US State of Delaware selects Egress Switch to replace Cisco IronPort email encryption
Boston (U.S.) – April 2015 – Egress Software Technologies Inc., a leader in encryption services, today announces that US State of Delaware is replacing its email and file encryption solution, Cisco IronPort Encryption Appliance (IEA), with Egress Switch. Following Cisco's announcement to end-of-life IEA, forward-thinking State of Delaware identified the need for a replacement solution that could cater for a mixed environment of on-premise Microsoft Exchange for state side users and Office 365 for K12 educational users.
The Switch solution helps Delaware meet this need by delivering a combination of encryption services designed to complement their hybrid environment. Once deployed, Switch will enable State and K12 Education users to leverage single sign-on through Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) when accessing and sharing confidential information via email, using desktop, mobile, or web based applications, without changing end user behavior.
