What makes ZIVVER reliable?

Now and then, we exchange sensitive information be it e-mail, Whatsapp and more. Increasingly such personal information is shared in the field like healthcare, law, banking and more. In this case, one cannot share patient report, account details or contract over regular e-mail or chat which are vulnerable to hacking and leaks.

This is where ZIVVER comes into the play! The solution by ZIVVER can be used within your standard e-mail, like outlook, via WhatsApp or other user-friendly apps.

The company uses application that helps in securing sensitive information before, during and after sending messages and large files up to 5,000GB.

Since the introduction of the platform in 2017, ZIVVER has gained a considerable market share in the Dutch healthcare and public sector, including 20% ​​of all Dutch hospitals and 20% of Dutch municipalities.

Triple safe technology

According to Rick Goud, co-founder of ZIVVER, most of the programs, available right now doesn’t offer a complete solution. It is either safety or user-friendly, no middle ground. In this case, ZIVVER provides a tool called ‘Triple Safe’ to prevent data leaks and manage risks by preventing human error and ensuring that no one including hackers can access it. Further, ZIVVER also offers the possibility that, if you accidentally were not at home, you can withdraw an e-mail.

The software works with Outlook and connects seamlessly with other systems. Because of this user-friendliness, ZIVVER also sees increasing interest from other markets like the legal profession, business service providers and insurers.

Moreover, the Amsterdam organisation, ZIVVER recently contracted several hospitals in Belgium and Germany, marking the beginning of rapid internationalisation.
