FileMaker Cloud secure in Switzerland

Easy to use and integrate

You always have secure and encrypted access to your FileMaker databases. You can use FileMaker with macOS, Windows or iOS. Access with WebDirect is also possible, so your FileMaker database is made available (almost) 1:1 in the web browser. In addition, you can use the FileMaker API, OData, PHP, ODBC, SQL and REST for external requests. FileMaker can be used as the middleware for everything your business needs, today and in the future, without the enormous costs of other software solutions.

You can connect your FileMaker hosting with other external databases and exchange data bi-directionally with third-party solutions. For example, integrate SQL, MySQL, Postgres or Oracle databases directly into your FileMaker Cloud solutions. For web shops, web-based CRM solutions, newsletters and other solutions, FileMaker provides you with a comprehensive front end.

FileMaker's enormous range of functions can be expanded with a large number of plugins and custom functions. So it is possible to expand your FileMaker database, for example, to a complete eMail Client, an integrated to create agency software or to set up an image database.

If necessary, you can adapt your FileMaker databases to the requirements of your CI down to the last detail. You can use ready-made styles or generate your own styles. Depending on the requirements, you can only make selected functions visible to a limited group of users, so that inexperienced users do not have to despair of handling them.
With an extensive assignment of coordinated usage rights depending on the user type, you ensure a high level of security for your own data. AES-256 encryption of the FileMaker databases is also possible.
