LINAGORA is one of the leading european Open Source Software Company.  We believe in Free and "Libre" softwares. We also promote & support more ethical, more inclusive & more sustainable digital technologies. We call this ambition, "the 3rd Digital Way" : we built Open Platforms with a privacy by design focus, interoperability & no vendor lock-in.

We offer our customers an ability to take advantage of Free and "Libre" softwares and to benefit from an innovative business model not based on users or servers counts but that  is a flat annual fee.

Since 2000, LINAGORA has successfully provided both support and expertise on its own software provided under Open Source licences (mainly aGPL V3) and on a complete range of 400 Open Source Software, through a unique service called Open Source Software Assurance (OSSA).
