June 9, 2014



ENP Newswire - 09 June 2014

Release date- 06062014 - Zug/Berlin - Virtual Network Consult (VNC) is a leading Commercial Open Source Solutions specialist, providing proven open source solutions to clients around the globe.

Zimbra, a leader in unified collaboration software, is a cornerstone of the VNC Business Cloud, which consists of commercial open source applications that cover a full range of business needs, from groupware, portal solutions, project management, CRM, ERP, backup, file sync and share to secure hosting & storage.

As a result of this partnership, VNC is able to provide enhanced open source solutions that are integrated with Zimbra.

'We are pleased to leverage VNC's open source expertise and local footprint to provide organizations globally with unified collaboration solutions built with open source roots,' said Jens Vang Lauridsen, Vice President of EMEA Sales at Zimbra. 'By partnering with VNC, we are able to reach multiple verticals that have a strong desire for collaboration solutions that are both secure and incorporate open standards.'

All VNC solutions are available on-premises or from the high security VNC datacenter in Switzerland. VNC software developments such as VNCtrustbase and VNCmiddleware provide a powerful framework for secure communication based upon Zimbra.

Highly used by banks (e.g. a large Bank in Switzerland, more information can be disclosed with an NDA) and government organizations, VNCtrustbase enables VNC customers to establish tap-proof, closed communication groups and integrate legally binding digital signatures, end-to end email encryption and VideoID using WebRTC technology. The strict utilization of commercial open source components guarantees full transparency and the protection of existing investments.

'Zimbra is much more than just email collaboration, with its open, integration technologies like Zimlets. Built using Zimbra's solution, this is definitely a reason for our various customers, in industries ranging from financial to banking, to select VNCtrustbase,' said Bernd Rodler, President at VNC.

Another VNC offering that incorporates Zimbra's solution is VNCmail+. VNCmail+ includes preconfigured Zimlets (i.e. web services components) such as the VNCsafe Zimlet. The VNCsafe Zimlet allows customers to integrate their Zimbra mailbox with ownCloud, a powerful open source sync & share solution. By providing these products, such as VNCtrustbase and VNCmail+, VNC is offering a business software stack that allows organizations to replace the typical commercial software stack.

Another VNC customer, the WASGAU AG, a specialist for fresh and quality-tested foods with more than 4,000 employees, about 90 hypermarkets and two production companies in Germany, emphasizes the advantages of Zimbra for the organization: 'The project was a win for the entire WASGAU Group - not only financially, but also on a functional level!'

'Having the ability to provide a full range of powerful and integrated synergetic products is what makes Zimbra a truly unified collaboration solution. VNC is proud to have Zimbra as a cornerstone of the VNC Business Cloud,' said Andrea Worrlein, Member of the Board at VNC.
