Soliton stops the support for SecureContainer – DME
From December 2020, Soliton’s SecureContainer – DME will be discontinued and will no longer receive new software updates or functionalities. We would like to explain to you why, and what your options are if you are using SecureContainer – DME.
Since the launch of our first SecureContainer – DME, technology has developed at an exponential pace. Due to this transformation, we at Soliton have continued to deliver new functions through software updates. We are proud of the fact that we make solutions that last a long time and are still used by our customers. However, we have now come to the point that SecureContainer – DME has reached its limits in terms of performance, features and functionalities.
From December 31, 2020, SecureContainer – DME will officially reach End of Life and will no longer receive software updates or new functions. Without new software updates, access to services and the overall performance and functionality of SecureContainer – DME will expire over time.
Continue to use SecureContainer – DME, whereby you will no longer receive software updates and new functions.
Migrate to MailZen
Migrate to MailZen:
We have announced MailZen as the successor product that provides a better performance than SecureContainer – DME. Soliton MailZen does not require MDM and its improved architecture also enables new functionality to be easily added, based on ever-changing market demands. MailZen can also be easily used in a hosted environment. As with SecureContainer – DME, we will still offer MailZen as an on-premise solution.
Soliton has a special offer for those customers who wish to migrate from SecureContainer – DME to Soliton MailZen until end of March 2021. Please contact your business partners or our sales managers for the details on this offer. For more details on the new MailZen visit our product page or contact your business partner or sales manager at Soliton.
We understand that this announcement of discontinuing SecureContainer – DME may be unwelcome news to you. To facilitate the transition, Soliton will assist in the End of Life process as per below.
New version or features:
SecureContainer – DME will not be updated to support new versions/features in Exchange and IBM Domino. New versions/features might work with SecureContainer – DME but are not tested or supported by Soliton.
Soliton will no longer add new functionality to SecureContainer – DME.
Support for O365:
SecureContainer – DME will support O365 until 13 October 2020. SecureContainer – DME will not work with O365 after this date since O365 will stop the support for basic authentication on EWS which is the protocol used by SecureContainer – DME. Note that the support for basic authentication on EWS for on-premises Exchange is not affected.
For more detailed information on the support provided during the transition phase we advise you to contact your business partner or sales manager at Soliton.
We believe in freedom of choice. We hope that the choices we offer here – continue to use SecureContainer – DME without new software updates or migrate to MailZen – allow you to make a choice that suits you.
