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?
It is our mission to make secure communication easy. We understand the world we live in. Sensitive information is valuable and the process should work for you. We combine all of our expertise and skills to make the best product.
We want to work together to optimise your way of working. Our professionals help you navigating through legislation, policy, and the risks of the online world.
Security will soon be the default. Enriching communication by adding value to the content is the future. Think of the pseudonymisation of data, workflows, and digital signing. In this way, we make online communication much easier.
