DX launches eDX – a game changer in encryption services designed to help law firms share sensitive data with external third parties
London – June 2014 – DX Group today announces the launch of eDX, a secure electronic document exchange service that will enable Customers to share all forms of electronic information. Powered by Egress Switch, the award-winning and only UK Government certified email encryption product, eDX will combine service and technology excellence in order to enable law firms to encrypt and secure emails and files of any size and format.
For over 35 years, DX has been successfully providing reliable and secure physical mail delivery services to law firms, and currently delivers over 170 million physical packages every year. Recognising the ongoing changes in the communications landscape, the launch of eDX represents an extension of the services that DX delivers to include all forms of information and data, regardless of whether it is physical or electronic.
Leveraging the Egress Switch encryption platform, eDX integrates with desktop, gateway and mobile applications (including Microsoft Outlook), as well as firms’ document and practice management systems, to make sharing electronic information securely as simple as sending a conventional plaintext email. The service offers central management and comprehensive auditing and reporting functionality, so you can track information leaving your organisation and comply with the SRA and DPA. In addition, real-time revocation means you can restrict access to already sent information, so your firm remains protected at all times.
Commenting on the announcement, Petar Cvetkovic, CEO of DX, states: “The launch of eDX represents an exciting addition to the DX services portfolio. We have been leaders in our market for several decades and using our relationship with the legal industry, we’ve listened to and responded to the needs of our Customers. Using the DX platform, we feel we are uniquely placed to offer a complete secure information sharing solution, which extends to both physical and electronic data. By consolidating these services into a single offering, the potential benefits to firms will be huge. To demonstrate our commitment to this new service, we are rewarding existing Customers by offering them a free entitlement based on their DX Exchange subscription.”
Tony Pepper, CEO of Egress Software Technologies, comments: “Today’s launch of eDX represents a very exciting yet natural extension of the DX’s offering, which already embraces great service, security and Customer choice. We have built Egress Switch’s reputation for excellence on similar values, in addition to our commitment to technological investment in order to develop the market’s leading encryption services platform. As the UK’s only Government CPA certified email encryption product, we feel this approach has been fully justified. Working in close partnership with DX, we believe today’s announcement brings to market a unique and comprehensive secure information sharing platform that combines excellence in both service delivery and technology.”
Cvetkovic concludes: “We see eDX as an example of a trusted service, delivering trusted technology in order to provide genuine Customer benefits. Working closely with the team at Egress and leveraging their market-leading encryption technology, we feel we have built a service model that will not only offer this to all DX Customers but also the wider market.”
