Egress | 23rd Apr 2021

London, UK – 16th April 2021 - Egress has been shortlisted in the Best Use of Machine Learning / AI category at the 2021 SC Awards Europe. The leading provider of human layer security, Egress has been recognised for its innovative Intelligent Email Security platform that utilises contextual machine learning to prevent human-activated data breaches.

Recognising that data is put at risk when people make mistakes, break the rules and are targeted by phishing attacks, Egress Intelligent Email Security uses machine learning to offer a more comprehensive solution to insider risk than point solutions can achieve, ensuring emails are always sent to the correct recipient with the right level of encryption, and that intentionally risky behaviour is mitigated before a breach can occur. Egress also recently announced an update to its reporting functionality, Egress Analytics, to help customer better understand and manage their insider risk.

Tony Pepper, CEO of Egress, comments: “I’m delighted that we have been shortlisted at this year’s SC Awards Europe, recognizing our continued innovation into our Intelligent Email Security platform and its successful adoption by organizations globally. The risk of an insider data breach is higher than ever, with employees sharing more digital content while working remotely, especially via email, at a time when they’re under increased pressure, and feeling more tired and stressed. It’s fantastic that our contextual machine learning technology has been recognized for the value it brings by intelligently mitigating accidental and intentional data loss, without disrupting productivity.”

The SC Awards Europe recognise and reward the people, products and services that exemplify the very best solutions for client-customers and the security sector as a whole.
