Egress Software Technologies announced as a finalist for the UK Cloud Awards 2014
London – February 2014 – In recognition of progress made in delivering an innovative and unique Cloud-based email and file encryption solution, Egress Software Technologies is pleased to report that they have been shortlisted as a finalist for ‘Security project of the year’ at the 2014 UK Cloud Awards.
In their debut year, these awards seek to recognise the fresh and innovative talent that has developed the UK Cloud industry in the last twelve months. As the market-leading provider of Cloud-based email and file encryption software that enables large and small businesses, as well as single users, to securely share confidential information in line with the UK Data Protection Act, in addition to reducing costs and increasing efficiency, Egress has been shortlisted for ‘Security project of the year’. This category showcases the considerable innovation and capability that has been brought to market in the UK to further enhance the Cloud’s reputation as a secure and trusted environment.
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 2014 UK Cloud Awards. At Egress, we are dedicated to ensuring that our users are able to take advantage Cloud services to securely and effectively share sensitive information, as well as reduce cost overheads and enhance efficiency. Following a very successful year in 2013, in which we experienced rapid growth in the Trust Network and won ‘Cloud Provider of the Year’ at the UK IT Industry Awards, today’s announcement provides further industry endorsement for Egress’ innovative and unique platform.”
The awards ceremony will take place on 26th February at the City Hall, London.
