About Egress Software Technologies
Egress Switch offers complete protection of outbound data regardless of file size or transport mechanism. Using AES 256-bit encryption, Switch secures confidential information sent by email, copied to USB removable media, burnt to CD/DVD, or uploaded to FTP/Cloud Servers. Access privileges can then be modified or revoked in real-time, even after the information is sent or shared. This allows users to instantly 'pull information back' should there be evidence that data has been lost or mishandled.
Egress Switch also offers data classification and customisable disclaimer notifications, making email encryption, media encryption, and large file transfer more secure and easier than ever. This next generation level of control, combined with integrated workflow features, mitigates the risk of unintentional data loss and enforces recipient responsibility when handling confidential information.
