cryptovision has concluded a framework agreement with the procurement office of the Federal Ministry of the Interior (BMI). Through this agreement, authorities and federal institutions can purchase the cryptovision software GreenShield in the future via the Kaufhaus des Bundes (KdB) – directly and uncomplicatedly .
Founded in 2003, the Kaufhaus des Bundes is the online ordering platform for German authorities and federal institutions. cryptovision’s GreenShield will be available there under contract number 21230. The offer also includes accompanying services for the implementation, operation and support of the software.
GreenShield protects e-mails and files in a user-friendly way against manipulation and uninvited readers. State-of-the-art cryptography is used for this purpose. For e-mails, GreenShield offers end-to-end security. As a plug-in for Outlook and Notes, GreenShield integrates seamlessly into the respective e-mail program as an additional security layer. Users can sign and encrypt in their familiar environment with just a few intuitive mouse clicks. In addition, there are numerous convenience features that make life easier for users and administrators.
GreenShield is one of the few solutions of its kind to be approved by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) for processing classified information with classification level “Verschlusssache – Nur für den Dienstgebrauch” (VS-NfD).
Markus Hoffmeister, managing director of cryptovision, is pleased about the conclusion of the contract: “Protected e-mail communication of authorities and companies is subject to special legal requirements. We have therefore developed a highly secure end-to-end solution for e-mails which, thanks to the BSI approval, allows authorities and companies to comply with the requirements up to VS-NfD and at the same time offers users considerably more convenience than conventional solutions,” says Hoffmeister. “We are very pleased that we were able to convince the BMI procurement office with GreenShield.”
