Echoworx Announces Gateway Encryption for Enterprises That Are Enforcing Data Loss Prevention



    TORONTO, Nov. 29 /CNW/ -- Echoworx Corporation (www.echoworx.com) a
leading provider of security software products for digital communications,
today announced the global availability of Echoworx Secure Mail Gateway. This
product compliments the Echoworx encryption portfolio by extending the suite
to include a gateway solution that can be easily deployed with policy
management and anti-spam and anti-virus content filtering solutions, giving
enterprises a transparent method to secure messaging.
    A data loss or leak can have a tremendous impact on an organization's
P&L, competitive standing and brand damage to their reputation. A data loss
prevention strategy is just one issue driving companies to enforce encryption
through content scanning solutions, such as policy management, to safeguard
email communications that include sensitive data such as customer and employee
and intellectual property.
    "This product is a natural evolution of our encryption suite, which can
be deployed on-site or within a hosted data center," said Michael Ginsberg,
President and CEO of Echoworx. "Echoworx Secure Mail Gateway interoperates
with leading content management solutions to give enterprises the ability to
automatically apply encryption to email, based on pre-defined corporate
privacy policies. The encryption of the email is transparent to the end user,
allowing organizations to mitigate the risks associated with regulatory
violations and data loss. This solution can be implemented with zero impact to
business operations."
    
    About Echoworx Secure Mail Gateway
    
    Echoworx Secure Mail Gateway is a PKI (Public Key Infrastructure)
encryption product that interoperates with popular policy management and anti-
spam and anti-virus content filtering products. The product enables
organizations to automate email encryption by leveraging their policy
management or content filtering applications. Echoworx Secure Mail Gateway
helps organizations fulfill regulatory compliance such as HIPAA, SOX, and GLB
by enforcing email encryption with no impact to end user workflow.
    
    How does Echoworx Secure Mail Gateway work?
    
    Echoworx Secure Mail Gateway can reside on-site or within a hosted data
center. When an email is composed, once the user presses the send button, the
message is scanned for viruses and the content is also analyzed to detect
whether confidential information is being sent, based on pre-defined corporate
policies. If policy management detects sensitive information is enclosed, the
message is routed to the Echoworx Secure Mail Gateway where the message is
automatically encrypted and sent to the recipient. The encryption is
completely transparent to the end user. The complexity of digital certificates
and encryption keys are all managed in the background with zero impact to
workflow.
    If the recipient is an Echoworx Secure Mail user, they will receive the
message directly in their mail box as an encrypted message. If the recipient
is not an Echoworx Secure Mail user they will be directed to a secure web-
based portal where they can register themselves to automatically receive
encrypted messages. They simply set up a password when they receive their
first encrypted message, which enables them to easily receive messages, reply
securely and add attachments to these messages.
