Brussels Signal will deliver rigorous reporting and analysis of the European Union. The news outlet aims to shake up the status quo by providing insightful and informed journalism that challenges prevailing ideas and policies, demands genuine accountability from decision-makers, and counters the marginalisation of dissenting voices on the issues facing Europe today. An early version of Brussels Signal opens May 31 with an invitation to join a live event with the new editors.

Norwegian ISP Altibox chooses Alinto's secure email platform to provide messaging services to its clients31.5.2023 11:00:00 EEST | Press release
Norwegian ISP Altibox has decided to outsource its email platform to Alinto, with the aim of modernising its messaging services for 180 000 clients in the Nordics. The services provided are based on the SOGomail server and the Cleanmail security service, hosted by Alinto. This move happens a few months after the takeover of the SOGo open-source project by Alinto. It confirms the editors’ ability to address projects on an international scale and cover the whole email chain with GDPR-compliant solutions. Modernisation of an email platform used by 180 000 clients Until 2022, Altibox had a messaging platform built and operated in-house. As that platform started to require extensive maintenance operations, Altibox had to move to a new solution. "We had two options : discontinue the service and delete all the emails – which was not acceptable from a client standpoint, or outsource our email services as we did not have any internal resources to create a new solution”, Marius Ekeland explains.
