London – April 2014 – Egress Software Technologies today announces the launch of its new secure Cloud-based collaboration platform, Switch Secure Workspace, at Infosecurity Europe 2014.

Sharing information electronically is a complex issue in today’s business environment. While email remains the prevalent method for sharing information electronically, the use of file transfer products, web forms and online collaboration tools in isolation from one another has created data silos and unnecessary system complexity. In particular, the increased market adoption of these Cloud-based collaboration systems has heightened the potential risks to organisations’ data and network integrity. If the chosen systems lack sufficient levels of data security and access control, organisations are not only putting their corporate networks at risk but also the underlying data they share.

Egress Switch’s award-winning encryption platform enables organisations to protect all forms of electronic information shared both internally and externally. A new pillar of functionality, Switch Secure Workspace offers end-to-end secure collaboration by encrypting information at rest, as well as in transit. This Cloud-based service provides check-in and check-out functionality, real-time auditing, workflow management, and comprehensive access control. Using Government certified key management, Switch Secure Workspace places data security and real-time control firmly at the heart of information sharing, while at the same time guaranteeing a simple user experience for both sender and recipient.

Offering effective integration with an organisation’s existing DMS and CMS infrastructure, Switch Secure Workspace allows users to effectively collaborate on documents and share information with a wide variety of trusted external third parties, while also maintaining comprehensive data protection.

Egress CEO Tony Pepper comments: “By working closely with our existing customers, we have recognised the need to provide secure online collaboration as part of a wider electronic communication strategy. Leveraging our core expertise in delivering email and file encryption services, coupled with our Government certified key management, we have now extended the Switch platform to include secure Cloud-based collaboration. Switch Secure Workspace’s comprehensive security and core collaboration functionality offers organisations the reassurance that they are investing in a fully integrated solution to protect all forms of shared electronic information.”

Egress will be exhibiting on stand D52 throughout Infosecurity Europe 2014, offering delegates the opportunity to see Secure Workspace demonstrations for the first time.
