Overview over the Zertificon Product Range

The „Z1 SecureMail” product family copes with the requirements of organizations and enterprises of all sizes. The products follow the S/MIME, OpenPGP, https, and PDF encryption standards and are able to secure the entire email traffic by means of centralized encryption and electronic signature. Thus, Zertificon with Z1 SecureMail Gateway offers highly reliable, scalable, and cluster-capable enterprise solutions with data center and multi-tenant capabilities satisfying highest demands. In combination with Z1 Messenger enabling exchange with anybody – even with communication partners neither having PKI certificates nor PGP keys – this results in a comprehensive server solution for email encryption and signature – to be used as a “virtual mail room”. Z1 Messenger provides for the secure exchange of emails via encrypted protocol or web browser as well as, alternatively, via PDF encryption.
Using Z1 SecureMail Station particularly recommends itself for KMUs. It is characterized by a centralized certificate management where the certificates and OpenPGP keys of the communication partners are rolled out to and managed by an individually developed centralized Z1 Global TrustPoint.

In order to complement the portfolio, Zertificon offers the new Z1 SecureMail Easy solution thus making the top Z1 technologies of the enterprise products also available to the SOHO market. They have been adapted functionally and with regard to price to the requirements of small offices and home offices and have been accordingly simplified. Additionally, the solution like Z1 Messenger provides for the browser based exchange of messages via Z1 WebSafe or Z1 KickMail supporting the secure transmission via PDF and particularly offering users without own PKI a comfortable solution. Z1 SecureMail Easy is available in different variants and through its S/MIME-/PGP capability provides for the unification of different solution worlds where the Z1 SecureMail products are predominantly used as appliances.
