What is your challenge?

To show what makes ZIVVER unique, we like to explain the challenges we can solve for you and how. For instance, you would not want to appear in the news because of a data breachYou can be fined up to €20 million—and that’s before you count recovery costs and reputational damage. Below you find the major challenges that organisations are struggling with.

The main cause of data breaches and at the same time the least-known challenge is the human error. Consider, for example, accidentally sending sensitive information to the wrong recipient, or the loss of a device. Merely applying encryption will not solve this challenge.

Complying with legislation and regulations

Keeping hackers at bay

Using shadow software

Controlling information flows

Why would you want to solve this challenge?

Firstly, each organisation shares information online. It is not the question if a data breach will occur, but rather when. Moreover, the impact of a breach of sensitive data (medical or financial data or contracts) is enormous. A data breach can contain data from hundreds of thousands of people. Leaking competition-sensitive information can have far-reaching financial consequences.

Secondly, the possibilities to share information are innumerable. These solutions, however, are not always secure or easy to work with. Encryption is important, but, without additional measures, it offers no protection against human errors. You only truly protect information using a solution that is secure, easy, and supportive of your current work process.

How does ZIVVER help?


First of all, communication must be secure. We offer security at three essential moments. Before sending: by checking the recipient and the content. During: by protecting against hackers with encryption and TLS. Afterwards: by keeping control by logging and retrieving messages.

Where it all started…


ZIVVER was devised by Rick Goud during his work as a strategy consultant. Wherever Rick came, a lot of sensitive data was processed, such as patient data, price agreements, market performance and contracts. Quite often, he noticed that people made use of solutions where security and feasibility were unclear. Together with ZIVVER’s founders Vincent van Donselaar and Alwin Schoemaker, Rick agreed: they had to find a solution that is both technically strong and super user-friendly. For, no matter how superior your software is, if people cannot use it, it does not work.


From the moment Rick thought of the idea of developing a solution for all problems concerning the exchange of sensitive information, Wouter Klinkhamer (who was his colleague at Gupta at that time) was involved at ZIVVER. Where Rick, together with Alwin and Vincent, focused mainly on developing the product in that period, Wouter dedicated himself to the professionalisation of the company. Because of his knowledge of the healthcare market, Wouter knows how software can really support organisations. He enjoys developing ZIVVER from a good concept to a worldwide success.


Early 2017, henQ invested in ZIVVER. As a consequence of this investment and other factors, the team grew considerably. With all its in-house knowledge, ZIVVER’s product portfolio and customer base expanded as well. We developed the mobile app for Android and iOS, for example, and we expanded to the municipal market and set up large customers with secure communication. Among our customers are Gooise Meren, mental healthcare institution Rivierduinen and Sint Jans Gasthuis Hospital. Also of interest: the introduction of our monthly get-together including playing shuffleboard and beer pong. To this day, we compete for the cup.


ZIVVER is growing fast, as you can tell from this picture. We consist of approximately forty people, we are already with more colleagues than when this picture was taken. In 2018, we continue our growth and already more than eight hundred customers communicate securely. Our developers have been busy too. With our Outlook Web Access plug-in and the DLP solution, we offer secure and easy solutions to more e-mail providers. The year is of course not over yet and we keep on growing, internationally as well. Do you want to join our team?
