Herndon, VA – November 1, 2011 – Apptix (OSE:APP), the premier provider of hosted business communication, collaboration, and IT solutions, today announced the launch of the Apptix Policy Based Encryption Gateway. An add-on to Apptix’s hosted Exchange email solution, the gateway helps businesses protect themselves from the financial loss, damaged reputation, and regulatory action associated with unsecured communications.
Apptix Policy Based Encryption Gateway enables organizations to establish and automatically enforce customized corporate security policies. Following these corporate policies, the Gateway scans all outbound email messages, subject lines, and attachments for confidential content and automatically encrypts and sends the emails. The Policy Based Encryption Gateway allows all email, whether from a desktop via Outlook®, through a web browser with Outlook Web App (OWA), or a mobile device, to be encrypted to the recipient – keeping employees connected securely, anywhere.
“The Encryption Gateway is a corporate-class tool for protecting intellectual property and staying compliant with privacy and security regulations,” said Mike Lamb, Apptix Product Development. “Businesses are able to customize their own rules for communications and then focus on other projects while the gateway enforces those rules and automatically secures their sensitive data.”
The Encryption Gateway is just the latest addition to Apptix’s comprehensive portfolio of Compliance and Security solutions tailored to fit the most stringent communication and collaboration regulatory requirements.
