Kopano Groupware for Collax
Topics such as BYOD, file sharing and web meetings are not just buzzwords, but also increasingly dominate the everyday work of small and medium-sized companies. A company-wide available IT platform is essential for business communication. The Collax Groupware Suite facilitates teamwork through file sharing, web meetings, mailbox sharing, shared contact management and extended calendar functions. Thanks to the integrated mail server, the Collax Groupware Suite not only offers modern groupware functions, but also maximum e-mail security. The Collax e-mail archive enables revision-proof archiving of e-mails and electronic invoices (e-invoicing).
Groupware on the desktop, in the browser or mobile
The Groupware Suite provides all the familiar email, advanced calendar and contacts features you need to be productive. The browser-based interface gives you an overview of what’s important to you, whether it’s incoming email, your weekly schedule, or the contact details of the person you want to call.
Meet online in an incomparable video and audio quality, directly via the groupware WebApp. Use the presentation mode to increase your team’s productivity or simply share your screen so all participants look at the same document.
See who’s online and start an online meeting or chat with just one click.
Invite external participants to your web meeting via e-mail or directly from the meeting request. All you need is a browser to join your meeting.
File Sharing – Stay in control
It is easy to share files and folders using your existing storage tools like Collax Net Storage or Owncloud. With this feature you can browse your folders and keep control of who has access to shared data without switching to another application.
And if someone shares a file or folder with you, you can work on it directly from the WebApp interface.
With smooth synchronization, you always have up-to-date e-mails, tasks and contacts on your smartphone or tablet. Not only can you synchronize your company’s address book, you can also schedule meetings, view your emails or attachments, and reply from your phone. No additional applications required!
The Z-Push functionality is also Microsoft Outlook ™ compatible. Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016 can therefore also be configured to synchronize data via Z-Push.
Special server system
Efficient administration and monitoring, always up-to-date software Collax’s own browser-based user interface allows secure administration of the server from any location - locally and remotely. Comprehensive monitoring with e-mail notification simplifies the administrator’s work. The easy-to-use update management updates the server software quickly and easily.
Storage and Data Protection
The file server supports all common protocols. The integrated backup/restore allows comprehensive backup plans and supports multiple storage media up to tape:
Central user administration, across multiple locations
The integrated directory service makes it easy to manage users, even across multiple locations. Intelligent tools make ActiveDirectory connectivity a breeze.

Find a Collax Partner
With Collax Central you always have an overview of all Collax servers. This makes administration much easier. Thanks to active system monitoring, Collax Central points out problems at an early stage and offers an effective tool for efficient and fast administration. This is where all the information comes together. This allows problems in a large server landscape to be identified at a glance. Sporadic and regular maintenance tasks are completed quickly.
Always everything in view
The compact overview provides immediate access to all important information on hardware utilization, updates and license terms. Many more detailed information can be displayed with a single click. If maintenance work is due or a problem is detected, a further click is sufficient to perform the administration task.
Hierarchy and structure make the difference
All servers can be sorted into a freely configurable, hierarchical structure. The administrator can create his individual dashboard according to his requirements. Thus he has all information available quickly and clearly. The flexible search function as well as a multitude of filters complete the range of functions.
Collax Advanced Networking
Almost every company depends on a fast and functioning network connection. The module Collax Advanced Networking offers everything needed to keep the network running without restrictions, even at peak times. Important applications can be prioritized via bandwidth management. The Policy Based Routing function and Multi-WAN ensure that all data traffic is optimally distributed among the available connections. The module is rounded off by a intrusion detection and prevention system.
Bandwidth management enables applications to use the network bandwidth more efficiently. For modern communication over the Internet, such as VoIP or online meetings, it is important to manage and prioritize bandwidth intelligently.
A very elegant method of channeling data in a network is offered by policy-based routing. If there are multiple paths for the data to reach a destination, the path can be specified depending on the protocol. The rules can be applied to both forwarded and locally originated connections (e.g., proxy, VPN).
Multi-WAN makes it possible to bundle lines and thus establish network connections extremely cost-effectively with high bandwidths. Integrated load balancing ensures load distribution as well as maximum throughput and fail-safety.
Intrusion detection and prevention
Intrusion detection and prevention (IDS: Intrusion Detection System / IDP: Intrusion Prevention System) provides additional security. The system detects malicious attempts to gain unauthorized access. Attackers can be automatically blocked by the firewall even before they can cause any damage.
- Smooth communication even when the Internet connection is busy.
- Bundling of multiple Internet connections
- Structured distribution across multiple Internet connections
- Intrusion prevention
Collax Avira AntiVir
Collax Avira AntiVir is a high-quality and reliable product for protection against viruses and other malware. It is based on the technology of the market-leading anti-virus company Avira.
Collax has perfectly adapted the award-winning and widely used anti-virus software to the Collax C servers. The solution is seamlessly integrated at the click of a mouse and immediately offers maximum protection against threats from the Internet. Collax Avira AntiVir is based on three different mechanisms: E-mail scanner, file scanner and web traffic scanner.
Collax offers the following variants of the proven anti-virus software:
E-mail Scanner with File Scanner
Installed on the Collax Groupware Suite, the Collax Avira AntiVir extension offers protection against unwanted e-mails and malicious content. We seamlessly integrate Avira’s e-mail scanner and file scanner technology into our servers.
Web Traffic Scanner with File Scanner
In a second variant, we offer the Web Traffic Scanner together with the File Scanner as an extension for the Collax Groupware Suite. This allows you to efficiently and easily control Internet usage within your company. At the same time, the file scanner provides more security by checking data that has been manually brought into the company (e.g. via USB sticks or smartphones).
As a third variant, we only offer the file scanner as an extension to the Collax Groupware Suite. This ensures maximum security for all your data. The file scanner reliably identifies and eliminates infected documents.

- Administrator alert
- Quarantine for unknown archive formats / file formats

Archive for e-mail and e-invoicing
Every taxable company is instructed to archive business-relevant e-mails and e-bills (electronic invoices) in a revision-proof manner. The Collax E-Archive is a simple way to meet the requirements of the Ministry of Finance. In order to facilitate the daily work with e-mails, each employee can be given access to his or her own e-mail archive.
The Collax E-Archive can be activated quickly and easily. It archives incoming as well as outgoing emails and e-bills and forwards an unchanged copy to the mail server. This process is automatic and tamper-proof. Archiving can also be performed if the mails are forwarded to another mail server.
One archive for each user
Beyond the obligation, each employee can be granted access to his or her own e-mail archive. A powerful search function makes it possible to conduct extensive searches in old correspondence. Each user can restore e-mails himself. In addition, the archiving ensures a lasting relief of the mail server.
Compliance with legal requirements
The e-mails are indexed before being forwarded to the mail server. This means that the e-mails can be found more quickly later. They also receive a signature so that authenticity and integrity can be checked when they are retrieved. Images for read-only media such as CD, DVD or Blu-ray Disc are automatically generated for long-term, revision-proof storage.
If it becomes necessary to search the entire archive, there is an auditor who can access all emails and e-bills. In order to prevent misuse, it is necessary for a second user (e.g. a works council) to confirm full access with a second password according to the four-eyes principle. An e-mail notification to a stored address is triggered. Every search carried out by the auditor is logged by the system.
The ministry of finance has concretized with the principles to the orderly guidance and storage of books, records and documents in electronic form as well as to the access to data (GoBD) how with tax-relevant dates, that were not processed in paper form, must be proceeded. The guideline prescribes a long-term, unchangeable and safe storage of the messages. A conventional archiving as expression excludes it explicitly.
- Audit-proof storage of e-mails and e-bills
- Meets legal requirements
- Four-eyes principle
- Verifiable data integrity (signing of archived e-mails)
- Tamper-proof archive
- Open, platform-independent archive format
- Archive for any e-mail server
- Simple and fast procedure
