Egress Software Technologies announced as finalists for the Digital Entrepreneur Awards
London – September 2013 – In recognition of achievements in improving efficiency and enhancing information security for customers, Egress Software Technologies has been named as finalists for Software Innovation of the Year at the 2013 Digital Entrepreneur Awards, sponsored by UKFast.
Celebrating innovative advancements, the Digital Entrepreneur Awards recognise the technological excellence that helps companies and individuals to become increasingly agile and responsive to the evolving digital landscape. As the market-leading provider of cloud-based email and file encryption solutions that enable large and small businesses, as well as single users, to secure the information they share, remain compliant with the Data Protection Act, reduce costs and increase efficiency, Egress has been shortlisted for Software Innovation of the Year. This category rewards the talent, dedication and knowledge behind cutting-edge digital systems that can show tangible business gains.
Egress has developed a unique community-based licensing model known as the Egress Trust Network. Via this global network, organisations and individuals can access the Egress suite of solutions, including Egress Switch, to share information securely and with confidence. Enabling recipients to reply securely to paying subscribers free of charge, the Trust Network has removed barriers to data encryption, ensuring that all confidential information can be shared, regardless of sector or organisational size. In turn, this has led to enhanced efficiency and considerable cost savings, with organisations able to utilise electronic communication effectively and securely.
Commenting on the announcement, Egress CEO Tony Pepper stated: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the 2013 Digital Entrepreneur Awards. While data sharing is central to business success, many organisations and individuals continue to rely on unsecure or inefficient methods, such as fax, registered post and plain text email. At Egress, however, we are committed to enabling our customers to not only communicate securely, but also reduce cost overheads and enhance efficiency. The rapid growth of the Trust Network over the last 12 months demonstrates the success of this approach and the steps we are taking to help users across all business sectors.”
The awards ceremony will take place on 10th October at the Hilton, Manchester.
