London – July 2014 – In recognition for delivering a unique encryption services platform, Egress Software Technologies has been shortlisted for ‘Software Innovation of the Year’ at the 2014 Digital Entrepreneur Awards, sponsored by UKFast.
Celebrating developments in the rapidly growing IT services industry, the Digital Entrepreneur Awards recognise the technologies that help companies and individuals become increasingly more agile and responsive. In particular, the category of ‘Software Innovation of the Year’ rewards the talent, dedication and knowledge behind the architects of digital systems. Winner of ‘Cloud Provider of the Year’ at the 2013 UK IT Industry Awards, Egress Software Technologies is the leading provider of Cloud-hosted and on-premise encryption services designed to secure all forms of electronic information and delivered to customers in both the Public and Private Sectors via a single platform: Egress Switch.
Commenting on the announcement, Egress CEO Tony Pepper states: “We are delighted to have been named as a finalist for the 2014 Digital Entrepreneur Awards. In the wake of data snooping allegations levelled at international governments, as well as the ever-growing media attention given to data losses and breaches, both organisations and individuals are increasingly looking to protect the sensitive information they share electronically. However, recognising the need to solve this problem and delivering an appropriate solution quickly, without introducing unnecessary management or cost, is a challenge faced by all businesses.
“As the first, and currently only, provider of a CESG CPA Foundation Grade certified email encryption product, Egress is committed to offering the highest level of information assurance, while at the same time, preserving our customers’ ability to control cost and remain agile by using our hosted managed service. Today’s announcement comes as further endorsement of the way in which we’ve developed our encryption platform, making data privacy accessible for users across all industry sectors.”
The awards will be held on Thursday 9th October at the Palace Hotel, Manchester.
