The command line-based server version was released in 2003 and supports Windows Server 2000 and 2003, Solaris, HP-UX, IBM-AIX and Linux 2.4 and higher. The GUI-based Windows client version was introduced in 2004 and provides email users with a stand-alone encryption and decryption capability. See PK software and RSA.
