Advantages of Atlassian Cloud at a glance

1. Advanced data security

In the age of remote work and cybersecurity risks, data protection and the secure granting of access rights are of great importance to companies. With Atlassian, you have a partner you can fully trust. Security is considered Atlassian’s cornerstone and is tightly integrated into Atlassian Cloud. To ensure enterprise data is protected, Atlassian works with in-transit and at-rest data encryption, as well as Mobile Device Management and IP positive lists. Security controls such as SAML SSO and SCIM User Lifecycle Management provide additional security. In addition, Atlassian Access enables organizations to protect their data with authentication controls. The solution provides enterprise-wide visibility and centralized controls for security and user management across all Atlassian Cloud products.

2. Meet extensive compliance requirements

To ensure that moving to the cloud protects sensitive workloads while implementing and complying with complex regulatory requirements, rulebooks, and regulations, Atlassian Cloud meets numerous global compliance requirements with features such as data residency and coverage for SOC2, PCI DSS, ISO 27001/27018, DSGVO, and BaFin. These coverages are continuously expanding to help organizations meet their compliance mandates. Furthermore, Atlassian’s cloud products are periodically audited by independent third parties for compliance with applicable global security, privacy and compliance requirements and are certified accordingly.

3. Meet highest privacy requirements
