As more and more companies look for reliability and security of their data online, given the spate of high profile hackings and data losses in recent years, it has become pertinent to choose Switzerland as a destination for hosting needs.
A country small in size, Switzerland is big on security now with regards to hosting data. Since Switzerland is not a member of the European Union, its independence is a huge factor in its ability to be a secure hosting destination.
For instance, fraudsters and hackers are far less likely to attack the data centres of a neutral country such as Switzerland and many companies are noticing this and making the choice to move their business there. It also boasts a strong economy and, in the ‘Economic Freedom’, is placed in the top 5. This stable economic and political landscape makes it a very attractive proposition for businesses looking to use a very secure hosting destination.
There are also a multitude of reliable companies offering ultra-fast connections in Switzerland, vital for working with businesses from abroad. Its central location also offers great protection from the elements with an extremely low chance of any natural disasters that may damage data centres and servers.
The country’s economic capital, Zurich, amongst other areas of Switzerland have advanced telecommunication technology to ensure critical business transactions and hosting services run smoothly. The security offered in a stable, neutral country like Switzerland is of utmost necessity in the technological world we are now in and most companies are willing to pay a premium for this comfort.
Switzerland can offer all of that with its location and modern infrastructure. Land locked and bordering Germany, Italy, France and Austria, there are many ways to travel there. Many companies wish to see the data centres and offices of the hosting company they may sign a lucrative contract with and getting there is quite easy, as all major airlines have flights in and out of the Zurich airport.
Moreso, getting there by car is easy and an EU driving licence will give you access to a car rental scheme. Switzerland also has some of the best roads in Europe so you’re guaranteed of a safe trip. There are also the usual European bus and train services which serve major towns and cities. With its 20 airports, flying into most areas around Switzerland is possible.
Above all, trust and reliability coupled with advanced technology and security are giving Switzerland its good name in the international market when it comes to secure hosting destinations. With many reputable companies offering these attractive services, there is really no reason to overlook Switzerland as a hosting partner.
