Email and document encryption helps businesses prevent against data loss
TORONTO, June 17 /CNW/ -- Echoworx announced today that Verizon Online
will provide Secure DOX, which encrypts documents, to its small- and
medium-size business customers. Verizon Online plans to offer its small- and
medium-sized business customers a bundled service of email and document
encryption later this year.
Small businesses are often unable to rely on an internal IT department,
but want access to tools that will allow them to safeguard important data,
such as intellectual property, customer records, contracts, human resource
files, and highly sensitive negotiations. Businesses that subscribe to these
encryption services will have access to the best tools in data security
services that are all fully outsourced and managed with no impact to a
"Small- and medium-size businesses are concerned about protecting their
data assets and are limited to choices since most do not have the IT staff of
large enterprises to manage the complexity involved with encryption services,"
said Michael Ginsberg, President and CEO of Echoworx. "These important desktop
encryption solutions -- offer SMB companies a series of important services to
help ensure safeguarding data at every level."
Verizon Online currently offers its small- and medium-size business
customers Verizon Secure Mail, email encryption software, powered by Echoworx.
Echoworx encryption services are based on industry trusted and enterprise
tested encryption standards (PKI, X.509, S/MIME). Echoworx products are suited
for businesses that have to adhere to government compliance, and businesses
that have remote employees where data should be secured at all times in case
of loss or theft.
The email encryption service verifies and authenticates that the message
has not been altered, allows it to be opened only by the intended recipient,
and allows users to lock e-mail that they receive so it cannot be viewed by
others. The document encryption service allows the user to encrypt files and
folders and set permissions on who can access, read, and write to the file or
folder enforcing security policies. All of Echoworx encryption products are
simple to use. A user registers for the services, and downloads a single
plug-in for Secure Mail to encrypt email and Secure DOX to encrypt their data.
Both email and document encryption services help small- and medium-size
businesses better protect the privacy of their data, whether it's being sent
by email, on a device such as a USB key, or stored on the network.
