vertical lineDear visitor,

Ever since Open-Xchange was founded back in 2005 the philosophy driving the company has been clear. Our primary goal has always been to keep the internet free and open like it was planned to be. We do this by creating software that helps our community, partners, and customers to provide services that are competitive with the monopolies.

Through our products we've created an open, safe environment for people to connect and collaborate. We build platforms based on the idea that maximising value to both customers and users is a sustainable long term strategy in fast moving competitive markets.

Open-Xchange products create vendor independence, and generate trust in our products by providing full transparency and control over system governance through our OS business model. With OX App Suite we develop user friendly and secure email and collaboration software, while PowerDNS and Dovecot Pro complete our offering with robust and scalable IMAP and DNS solutions. Hundreds of millions of users worldwide use Open-Xchange products at home or work.

Today, with a proven record in agile software development, we continue to evolve our products and services based on this approach by delivering the only integrated, open-source messaging, collaboration and productivity stack for Telcos, Hosters and Service Providers.

As we continue to push the boundaries of technology and strive for excellence, we are grateful for your support and belief in our vision. Thank you for being a part of our journey to shape a better, more open internet for everyone.

Sincerely,

Andreas Gauger
