Tony Pepper, CEO, Egress Software Technologies comments, “Our ‘Data on the Move’ events represent key opportunities for us to get feedback from organisations on the types of information security challenges they are facing. As a leading provider of email & file encryption services to both the Public and Private Sectors it is crucial that we align our solutions to meet the needs of the market.”
“Over the last 12 months we have seen significant uptake of Egress Switch as organisations recognise the key role it can play in their data and information security strategies, making it safer, easier and more cost effective to share information electronically. I am therefore delighted with the success of this year’s events and feel that they provided the open and educational environment we were hoping for, where organisations could not only discuss their challenges, but also learn from one another. As a result we are already planning our next set of events in early 2013.”
