Compliance and certifications
Ultra secure sovereign hosting: data and infrastructure security and sovereignty are key concerns for citizens, especially within the context of the mass domination of digital stakeholders from the US and China. This is why Scaleway designs, manages and operates its own data centers which meet European regulatory standards and certifications.
Scaleway is committed to a demanding certification process which corresponds to the highest market standards. Many of its products are already ISO 27001 and HDS certified, and our approach is leading us in the direction of ENISA certifications, a European certification that will ultimately replace the French SecNumCloud. Our data centers are designed to withstand fire risks and have obtained the most stringent APSAD certifications.
