Z1 SecureMail Family from Zertificon – now with an integrated ERP connection

Berlin, 26. April 2010

Email encryption solution subjected to further optimisation

Zertificon Solutions GmbH have now equipped their “Z1 SecureMail Gateway” e-mail encryption solution with an ERP-Connector integrated into the administrative interface. It is thus now possible to easily connect via web GUI to Active Directory and Lotus Notes as well as to other LDAP directories. Existing users and groups, as well as client structures if required, are now automatically synchronised with “Z1 SecureMail Gateway”. This will make it even more efficient to run solutions, especially in enterprise environments, by using the simple ERP-Connector.

With its encryption technology and digital signatures, the “Z1 SecureMail Gateway” provides centrally administered security for all e-mail traffic from companies and organisations. With the development of the integrated ERP-Connector, which is an integral part of the new “Z1 SecureMail 4.2.0” release, Zertificon have once again increased the user friendliness of their solutions.

This is what happens in practise: the Zertificon solution is automatically synchronised with the Active Directory. By using a specific search filter, it is possible to synchronise not only the individual clients with the integrated ERP-Connector, but also groups from standard LDAP or Active Directory Servers. The users are added, deleted and moved analogically to the associated directory. This component provides an extremely flexible administration configuration and can thus cater for all user defined requirements. It is included as an ERP-Connector license feature. The established ERP-Connector SDK is, as usual, available for more complex connections in non-standard-ERP environments.

Dr. Burkhard Wiegel, Managing Director of Zertificon Solutions GmbH, explains: “Companies and organisations want to concentrate on their core activities and want their e-mail traffic to be as simple as possible but nevertheless secure. When developing new features we therefore attach great importance to sustainable components which contribute to the simplification of solutions and which help unburden our customers.”
