Several products have been put through both open and closed testing for key criteria: in-house data management, security and user-friendliness.
When it became clear that the tested solutions were not secure or provided insufficient security guarantees, LocalBox was developed and tailored to meet these criteria and thus fulfil the need of users to share information securely.
Collaboration of parties
Several government organizations initiated the development of LocalBox.
They all contributed part of the product. One developed an App, another developed part of the server, while others had specific functionalities built.
This collaboration of parties all had the same objective in mind: a way to securely share and exchange files.
