Assign notifications to the members of the Box and users will be notified by e-mail about new documents.
