Egress Switch Shortlisted as SC Awards 2011 finalist

On-demand secure email and file transfer service voted SC Awards finalists for Best SME Security Solution & Best Security Solution, Financial Services

Egress Software Technologies, an innovator in collaborative data security, announced today that Egress Switch has been voted SC Awards finalist for Best SME Security Solution and Best Security Solution, Financial Services.

Recognised for delivering flexible and easy-to-use security services, Egress Switch is rapidly becoming the product of choice across SME’s and Financial Services for sharing confidential data securely. Designed to cater for individuals, small businesses, and Enterprise organisations, Switch offers a range of tailored services using a combination of public and private cloud infrastructure.

“We offer these services to a wide range of customers because data security issues are not solely limited to Enterprise organisations,” said Tony Pepper, CEO for Egress Software Technologies. “Every business professional is obligated by law to take appropriate steps to ensure the protection of personal data that is distributed electronically.”

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, supporting the needs of individuals or Enterprise use, Egress remains committed to offering customers choice and is determined to deliver versatile 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.
