About us

C. H. OSTFELD, founded in 1977 in Milan, Italy, is an Information Technology company that resells third party computer software products in Italy, Malta, Switzerland and the Vatican. Additionally the company also sells consultancy and technical support related to the software it resells. Its staff is highly qualified and has passed rigorous certification tests set down by our supplier partners.

Mobile Device Management is one of the mainstays of our offerings today.

As a result of our nearly 40 years in business, C.H. OSTFELD has acquired knowledge that allows it to find and sell the most appropriate products that will address the ever evolving needs of our clients.

Our goal is to satisfy our customers and this has favored long lasting relationships that in some cases go back more than 20 years.

Making sure that our staff is well trained and possesses up to date knowledge of products and what the evolving computer software market both develops and requires, allows us to quickly address whatever need our clients submit to us. Keeping our staffs’ Certifications current is part of that M.O.

In the mid 1990’s Claude H. Ostfeld and our staff conceived, designed and developed a ZIP based data compression product. Its name is PentaZip. Its initial acceptance was excellent and shortly after its initial release, in 1999, it won the coveted “Premio Smau Industrial Design” (32nd edition for software).

During the following years PentaZip (and its more powerful version PentaSuite) were added to constantly.

PentaWare, located in Portsmouth, NH, USA, has looked after international distribution since 1999.

In addition to strong encryption, image viewing and other functions, the Penta products offer PDF creation and editing. Cloud based data files are also managed by the Penta products.Not bad for a product that continues to improve and progress.
