Egress Software Technologies, an innovator in secure collaboration, announced today a partnership with Infosec Technologies (IST). Focused solely on information security, Infosec Technologies pride themselves on maintaining the highest levels of customer satisfaction through an extensive range of value added services.
Drawing upon a carefully selected product portfolio, Infosec Technologies offer best of breed Web & Mail Security, Data Security, Data Governance, SSL VPN, Wireless Security, and Two-factor Authentication. “Our customers are concerned by the increasing amount of confidential data that is shared both physically and electronically”, said Steven Malone, Director for Infosec Technologies. “Having implemented technology to safeguard inbound threats, protecting information sent by email, USB, CD/DVD, or even uploaded to the Cloud, remains a key consideration to avoid expensive fines by the ICO”.
Independent market research indicates that data breaches attributed to third parties has now grown to 36% and are 20% more costly to recover. “Here at Infosec Technologies, we are always looking for new ways to help our customers mitigate risk.” Malone continues, “This alarming trend of third party data loss demands a new approach to sharing information. Only by enforcing recipient accountability and empowering users to remain in control over shared information can our clients achieve the level of assurance they need when exchanging sensitive data.”
Delivered as a hosted service to guarantee fast deployment and low cost of ownership, Egress Switch enables users to encrypt information in a single click, protecting data wherever it resides. “We are pleased to have established a partnership with Infosec Technologies and are confident that they will contribute towards our continued success,” said Tony Pepper CEO for Egress Software Technologies. “By working together we can help organisations embed security into the fabric of business communication in order to comply with the Data Protection Act and avoid fines of up to £500,000.”
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 track recipient activity and modify policies in real-time through a service in the Cloud. This patented technology allows users to instantly ‘pull information back’ should there be evidence that the data has been lost or mishandled.
Egress Switch also offers role based user management, integrated data classification, customisable disclaimers, and configurable security rules, enabling Administrators to enforce policy centrally without the need to install any costly infrastructure. This next generation level of control and ease-of-use features not only mitigates the risk of unintentional data loss, but also enforces recipient responsibility when handling confidential information.
