TORONTO, April 25, 2017 /CNW/ - Email encryption provider Echoworx has responded to Mexico's data security demands by setting up its advanced encryption platform OneWorld within a local data center near Mexico City. The expansion has been fuelled by customers' increasing demand for in-country data security and will allow businesses operating in Mexico the option to store and protect their sensitive information locally.
Commenting on the expansion, Jacob Ginsberg, Senior Director of Products at Echoworx said: "Mexico is a large, underserved market. Our timing in engaging Mexico could not be better. As opposed to using antiquated solutions to simply satisfy compliance laws, they will immediately be able to take advantage of our advanced products – effectively leapfrogging a generation of encryption technology – and reap the benefits of being able to communicate with their customers and partners quickly and securely." He says as large institutions, especially those in the financial sector, look for new and better ways to engage their customers and increase market share, they will quickly see how offering secured services like e-statements will be a sharp differentiator."
The expansion to a local Mexican data center is also key to Echoworx's partner growth strategy. Grupo Empresarial EISEI has signed as Echoworx's first partner in providing its encryption solutions to the Mexican market. EISEI is a software development and services company that serves financial, commercial, entertainment and construction organizations.
"Data security is an increasing concern for many companies in Mexico and many financial organizations don't have adequate encryption solutions," says Luis Hernandez, director of new business for EISEI. He says the country has issues with those involved in organized crime easily stealing private data sent in emails and holding it hostage in return for a ransom payment. "Echoworx encryption solutions will help to safeguard against this type of theft and other cyber attacks that favor targeting email," Hernandez says.
"The key for us was, Echoworx's encryption solutions are very easy to implement and simple for our clients to use," says Hernandez. "Their solution complements and adds a lot of value to the services we offer. We are very excited about our partnership with Echoworx."
Grupo Empresarial EISEI is the first partner to offer in-country data security through Echoworx's OneWorld encryption platform. Echoworx has plans to add additional partners as demand increases.
