Earlier this year, we from Zarafa, have informed our ecosystem about the direction of Zarafa’s future product development. It was one, very long newsletter where we showed how we see the world of communication & sharing. Most people only remembered one thing, though: Zarafa stops Outlook.
We have all got something to hide. There are some data that the law itself states not everybody should have access to.
Data need to be protected
Some data need to be protected. We need to make sure that we can reliably verify the identity of the individual attempting to access the data. To this end, there are systems available that we can employ to manage identities. Like Univention Corporate Server, for example. The simplest version of verifying an authorised user’s identity is also the one which has been tried and tested for the longest time: whether the user knows a secret. A password.
Yet simple passwords are falling more and more into disuse. For a long time now we’ve heard from reports across all media that simply knowing the secret “password” is no longer enough for reliably guaranteeing identities and protecting access to our data.
This week saw the official launch of the new Core Edition of Univention Corporate Server. With this move, we are now making it possible to employ our successful Open Source system for server and IT management free of charge in companies too.
A large community ensures ongoing enhancements and the solution usually has numerous, helpful plug-ins and themes, so that it can be used for multiple business requirements. Furthermore, the speed with which new features are released is often impressive. From a functional point of view, the result is usually just great.
