PrivaSphere fokussiert sich auf "sichere Übertragung" und ergänzt sein Angebot für die Aufbewahrung nach Verfall  mit spezialisierten Archivierungsangeboten wie Swisscom Docsafe.

Die Swisscom ermöglicht es Privatanwendern gratis beliebige Dokumente in DocSafe aufzubewahren. So könnte z.B. ein PrivaSphere Nutzer seine sicheren Meldungen mit einem sicheren Zweit-Pop3s-Konto im Mailprogramm  herunterladen und diese lokalen Meldungen in den DocSafe hochladen.

Da solche manuelle Umspeicherung von Ihrem lokalen Gerät zu Docsafe aufwändig werden kann, bietet PrivaSphere zusammen mit Swisscom die Automatisierung dieser Dienstleistung an.

Vorgehen zur Aktivierung

  • loggen Sie in Swisscom Docsafe ein
  • Wählen Sie unter 'Firmen' PrivaSphere aus
  • klicken Sie auf "... auf dem Online Portal PrivaSphere bestellen"
  • Sie werden zum Login von PrivaSphere geführt
  • Loggen Sie mit Ihrer eMail Adresse und Ihrem Passwort auf PrivaSphere ein
  • Akzeptieren Sie Swisscom Docsafe als Speicherort für Ihre vertraulichen eMails
  • Nun werden die ein und ausgehenden vertraulichen eMails von PrivaSphere in Docsafe als digital signierte PDF Dateien abgelegt.
  • Sie können diese PDF Dateien mit dem 'Viewer' in Docsafe oder Adobe Acrobat Reader anschauen.


Kosten: Die ersten 200 Einlieferungen sind gratis, darüber kostet es 5 Rappen bzw. nach Vereinbarung (allfällig Mengenrabatte).
