To this end, the two companies have concluded a strategic partnership agreement. In addition to their partnership, they will continue to be involved in the jointly founded association ALASCA e.V., which promotes the (further) development of operational, open cloud infrastructures. This is accompanied by joint work on Yaook, the lifecycle management system for open cloud infrastructures.

The SecuStack technology stack has been part of the SINA Cloud since January 1, 2024 and will be further developed by secunet subsidiary SysEleven. For existing customers, maintenance of the SecuStack product is still contractually guaranteed.

“I am delighted to have founded secustack together with Dr. Marius Feldmann from Cloud&Heat and thus laid an essential foundation for the development and operation of secure cloud infrastructures. In the new constellation, secustack’s approach and technological achievements will be in good hands and contribute to the optimization of our product portfolio. With Cloud&Heat, we also have a strong partner at our side with whom we can work together on the future of KRITIS-compliant digital infrastructures,” says Dr. Kai Martius, Chief Technology Officer at secunet.

secustack GmbH was founded in March 2019 by Cloud&Heat and secunet. With its technology stack of the same name (“SecuStack”), the company provided a fully comprehensive and security-hardened cloud operating system and enabled companies and institutions with security-critical applications to move to the cloud. With end-to-end encryption of data in the cloud, comprehensive key management, infrastructural hardening and a wide range of user-oriented options for controlling the keys, a solution was created to protect and control their own data.
