Hawsons Chartered Accountants has selected the Egress Switch to protect and control information shared between the firm and its clients.

The technology offers secure file transfer and allows organisations to protect and classify confidential information sent by email, CD/DVD and USB, or by upload to internal/cloud servers.

Hawsons frequently exchanges confidential information when providing a wide range of services such as payroll bureau, corporate taxation, personal taxation and audit and accountancy.

Director of IT services at Hawsons Charles Kavazy, said: “Our practice distributes large amounts of confidential information on a daily basis, often using a variety of exchange mechanisms such as email, CD/DVD, or files uploaded to the web.

“Egress Switch offers us a flexible solution that caters for each of these transport mechanisms, without introducing complex processes or the need to install any expensive infrastructure.”
