TÜV-certified security: maincubes receives ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification

maincubes FRA01. Offenbach am Main. Germany

maincubes FRA01. Offenbach am Main. Germany

TÜV-certified security. The international standard certifies that, in addition to the entire infrastructure and technology

FRANKFURT AM MAIN, HESSEN, DEUTSCHLAND, August 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The maincubes data center in Offenbach near Frankfurt is comprehensively ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified. The international standard certifies that, in addition to the entire infrastructure and technology, the data center's services, processes and personnel resources also meet the highest security standards. All contractual and legal requirements and guidelines for data protection and data and information security such as the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) are comprehensively fulfilled. maincubes thus offers certified data security "Made in Germany".

The highly sensitive security concept, which has been confirmed by an independent auditor from TÜV Saarland, covers both IT and physical security: While the maincubes secureexchange platform integrates not only the latest security standards but also the highly secure Telekom Magenta security portfolio and thus offers complete protection against digital attackers, state-of-the-art biometric access controls, a 24-hour security service and comprehensive surveillance using cameras and motion sensors prevent physical intruders. In addition, a redundant and uninterruptible power supply, state-of-the-art fire protection concepts and the latest passive cooling systems with Kyoto cooling guarantee the greatest possible reliability and availability. Already in the planning phase of the data center, the focus was on offering all areas – from operational security and legal security to technical security including innovative cooling and energy concepts – on a new level. maincubes is thus one of the most modern and efficient data centers worldwide.

The data center operator also received the ISO certificate in record time thanks to its innovative and above-average redundant security systems: after only ten months and in only a single pass, the TÜV inspector certified that the data center meets the strict requirements of the ISO standard. It usually takes many years and several attempts before data centers can guarantee a similarly high level of security.

True innovation demands sustainability
Comprehensive security is never complete, but an ongoing process. maincubes therefore pursues the strategy of inseparably combining innovation and sustainability: On the one hand, all external and internal security standards are always put to the test thanks to annual monitoring audits; on the other hand, the company continuously invests in new security solutions. The TÜV-certified ISO certificate is initially valid for three years.

"We want to offer our customers a truly secure home for their IT. That's why we're committed to meeting and exceeding current security standards to protect our customers and their data from tomorrow's potential threats today. Looking at other companies shows that many do not meet or cannot meet this challenge. We are pleased that this independent ISO certification has given us the title of a pioneer data center," says Albrecht Kraas, CTO and one of the managing directors of maincubes.

Modern Interface Intranet

Out-of-the-Box SP Intranet: 3 Interface Choices

SP Workplace Solutions V12: A next generation Intranet Portal Suite for Modern SharePoint Online / Office 365: Out-of-the box suite of full solution templates

What we have done is to plug some significant holes that exist in the base modern sites in SharePoint that create real governance issues and limited ability to manage content on the site.”

— Darrell Trimble CEO at SP Marketplace

PENN VALLEY, CA, USA, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Penn Valley, CA — SP Marketplace (www.spmarketplace.com), the leader in Office 365 business portals and applications, announced SP Workplace Solutions Version 12. SP Workplace Solutions is a complete suite of portal and application templates “natively” built on SharePoint Online that drives Office 365 ROI and adoption by transforming it into a Digital Workplace. Anchored by an Intranet, the solutions deliver an integrated operational portal structure that includes departments like IT, HR, Marketing, Sales, Facilities and others. Targeted at small to medium organizations, these are “full solution” products, not tools which are no-code and 100% customizable by business power-users.

New Version Enhances Modern SharePoint Sites
SP Workplace Solutions V12 is natively built on SharePoint Online to enhance the base SharePoint sites capabilities. The Intranet Portal module can be deployed any of three ways. It can be deployed using the Classic User Interface (UI), the Modern UI, or as a Communications Site. Additionally, within the sites, the Content Management features are significantly upgraded in the areas of governance and content management. The Content Management upgrades include:

• Full administration management across all content via an easy to use Content Management Dashboard
• Ability to approve, target and set publish dates for News, Announcements and Events
• Added Promoted Links to the Modern Pages giving the ability to manage links from a list with targeting and
scheduled publishing
• Supports roll-up of News, Announcements and Event from Department Portals
• Eliminates the need for Content Managers to have a deep understanding of SharePoint

“What we have done is to plug some significant holes that exist in the base modern sites in SharePoint that create real governance issues and limited ability to manage content on the site”, stated Darrell Trimble CEO at SP Marketplace. “Rather than storing content in web parts on the page, we use SharePoint lists to store content, which allows for approvals, security and audience targeting and provides new web parts to display the content much like the standard parts from Microsoft.”

Drives Office 365 Adoption by Seamlessly Integrating with Office 365 Services
SP Workplace Solutions V12 also drives Office 365 adoption by integrating Intranet and Department Portals with Office 365 Groups and Teams. The operational portal structure provides context in which users can access the myriad of available Office 365 services. By design, portals for departments link to the corresponding Office Group or Team. Additionally, department staff can easily access the department One Drive, Planner or Calendar from with in the operational SharePoint Portal. The MyWorkspace page in the Department Portals provides a common place to access email, calendar, contacts, tasks and documents stored in Office 365 or the SharePoint portal.

SP Workplace Solutions serves as a bridge between Office 365 Group or Team sites and SharePoint operational portals. Rather than being overwhelmed with the Office 365 app launcher and lots of icons, the user can access the same services in the context of their work. This seamless integration helps drive adoption and use of more Office 365 services toward realizing the vision of a Digital Workplace.

“The goal of a Digital Workplace is to make it easy to do business inside the organization”, states Trimble. “With SP Workplace Solutions V12, organizations can define a common business structure for communications, and provide access to resources (documents etc), services and processes leveraging Office 365.”

SP Workplace Solutions V12 will be available in early September 2018. Current SP Marketplace subscribed customers can apply for an in-place upgrade to their existing products to take advantage of the new features.

U.S District Court, Eastern District of Louisiana, found that individual living and working in Texas does not have sufficient minimum contacts with Louisiana

Wallace Meyaski LLC (N/A:N/A)

… the Court … considered the arguments we presented that Mr. B. lacks sufficient minimum contacts with Louisiana necessary to force a non-resident to defend himself in another state …”

— K Todd Wallace, Attorney in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The law firm Wallace Meyaski LLC announced today that attorney Kenneth Todd Wallace was able to successfully move a federal court case to his client’s home state of Texas. Judge Eldon E. Fallon of the Eastern District of Louisiana ordered that this case (Security Data Supply, LLC et al v. Nortek Security and Control, LLC et al) be transferred to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas.

Comments K. Todd Wallace: “This order is of crucial importance in this case in that the Court properly concluded that it does not have personal jurisdiction over an individual client who lives and works in another state. Instead, to continue a lawsuit against him, it must be pursued in his home state of Texas.”

In this case, Plaintiffs Security Data Supply, LLC (“SDS”), and its franchise locations, brought claims for antitrust and price discrimination violations and violations of state laws in Louisiana, Texas, and California. While SDS is a wholesale distributor of electronic security systems and sells these systems through franchise retail locations, SDS filed antitrust and price discrimination claims against Defendants Nortek Security and Control (“Nortek”), Wave Electronics, Inc. (“Wave”), and Mr. Earnest Bernard. Nortek is a manufacturer of electronic security systems; Wave is a wholesale distributor of electronic security systems in competition with while E.B. is a former sales representative.

SDS and Wave sell Nortek products in direct competition with each other. SDS alleges that while E.B. was employed at Nortek, he provided Wave with preferential pricing on Nortek products to the exclusion of Wave’s competitors. SDS further alleges that Nortek sold identical products to SDS and Wave but intentionally discriminated in price, providing a lower price to Wave through a “Four Star Program,” a type of rebate program. SDS believes that this program allowed Wave to sell Nortek products at a lower price than SDS could purchase them. SDS also alleges that Nortek management was aware of this preferential pricing scheme and allowed it to continue long after E.B. left the company. The defednatns, including E.B., has denied these unfounded allegations throughout the litigation. SDS alleges that they have been been injured and SDS has lost at least 59 clients and $9.5 million per year. Therefore, SDS bring claims against Defendants for violations of the Robinson-Patman Act (“RPA”) (15 U.S.C. §13(a), (c), (d), (f)), and state law claims of corporate bribery and violations of state trade practices acts.

E.B sought to dismiss all claims against him, in part, based upon a lack of personal jurisdiction in a Louisiana federal court. Judge Eldon E. Fallon of the Eastern District of Louisiana found that Mr. B. is an individual residing in the state of Texas. The Court noted that, since he was an employee of Nortek and worked in Texas, therefore, the Eastern District of Louisiana does not have general jurisdiction over him. Additionally, the Court found that Plaintiffs did not allege in their complaint that Mr. B. traveled to, or acted in, or directed any other actions within the state of Louisiana. Therefore, Mr. B. lacked sufficient contacts with Louisiana that would allow the Louisiana Court to exercise specific jurisdiction over him.

Mr. Wallace states, “as you can imagine we are very pleased that the Court properly considered the arguments we presented that Mr. B. lacks sufficient minimum contacts with Louisiana necessary to force a non-resident to defend himself in another state. If this case is to continue, Texas is the only appropriate venue.”
