Egress Switch features in Evening Standard article on the need for secure yet simple data encryption
London - June 2013 - Following recent revelations that the US is seizing phone and web data using a program named Prism, the issue of secure communication has once again been launched into the headlines. Responding to an increase in public concern about confidentiality, the Evening Standard today reported on the benefits of using Egress Switch for secure communication.
Comparing Switch with other products designed to protect confidentiality, such as OneShar, Redact and Symantec’s PGP system, the Evening Standard’s Joshi Herrmann explores why the majority of London councils have adopted Egress’ market-leading solution. Hermann concludes that Switch offers an easy-to-use yet comprehensive platform for data security – including the ability to restrict or revoke access, as well as limit recipients’ ability to forward or print documents.
As more and more data goes digital, there is a greater need to comply with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Egress offers services aimed at GLBA compliance ensuring your data (particularly that in the financial services) remains protected and secure. In addition to this, healthcare organisations will also need to ensure they’re complying with the HIPPA which ensures sensitive data remains protected and prevention of healthcare data breaches. Our Egress software solutions, such as email and file encryption, secure online collaboration and secure managed file transfer can mitigate these data risks.
