Optimation accredited for SEEMail

WELLINGTON-based software engineering company Optimation has secured a win with its secure internet email gateway.

Optimation has gained accreditation from the State Services Commission (SSC) for its SSI SEEMail server version 2.1 product, the first open source solution to be accredited for the SEEMail environment.

The Secure Electronic Environment (SEE) is an E-government initiative that is jointly sponsored by the SSC, Treasury and department of the prime minister and cabinet.

SEEMail is the SSC standard for encrypting data and provides a secure extranet for government agencies.

Optimation senior consultant Andrew McRae, the lead developer on version 2.1, says the SSC accreditation means the company can now market the product.

“At this stage I believe there’s only one other open source solution that’s received accreditation,” he says.

McRae says the IP for SEEMail belongs to the Ministry of Social Development and Optimation will provide services around it.

“However, the agency isn’t interested in making it proprietary and has always intended to make it available through open source.”

He says agencies with appropriate in-house IT management skills can easily implement and administer the server with backup from Optimation’s technical support team.

According to McRae, agencies not using open source software or lacking internal IT resources can use Optimation to install the server as a black box solution with system management, updates and maintenance covered in a service agreement.

Optimation says version 2.1 is cost effective as it runs on Linux, making it affordable for smaller agencies while scaling to reach the requirements of large organisations.
