TORONTO, March 11 /CNW/ - Ceryx Inc, the leading provider of enterprise grade messaging, collaboration and unified communications services has partnered with Echoworx to provide policy based email encryption. With this partnership, Ceryx continues to build a platform that meets the sophisticated security requirements of large organizations.
"Ceryx is pleased to partner with Echoworx and to use their solution to further develop the advanced security capabilities of our messaging platform," says Gus Harsfai, CEO of Ceryx. "Based on customer demand for this leading encryption software, we chose to integrate the Echoworx policy-based encryption gateway and make it available for customers on both our hosted and dedicated environments."
While transparent to end-users, this powerful security solution allows organizations to integrate with existing security policies and processes. Security and compliance officers looking to ensure data privacy can now be confident that customer data leaks, trade secrets or other sensitive corporate data is protected through organization wide policies and rules. For example, administrators can define a rule that automatically encrypts email containing specific information, such as a credit card number or a keyword relating to confidential research.
The partnership complements Ceryx's existing security offerings, which include two-factor authentication (RSA Secure ID), advanced policy-based BlackBerry security, strong password management tools and the ability to restrict access to known and trusted networks on a hosted platform.
"We see a great opportunity for Ceryx to deploy our technology and deliver a compelling alternative for those currently running their messaging on-premise," explains Michael Ginsberg, President and CEO of Echoworx. "Our encryption technology is based on industry trusted Public Key Infrastructure, and as a fully managed subscription-based service it allows clients to easily deploy on-demand encryption with no upfront investment, no disruption to workflow, and at a low monthly, per user fee."
Ceryx's partnership with Echoworx adds the option for policy based encryption for customers with enterprise requirements, creating additional value for those who want to benefit from the cost efficiencies of an outsourced messaging solution without compromising their requirements.
