Over 40 U.S. states now have data breach laws. The Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires that policies and procedures must be established and implemented to protect the use and disclosure of individuals’ health information. The SEC’s Regulation S-P mandates safeguarding clients’ personal information and requiring publicly-traded companies to only transmit confidential electronic data using secure channels. The cost incurred by data breaches is at an all time high; the punitive financial consequences, potential public collateral damage and negative impact on corporate reputation now far outweigh the cost of deploying security technologies.
Competing email encryption solutions require the use of technology that is extremely complicated to deploy and use. Since email encryption only addresses a small component of the overall problem, many organizations have also been forced to create Intranets or deploy FTP servers forcing users to learn and adopt new and cumbersome business workflows. The process of using email encryption such as PKI or TLS and multiple systems to accomplish messaging security, compliance and productivity has created a very significant global market opportunity for Email2.
Security can no longer be ignored; it is now a “must have” with severe consequences for non-compliance. However, no matter how good the security technologies are, they are only good when they are actually used. Over 75% of Email2 clients replaced traditional email encryption technologies since the complexity of securing content delivery with these technologies would get in the way of user productivity. Email2’s ‘frictionless’ security and compelling productivity enhancements has shown unprecedented user adoption rates and users that do not want to go back to “basic email” which has hardly evolved over the past three decades.
Email2′s mandate is to build key partnerships by combining your current security offering with our powerful Secure Messaging Platform. Email2′s flexibility in meeting client requirements and seamless API integration with existing infrastructure makes our platform a perfect value added service to small regional resellers, industry focused service providers, Hosted Exchange resellers, well established national technology integrators, as well as security vendors offering a complementary security or productivity suite. Our partner program welcomes your expertise to better service our clients.
