Connect organizations with SEFOS


In order to use SEFOS, each organization needs to be registered in a SEFOS node.


The registration is done through Meaplus, or any of our authorized partners. This is were you decide for a local installation of your SEFOS node or as a service. 


SEFOS is installed as an add-in to Outlook's local or web-based email client. The installation can easily be managed centrally through the Office 365 admin center.


Each organization decides which login method is to be allowed. The invitation to the service is sent out via e-mail from SEFOS admin console. 


If a different client certificate is desired other than what is currently available, SEFOS can be adapted as needed. Contact Meaplus for more information.


Information sent to one or more recipients is encrypted through the organization's SEFOS node and then sent as an attached encrypted file. 


The information is protected with strong encryption throughout the transport and until the recipient has identified and opened the message. 


This way, SEFOS can easily connect different organizations, authorities and companies both within the same region but also across national borders.

Interoperability between organizations and countries

Once companies become connected to their own SEFOS node and users have been registered, it is easy to communicate with other organizations within the network. In this way, we can easily create interoperability between different organizations regardless of geographical location.
