In December 2015, Safe Swiss Cloud was named best practice for finance applications in the Cloud by the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) in the report "Secure Use of Cloud Computing in the Finance Sector"[4].

Safe Swiss Cloud collaborated with the Zurich University of Applied Sciences/ZHAW to research cyber intelligence and advanced cloud billing systems.[5] This research was supported by CTI, the Swiss government's research and innovation program for industry.

In late 2017, Everyware AG, a Swiss IT services company, acquired a controlling stake in Safe Swiss Cloud, leaving it in Swiss hands.[6]
