High-quality products and services that are reasonably priced, excellently trained and highly motivated staff and a unique positioning in the market will remain our strategy for healthy and independent growth.
is a core issue of SerNet. Software from various producers must be able to collaborate on many platforms in an optimum manner to achieve the best benefits for users. SerNet has been working towards achieving this goal since 1996.

SerNet offers its customers security according to BSI basic protection requirements and ISO 270001. The company provides external data protection officers and certified IT environments with company-own BSI-certified auditors.
is the leading no-cost alternative to Microsoft's Windows servers. SerNet's aim is to ensure that Samba can be used in as many applications as possible and develops this software on the commission of customers and on its own impetus - in close collaboration with the Samba team, many members of whom either work with or for SerNet.

SerNet offers the software for clients and servers, documentation, training and support, development and complete deployments from one source.
Openness & security
are not contradictory terms, but rather two sides of the same coin. Secure software does not have to hide itself. Open interfaces are the basis for unhampered access to all software properties.
SerNet uses open source software wherever possible, but also deploys proprietary software from other producers where necessary.
is made possible by seizing opportunities. In 2000, one of theses opportunities was the formation of emlix GmbH from a SerNet automation project; in 2001 this was followed by the spin-off of vokativ GmbH in the areas of media technology and events organisation. As a result of a partnership agreement with Deutsche Telekom AG, SerNet Communication GmbH was founded in 2003, followed by the launch of the Berlin subsidiary in 2005. Mid-2008 winwerk GmbH was founded. This is a service provider for MS Exchange, Active Directory and Windows infrastructures.
