The Czech company IceWarp succeeded in a report Digital collaboration platform for the public sector by the Swedish government and became one of the three recommended alternative solutions for digital cooperation between public sector organisations. In addition to renowned competitors such as Microsoft and Google, IceWarp can meet the demands of Swedish institutions for information security or personal data protection and strengthen their digital sovereignty. The IceWarp solutions are attractive mainly because of the possibility of local data storage and especially due to the transparency of working with data and sensitive information, which is a necessity in the public sector.
IceWarp has captivated Swedish institutions with its cloud office tools, which compete fully with Google Workspace and Microsoft 365. “The main reason why the Swedish institutions ranked IceWarp among the top three recommended solutions is the need for transparent work with data, as well as the possibility of storing them locally,” comments Filip Korbel, Sales Director at IceWarp.
The attention of Swedish authorities have been attracted by tools such as email client, calendar, group chat, video conferencing, task and document management, as well as online document editing option. All are available in a web interface, desktop and mobile application. All functions can be used in a browser environment without the need to install anything on the user’s computer.
“Public institutions should make full use of the potential of digitalisation and focus on suppliers who, from the beginning, place emphasis on the protection of sensitive data and automatically implement cyber security tools in their solutions. This would eliminate the additional cost of finding another cybersecurity provider,” explains Adam Paclt, CEO of IceWarp, and continues: “Public institutions should not be the one adapting to existing solutions, but software providers should tailor their apps to client needs and legislative requirements. Crucial is the complete change of approach and the search for a holistic solution for the public sector and the IT industry.”
