London – September 2013 – In recognition for delivering a unique and innovative cloud-based email and file encryption solution, Egress Software Technologies announces today that they have been selected as a finalist at the UK IT Industry Awards in the category of ‘Cloud Provider of the Year’ 2013.
David Clarke MBE, Chief Executive Officer, BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, comments: “As the Chartered Institute for IT I’d like to congratulate this year’s finalists. They showcase not only the innovation and the professionalism of those working in IT, but also demonstrate the importance of IT in delivering business and social benefit.”
Stuart Sumner, Editor of Computing adds: “Computing would like to congratulate the finalists. It’s great to see such a wide range of industries represented, highlighting the fact that IT is truly embedded throughout business, and our society.”
Tony Pepper, CEO, Egress Software Technologies states: “At Egress we recognised that organisations and individuals struggle to secure and control the confidential information they need to share with third parties outside their secure networks. Unlike other vendors on the market, we have simplified our solution to this problem by building a single cloud-based platform to enable users to securely share all forms of electronic information. We call this platform the Egress Trust Network.”
“We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this award by The Chartered Institute for IT and Computing,” continues Pepper. “Having won the 'Security Innovation Award' in 2011, today's announcement not only reflects the growth and success of the Egress Trust Network over the last 12 months but also endorses the approach we are taking to help organisations across all business sectors.”
The award ceremony will take place on Wednesday 13th November at the Battersea Park Events Arena, London.
