The future of encryption depends on giving customers choice, flexibility and control

Whether a government department or multinational enterprise, our customers face the same challenge: How do you share sensitive electronic information internally and externally while maintaining compliance, security and control? For organizations working in highly regulated sectors, including government, financial and insurance services, and private healthcare (where the sensitivity of data is of particular importance), this challenge sits high on the agenda.

A broad platform

Egress Software Technologies provides hosted and on-premises encryption services, designed to secure all forms of electronic information and delivered to customers in the public and private sectors using a single platform: Egress Switch. The award-winning Switch portfolio of products includes Secure Email, Secure File Transfer, Secure Web Form, and the latest online collaboration offering, Secure Workspace.

Increasingly we need to be able to offer our customers a truly flexible and scalable, cloud-based, on-premises or hybrid solution that caters to a variety of complex data-sharing and infrastructure needs.

A scalable platform

We have utilized the Azure-hosted platform to help customers encrypt data and files using a combination of services designed to seamlessly integrate with on-premises Exchange or hosted Office 365 environments, enabling end users to share confidential information securely using desktop, mobile, or web based applications. Azure lets us quickly and easily deliver our award-winning encryption services so that end users can benefit from enhanced information security when sharing sensitive data.
