As IT systems become more open and give users greater flexibility, the strategic importance of security is growing. Both communication and stored data need to be protected. The advance of global connectivity demands fast access to data – at any time, in any place, whatever device it is stored on. It follows that no organization can afford to overlook security loopholes. In worst-case scenarios, the consequences could threaten their very existence. The consequences of data abuse or manipulation can be serious enough, but the loss of trust among customers and investors can be even more devastating. In the whole area of IT security, companies therefore need to prepare themselves for the future – not least because strict privacy and data protection provisions require them to do so.

S/MIME certificates comply with strict security requirements and exist in a variety of forms. Depending on the intended use – to protect an e‑mail or sign a contract, for example – the complexity of sourcing, managing and handling certificates varies considerably. The first important step is to choose the "right" kind of certificate.
D‑TRUST is the trust center operated by Germany's Federal Printing Office. In its capacity as a D‑TRUST reseller, Allgeier IT provides a platform that makes it easy to source certificates for participation in calls for tender and e‑mail communication between individual persons.
