Echoworx partners with hosted Exchange provider, Hostway Corporation
Partnership to provide email encryption solutions to Hostway customers
Chicago, Illinois, August 9, 2011 — Hostway Corporation, global leader in infrastructure-as-a-service and cloud hosting today announced they have partnered with Echoworx Corporation, the leading provider of managed encryption services for complete enterprise email and data protection.
Following the integration of Echoworx policy-based encryption, Hostway will begin offering encryption solutions as part of its Microsoft Exchange 2010 offering to their customers.
"By adding policy-based email encryption to their services, Hostway will help their customers enforce compliance at the gateway," says Michael Ginsberg, President and CEO of Echoworx. "An added bonus is that all encrypted messages will be digitally signed and validated to meet compliance requirements.
"We know that email encryption will make our Microsoft Exchange offering even more valuable to customers and look forward to a successful partnership with Echoworx," said Andrew Kemp, Vice President of product management of Hostway. "Email encryption gives businesses another reason to transition to our hosted Microsoft Exchange offering. It will help organisations meet their compliance and regulatory challenges without the need for upfront investment in additional hardware and software, enabling cost savings."
Encrypted Mail Gateway from Echoworx is a policy-based managed encryption solution that provides organizations with an easy way to enforce email encryption without disrupting the day-to-day workflow of their employees. It puts the control back in the hands of the IT department by enabling them to manage the organization's entire email infrastructure, and allows users to read their encrypted email from their desktop or mobile device. With the Echoworx-Hostway offering, all outbound emails will be monitored to ensure confidential information is encrypted before it is distributed over the Internet.
Echoworx Encrypted Mail Gateway provides the ability to associate rules with the content of outbound email to help protect enterprises from liabilities associated with privacy and data security regulations such as The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), and PCI Compliance.
