Egress Software Technologies has announced a technology partnership with MXSweep to incorporate email encryption into its Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) portfolio.

According to the companies, providing a range of on-demand security services that includes email security, content control and compliance, disaster recovery, archiving and web and mobile security, MXSweep is now able to offer the Switch technology that offers protection of outbound data, regardless of file size or transport mechanism, and allows users to instantly ‘pull information back' should there be evidence that data has been lost or mishandled.

Ed Grant, CEO for MXSweep, said: “Customer requirements are constantly evolving to meet the demands of modern day business. To satisfy these demands we remain committed to forming new partnerships that expand our capacity to offer integrated best practice internet security and compliance services. Now that we are in a position to offer email encryption, MXSweep remains well placed to help clients comply with privacy legislation and reduce unnecessary data loss.”

Tony Pepper, CEO at Egress Software Technologies, said: “We are excited to have established a strategic partnership with MXSweep and are confident that our collaboration will be well received alongside the additional security services on offer. By working together, we can help customers prevent third parties from mishandling confidential data and preserve business reputations.

“Our rapidly growing customer base pays tribute to the innovation behind our patent protected software. Operating in a market defined by compliance yet driven by convenience, Switch continues to prove that security can be embedded into day-to-day business communication without the need to install costly infrastructure.”
