About ZONER software
ZONER software, s.r.o., is a major software developer and distributor. It is simultaneously the Czech Republic’s foremost provider of Web services, offering a variety of solutions for webhosting, e-commerce, and domain name registration, with the last of these serving a large number of international customers. Meanwhile, Zoner also runs a technical publishing house. Zoner’s 100 employees work not only in its headquarters in Brno, Czech Republic, but also in branches in the United States, Great Britain, Austria, Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary. The company has four divisions (graphics software, Internet and e-commerce, publishing, and anti-virus), each with its own director. The company overall is run by a single CEO.
The roots of this division reach back to 2003, when we formed a small team of virus professionals, which fell under the Internet division. The goal was to investigate and analyze Internet-based viruses, and stop their dissemination. In 2007, this team was reworked into a separate division, which has now produced our first security solution, Zoner AntiVirus, for the protection of Linux-based e-mail servers. Zoner AntiVirus is a modern anti-virus system, with a newly designed, high-performance core. It is suitable both for large companies and for the workstations of home and business users.
The Software Division
The Software division is the company’s oldest. It was founded in 1993, with the aim of developing and selling end-user software. We focus mainly on the field of digital photography, but also produce vector graphics editors, barcode software, multimedia authoring tools, and vector clip art. Our flagship product, Zoner Photo Studio, is the market leader in the Czech Republic, and strong abroad as well. Zoner Draw also holds a strong share both domestically (under the name Zoner Callisto) and internationally.
The Internet Services DivisionThe Internet Services division was founded in 1996. Its best-known operation is Czechia.com: the oldest web hosting service in the Czech Republic, and also one of the largest. Its current portfolio also includes server hosting and server housing (all in its own data center), web design, and certificate services. Zoner’s inShop system, for building and operating web shops, became the most-used non-free solution for web commerce in the Czech Republic just three months after it was put on the market in 1998, and it has held that position to this day. In September of 1999, we first published Interval.cz, which has since become the most-visited Czech web magazine devoted to web design, web graphics, and e-commerce.
The Publishing Division—Zoner Press
In February 2004, the company decided to expand its offerings on the IT market and provide more comprehensive services to its customers by founding a publishing house, Zoner Press. This house’s computer-related publications primarily focus on the Web and graphics. So far, it has published in Czech only, though release of the house’s first English publication is planned soon. Publications from our flagship publishing line, the Graphics and Digital Photography Encyclopedia, are welcomed by everyone who takes an interest in graphics programs and in photography, especially digital photography. It’s not only professional graphic artists will find something useful here; the Encyclopedia serves amateur photographers as well. The Web Designer’s Encyclopedia, meanwhile, is for everyone who takes an interest in the webpage design. Under this logo, every designer and web developer can find both practical guides and comprehensive publichations that will be an aid to them during their daily work.
