Ergon chooses Zivver to protect sensitive digital communications

Amsterdam, 25th July 2022 - Zivver, leader in secure digital communication solutions, has announced that social development organization, Ergon, has chosen Zivver's platform to empower employees who work with the sensitive information of job seekers to safely email data to relevant agencies. 

For five municipalities in the Eindhoven region, Ergon partly executes the Participation Act, including the Social Employment Act. The organization supports vulnerable people on the labour market to find and keep suitable jobs. As the five municipalities are Ergon's clients, it is therefore expected that, in the future, the organization will be required to comply with the municipal security standard BIO (Baseline Information Security Government). This, as well as Ergon’s belief that data protection is of the upmost importance, prompted the search for a solution that enables employees to act securely when sharing sensitive data. The organization chose Zivver as their digital security solution.

Arnout van Horssen, manager IT-Informatics at Ergon: "Sharing data securely requires a different way of thinking and working. We want to make it as easy as possible for our employees, which is why we chose Zivver. Thanks to its integration with Outlook, a select group of 50 employees can send sensitive information securely at the push of a button. But there is another advantage to Zivver. Through the application of artificial intelligence, Zivver instantly alerts the sender if the information is in danger of going to the wrong person, or if there is information in the email that should not be shared. This will be of great help to our employees in acting securely, effortlessly."

Wouter Klinkhamer, CEO of Zivver: "Municipalities have been obliged to comply with the BIO for several years now, and one of the consequences of this is that there is an increasing focus on solutions that guarantee the safe sharing of sensitive data. We think it is a good sign that organizations that work with municipalities also want to commit to this important security standard. We are excited that Ergon has chosen Zivver and look forward to close cooperation, so that together we can ensure that sensitive data does not fall into the wrong hands."

Zivver leads the 3rd generation of secure digital communications and provides effortless, smart and secure technology to organizations to safeguard sensitive information, while ensuring regulatory compliance and empowering individuals to work with minimal disruption. Zivver optimizes secure communications and productivity by adding a security and privacy layer on top of existing email systems, such as Outlook (Desktop and Microsoft 365) and Gmail. Founded in 2015, Zivver serves over 5,000 organizations across multiple markets and verticals including Financial Services, Local Government, Healthcare, Central Government, Legal and more. Zivver was identified as a representative vendor for Email Data Protection Specialists in Gartner’s 2021 and 2020 Market Guide for Email Security; is one of the CyberTech 100, which recognizes the world’s most innovative CyberTech companies for financial services, and is amongst the fastest-growing technology companies being nominated for Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 in 2021.
