Planned maintenance work

In order to offer you fast and secure services, we regularly modernize our software and hardware. To this end, software and hardware developers provide updates, which we check and carry out swiftly, especially where critical vulnerabilities are involved. In addition, we renew, exchange and extend server and network components. In order to be able to react quickly and flexibly, we determine adaptable time frames for maintenance. This allows you to make any security-related changes swiftly and to plan for potential downtime. Of course, we aim to keep disruptions due to maintenance work to a minimum.
