Where is Mailfence for Business hosted?
Cloud (our servers) Hosting the service on our servers allows for cost reduction in case of limited number of users. You benefit from a Service Level Agreement (SLA) that guarantees application availability. Mailfence for Business is hosted on the professional infrastructure in Belgium, offering the highest availability and security guarantees.
License (your servers) You host the application on your own servers and are responsible for its availability. This only makes sense in case you have more than 1000 users. Mailfence runs on Linux servers with a preference for the Debian flavour.
Authentication and provisioning
Your business might already have a central authentication system for different services. Our Single Sign-On (SSO) procedure avoids requesting a second authentication. We also offer the possibility to integrate with your LDAP, Active Directory or CAS in order to automate the provisioning. Besides SSO, the API allows to automate following tasks:
Creation of accounts
Placing accounts in a group
Removing members from any group
Setting account subscription and expiration date
Delegating the management of passwords
Adding events to a personal or group calendar
Mailfence for Business API allows for advanced management of users. Our API is based on XML-RPC. The Mailfence for Business API contains more than 50 commands and constantly evolves to meet our customers needs. Our API, and the XML-RPC protocol it relies on, are so easy to use that you can get started in one hour.
