FRISCO, Texas, Dec. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Encryptics was awarded "Best Email Security and Integrity Solution" by Government Security News (GSN). This award recognizes Encryptics' flagship product, Encryptics for Email™, which provides patented data protection and privacy solutions for enterprise email services.
According to GSN, winners of this year's Homeland Security Awards program were selected from hundreds of nominations submitted by leading IT and physical security vendors as well as agencies at all levels of government.
"Encryptics is proud to be among other best-in-class IT security winners," said Chief Executive Officer Mitch Scherr. "With more IT security nominees this year, the GSN Awards represent a growing interest in cybersecurity solutions, and we are thrilled to join the ranks of those dedicated to protecting critical infrastructure and improving national security."
As lead judge of the 2013 IT security awards, Chuck Brooks, commented, "It is great to see that the companies that submitted entries for the GSN Awards are at the cutting-edge of cybersecurity solutions across the threat spectrum."
Brooks also noted that "in the past, much of cybersecurity has been reactive. The trend [today] is toward a more holistic approach of integrating technologies, processes, and people." Scherr added that "this holistic approach is at the core of Encryptics' methodology, which aims to help businesses and government automate data protection processes across their organizations."
The Encryptics for Email solution integrates seamlessly with any email service to provide data protection at the device level. This means that important email messages—containing intellectual property, legal documents, or personal identifiers, for example—are encrypted before ever leaving the organization's firewall. With the convenient Encryptics Add-In for Microsoft Outlook®, data protection can be easily implemented into employees' normal workflow.
Encryptics for Email also provides Policy Based Protection, which allows customers to set rules—based on their organization's security policies—that will automatically enforce encryption on outgoing email messages. Because all encryption occurs at the device level, this solution greatly reduces data loss and liability involved in email communication.
