Egress provides hosted and on-premises encryption services, designed to secure all forms of electronic information and delivered to customers in the public and private sectors using a single platform: Egress Switch. The award-winning Switch portfolio of encryption services includes email, file transfer, web form, and the latest online collaboration offering, Egress Switch Secure Workspace.
