Egress Switch Shortlisted as SC Award 2013 Finalist

Market leading email & file encryption service voted a finalist for "Information Security Product of the Year" 2013 at this year’s SC Awards.

London, United Kingdom, February 08, 2013 --( Following a record year of growth and industry wide recognition for the delivery of information security services to both the UK Public and Private sectors, Egress Software Technologies are shortlisted for ‘Information Security Product of the Year’ 2013 by SC Magazine.

Commenting on the announcement, Tony Pepper, CEO for Egress Software Technologies stated, “The last 18 months have seen Egress Switch become the email & file encryption service of choice for much of the UK Public Sector including Local Authorities, NHS Trusts, Central Government Departments and their external ‘Third Sector’ network. We are currently in the final stages of CESG CPA accreditation which once complete will make Egress Switch the only email encryption product approved by UK Government to share information up to Impact Level 3 (IL3). We are also seeing major growth amongst professional and financial services sectors as these organisations prioritise the importance of securing the sensitive information they share with third parties outside their secure networks.”

“As the recent national press interview with Camden highlighted, much of our success has been down to our unique licensing model, which we call the Egress Trust Network. This enables organisations and individuals using Egress Switch to securely share information with one another free of charge without the need to set up complex policies or manage multiple encryption keys,” continued Pepper.

In addition, Egress has been recognised as providing a genuine cloud based information security service. As John Jackson, CIO, Camden Council stated, “What is interesting with Egress is it’s delivering what I would call a true Cloud – a capability we can plug into existing infrastructures and make it work correctly. So it’s bringing cloud capability in without having to move your entire hosting environment. It really is flexible and does what it says on the tin.”

Egress Software Technologies will be one of the lead exhibitors at this year’s Infosecurity Europe event, held at Earls Court, London on the 23rd – 25th of April. The event will be a great opportunity to meet with representatives from Egress who can explain how the service is revolutionising the way sensitive information is shared between separate organisations.
