Kolab Now Integrates Collabora Online

Jul 26, 2017

Kolab Now subscribers now have access to Collabora Online.

Kolab Systems AG, a Switzerland-based, in cooperation with Collabora Productivity, a UK-based company that offers LibreOffice-based solutions, are offering a browser-based online office suite. Kolab Now customers can now run fully featured Collabora Online to create and edit all their documents.

Kolab offers standalone, fully open source Kolab Groupware solutions that anyone can run on their servers; they also offer Kolab Now, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that is similar to Google Apps for businesses, but with privacy in mind.

In a press release, Kolab said, “With Kolab Now, your data is stored by a Swiss company; using open source, peer-reviewed and audited software; developed by some of the most privacy-conscious engineers in the world; and protected by Switzerland’s strictest privacy laws. We have integrated Kolab Now’s new office apps into a space so safe and private that future Edward Snowdens shall feel safe and secure.”

Because the political landscape is changing, with state-sponsored cyberattacks on the rise and governments becoming hostile toward the privacy of their citizens, it’s becoming increasingly important to protect one’s privacy, especially the many professionals, like political activists, researchers, and investigative journalists, who need tools to protect their sources and communications. This is the market to which Swiss-based Kolab Systems AG means to cater.
