Storegate Safe Box offers a secure place in the cloud for extra sensitive information

  • Storegate is now launching a new cloud service for storing extra sensitive files. The service is called Storegate Safe Box and is a web service with the possibilty for 2-way verification. No clients can be connected to the service and if you want to share files outside the team, identification via password can be required by the recipient.

    “Companies and authorities that handle extra sensitive information have realized how easily data can get into hibernation or be hijacked by unauthorized people,” says Matz Karlsson, CEO of Storegate AB.
    The Storegate Safe Box is designed for, for example, the Board, which needs a simple and secure place for storing and sharing information. The dentist who needs to share patient information in the form of x-ray plates for the opinion of colleagues or the business lawyer who needs to store and share highly sensitive information such as company acquisitions, patents and more.
    – Storegate develops all services on its own platform and as a Swedish company we therefore obey Swedish law. In addition, all files are stored in our own servers located in data centers located in Sweden, concludes Matz Karlsson.

    Storegate provides Swedish cloud services to region Stockholm

  • Storegate AB, a Swedish supplier of cloud services for storing digital information, now supplies Swedish cloud services to region Stockholm .

    – More and more people in the public sector need to supplement their IT services with Swedish cloud services for handling sensitive information. This applies to everything from employees’ personal information (so that the employee does not have to decide what can and cannot be stored in the cloud) to share information internally and externally, says Torbjörn Lindkvist, business area manager at Storegate Services.

    The first customer to call off the service is SL (Storstockholm’s local traffic), which conducts the reconstruction of Sweden’s largest hub for traffic of various kinds, the project Slussen. SL will use Storegate for information dissemination and data coordination, both internally and externally.

    – Our greatest requirement when it comes to such solutions is information security. We share sensitive building data but also other documentation in the project among hundreds of users, says Stefan Österdahl, Data Coordinator at SL, Program Slussen. When we work, our updates go very fast and it is important that everyone is on the latest version of the same file, that solves Storegate, concludes Stefan.

    Storegate launches support for Azure AD

  • The recent debate over the storage of sensitive information in foreign cloud services has raised concerns. First it was the GDPR and then the new US law “CLOUD Act” that made Swedish companies and authorities need to supplement their cloud services to solve this problem. Storegate offers these solutions and now also launches a link to Azure AD.

    Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s cloud-based identity and access management service. Azure AD helps organizations log in and access resources in:

    • External resources, such as Microsoft Office 365, the Azure portal and thousands of other SaaS applications.
    • Internal resources, such as apps in the company’s network and intranet, along with cloud buttons.

    The fact that Storegate is now also available via Azure AD means that it will be even easier for large companies and authorities to supplement with a Swedish cloud service.
    – Today, there is a great demand for services to secure, store and share files securely in the cloud. With Storegate you can now easily supplement your existing cloud services to obtain legally correct and secure business data management. Says Matz Karlsson CEO of Storegate AB. This is because Storegate develops its services on its own platform and therefore as a Swedish company is subject to Swedish law. In addition, all files are stored in our own servers located in data centers located in Sweden with our partner Telia Carrier. The fact that we have our own platform also means that we can offer customized cloud services to secure, store and share files. Quite unique it also ends Matz Karlsson.

    Storegate starts a new cloud company

  • Storegate AB starts a new cloud company that will revolutionize the way you save your personal information. In the days, a new Swedish cloud company – Tokeep AB, was started. Tokeep’s business concept is to give its customers control over important personal information by collecting and saving everything in one place, automatically.

    Behind ToKeep stands Storegate AB and the founders of Storegate, Matz Karlsson and Bertil Hedén. The company, which was registered on February 6, 2019, already has the CEO and first external investor in place.

    As the CEO of ToKeep, Patrick Isacson has been appointed. Patrick has extensive experience in the IT industry and has held a leading position in several entrepreneurial startups, including the past five years as CEO of NODA Intelligent Systems. In addition, I and my founding colleague Bertil Hedén have worked closely with Patrick on several projects and we know that he is the right person for the assignment, says Matz Karlsson, CEO of Storegate AB.

    The first external investor in Tokeep was Länsförsäkringar Blekinge. Länsförsäkringar Blekinge has allocated capital to invest in local companies with clear scalability and sustainability in the business concept. After going through the declarations of interest, Tokeep was selected as the first company to invest in.

    It’s really nice to be up and running now, says Matz Karlsson. With Storegate’s increasingly strong focus on the corporate market, a new company was required for this investment in the private market. It is a brilliant idea and together with our long experience in cloud storage we have really good conditions to succeed.

    The capital raising process is ongoing and we expect the first stage funding to be fully in place by August / September 2019, concludes Matz Karlsson.

    Cygate offers their customers Swedish cloud services for secure storage of files through Storegate

  • GDPR has meant that more and more companies demand company files being physically stored in Europe and in some cases even in Sweden. With the new US law, “Cloud Act”, it is also crucial for Swedish companies which supplier to choose to avoid the possibility of foreign authorities getting access to stored information. Therefore, Cygate (a part of Telia), now offers its customers Storegate’s services as part of their offering of local cloud services.

    When the EU Data Protection Regulation came into force earlier this year, many companies and organizations got their eyes on how their information was handled. This also increased the need for locally produced cloud services for data storage within the borders of Sweden. Therefore, Cygate now offers their own and Telia’s corporate customers secure storage in Storegate’s Swedish cloud service.

    “Today there is a great demand for a legally accurate and secure management of business data. Here, Cygate has already been able to offer a wide range of services as well as custom data halls for storing and managing our customers’ information in a more tailored way. With Storegate, we can also offer Swedish cloud services to secure, store and share files to those customers who make these demands.” Says Patrik Holmqvist, Business Area Manager for Hybrid IT at Cygate.

    “With Storegate, Cygate’s customers have access to a Swedish cloud service for storing, sharing, accessing and collaborating with files, which is quite unique,” says Matz Karlsson, CEO of Storegate AB. This is because Storegate develops their services on their own platform and therefore as a Swedish company under Swedish law. In addition, all files are stored in our own servers located in computer halls located in Sweden with our partner Telia Carrier. Having our own platform also means that we can offer custom cloud services to secure, store and share files. That’s rather unique as well, Matz Karlsson finishes.

    Christmas is here. Time to wake up our inner child and give the world a second chance?

  • Although rain drops are rolling down the window panes of our office, we are feeling the Christmas spirit. But in harmony with the rain that ought to be snow, some things in the world do not feel right.

    Every day we are met with news of terror, murder, climate crisis and tensions between nations. No doubt, this can leave us feeling a bit dismal.

    However, someone once said “each newborn child is a new chance” and at Christmas we are all children again, aren’t we? Also, after Christmas there is a new year coming, bringing a sense of new opportunities, a chance to do things over. To better ourselves. The holidays are a short rest, a chance to gather strength to create a better year. A better future.

    The future lies within the children, and that is why we are not giving anyone any presents this year. Instead, we are sending a donation to BRIS (Swedish Non-Governmental Organization working to protect and prioritize childrens rights (more)).

    However, we want to wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year and we do so with our, by now almost classic, Christmas film. Reminding us that we all need a good backup. Happy holidays!

    The new web interface is finished. This Monday, we push the button.

  • We are doing some final testing and minor adjustments, but this Monday we launch the new web interface. Welcome to the tool that gives you easy access and plenty of possibilities to handle your files – in any browser!

    Easier to navigate

    The new interface is optimized for current and future demands, and enables smoother work and navigation. For example, you will find a new side menu granting easy access to your whole account, at any time, anywhere in the structure of the interface.

    Stronger, lifting larger files

    Development increases file sizes anywhere you turn, but that is no longer a problem! The new interface knows no boundaries regarding the size of files.

    Good looking, on any screen

    Doing everything else, we obviously made everything nicer to the eye. The user experience is intuitively easier – on any screen. The interface adapts to your screen size, making it possible to download, share and edit files in for example Office Online just as smoothly, regardless if you are using a tablet or a computer.

    Can’t wait? 

    Log in and try the beta version today

    Update: 
    By now the interface is of course lauched. Log in to check it out.
