SECURITY is important – that’s nothing new. Every day, we experience just how difficult it is to meet the ever-changing security requirements and we ask ourselves – how secure are we really?

The virus scanner on my home PC updates remarkably often, but this doesn’t necessarily make me feel more secure. After all, with me there is more chance of destroying my data in a torrent of coffee.

But although in my case a stable mug would reduce the risk of data loss by as much as 70 %, companies face much tougher challenges in terms of data security and protection.

In the following success stories, you will find out how our products are used to protect business-critical email communication, Office documents and health data. Due to constant technical innovation, identified gaps and new standards, there is only one constant when it comes to data security: change. 

And on the subject of standards: Electronic invoices are increasingly common. Large companies have been using this method of billing for some years now. But the potential in terms of time and cost savings is attracting an increasing number of small and medium-sized enterprises as well. Our products support the ZUGFeRD file format. Find out more in our special article on the subject “ZUGFeRD electronic invoices in PDF/A format”.

Harald Wild, Project Manager,

Handling health data requires a very high level of security and encryption. MEDICPROOF therefore needed a tool that could support the secure encryption of PDF Files and be integrated into its existing application.
