Egress Switch Highly Commended in SC Awards 2011

Egress Switch receives commendation award for "Best SME Security Solution" and "Best Security Solution, Financial Services."

London, United Kingdom, May 05, 2011 --( Egress Software Technologies, an innovator in collaborative data security, receives two commendation awards in recognition for delivering on-demand secure email and file transfer services to SME and Financial Services clients.

Following an award for innovation in 2010, Egress solutions are now adopted across UK Government, Financial Services, and SME clients, enabling individuals and organisations to promote collaborative data security and significantly improve day-to-day business communication.

“We are pleased to see a growing number of businesses standardise on Egress products and services and are excited about the future that lies ahead,” said Tony Pepper, CEO for Egress Software Technologies. “With the influx of public and private sector customers now using Egress Switch and Switch Fusion to share confidential data, it’s only a matter of time before we see the end of ineffective and legacy ‘point’ solutions that still exist in the marketplace today.”

Unlike conventional software which protects data in transit, Egress Switch offers control and real-time auditing throughout the lifecycle of sensitive data, preventing unnecessary loss at the hands of third parties. Pepper continues, “Whether infrastructure is installed locally or hosted in the Cloud, Egress remains committed to supporting the needs of individuals or Enterprise users, and determined to deliver versatile security solutions that can align themselves with evolving business needs.”

Operating in a market defined by compliance yet driven by convenience, Switch continues to prove that security can be embedded into day-to-day business communication without the need to install costly infrastructure. Using AES 256-bit encryption, Switch secures confidential information sent by email, copied to USB removable media, burnt to CD/DVD, or uploaded to FTP/Cloud Servers. Access privileges can then be modified or revoked in real-time, even after the information is sent or shared. This allows users to instantly "pull information back" should there be evidence that data has been lost or mishandled.

Egress Switch also offers data classification and customisable disclaimer notifications, making email encryption, media encryption, and large file transfer more secure and easier than ever. This next generation level of control, combined with integrated workflow features, mitigates the risk of unintentional data loss and enforces recipient responsibility when handling confidential information.
