In recognition for delivering market leading innovation, Egress Software Technologies receives an SC award for its contribution towards providing new ways to share information securely. Delivered as a service to minimize cost, Egress Switch enables sensitive data to be shared easily, while offering extended auditing and real-time control wherever the data resides.
“Our patented collaboration service revolutionizes the way organisations share confidential information,” said Tony Pepper, CEO for Egress Software Technologies. “Unlike any other product on the market Switch offers unrivalled security over shared information, seamlessly integrated into user workflow.”
Alarming statistics indicate that the percentage of data breaches attributed to third parties has now grown to 36 percent, and is 20% more costly to recover. Pepper continues, “This is a modern day paradox that has invariably led to the proliferation of data loss incidents over recent years. It’s clear that organisations will only embrace security if traditional barriers associated with secure data exchange are removed. Our fresh approach to sharing data securely does precisely that.”
Egress Switch offers complete protection of outbound data regardless of file size or transport mechanism. 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. Information owners can then set or change security policies through a service in the Cloud. Security policies include real-time user and package management, even after the information is sent or shared. This allows users to instantly ‘pull information back’ should audit events suggests the data has been lost or mishandled.
Egress Switch also offers integrated data classification and customisable end user policy disclaimers. This next generation level of control and ease-of-use not only mitigates the risk of unintentional data loss, but also enforces recipient responsibility when handling confidential information.
