The IT system house of the German Armed Forces, BWI, has concluded a contract with cv cryptovision GmbH for the use of the GreenShield e-mail security software. Based on a corporate license, more than 160,000 communication subscribers will be successively equipped with the security software for e-mail encryption and digital signature. Cryptovision has been supplying the Bundeswehr with email security software for the electronic processing of classified information up to the classification level “VS-Nur den Dienstgebrauch” (VS-NfD) since 2004.

GreenShield protects e-mails and files on the basis of end-to-end encryption and enables the recipient to verify the integrity of the content and the sender by means of digital signatures. A decisive unique selling point is the interoperability of the cryptovision solution: GreenShield is the only email encryption solution for IBM / HCL Notes on the German market that has been approved by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). The solution’s multi-client capability is also unique: it supports both Outlook and Notes on the same device. Thus, GreenShield enables a smooth migration from Notes to Outlook.

The encryption of files and e-mails is done with just a few clicks and intuitively for the user in the familiar environment of his e-mail program. The GreenShield plug-in integrates seamlessly into the email program as an additional layer of security and offers both users and administrators many additional convenience features.
