AWS Dublin Region launch planned as company expands support for the growing demand of geographic jurisdictional security
RSA CONFERENCE – SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - Echoworx, makers of OneWorld, the first smart platform for message encryption, today announced at the RSA Conference 2016 a shift in the company's strategy that allows it to significantly expand support for the growing demand of geographic jurisdictional security by launching OneWorld Encryption on AWS Cloud. AWS-Dublin, specifically chosen for its jurisdictional advantage, will be the first region to go live under this new strategy. Additional jurisdictions will be added quickly and easily as demand arises.
Echoworx's OneWorld Encryption is a policy-based encryption solution that provides an easy way for companies to encrypt email communications and e-statements. Having OneWorld Encryption available in AWS allows Echoworx to provide encryption services from their platform purpose-built to provide customers with the flexibility and control to route their secure communications through one of twelve AWS geographic regions worldwide.
"By utilizing AWS, we will no longer be restricted by physical resources or IT intensive infrastructure maintenance, enabling us to be 100 percent focused how we can help our customers communicate better with the outside world in a secure fashion," said Michael Ginsberg, President and CEO of Echoworx.
OneWorld allows businesses to easily integrate a single, scalable, easy-to-use encryption solution into their existing infrastructure. With AWS, deploying OneWorld around the world will be a basic point-and-click exercise that provides customers the added benefit of knowing that their infrastructure is hyper scalable and truly private.
Compliance and privacy requirements are causing enterprises to consider geographical jurisdictional security a top priority. Pending legislation such as the Investigatory Powers Bill by the UK government and the U.S. anti-encryption legislation are driving enterprises to shop for services in geographic jurisdictions they feel can better keep their communications secure. AWS is now certified against more than 20 domestic and international compliance accreditations to accommodate virtually any workload. Providing these options for customers via AWS is a key part of Echoworx's focus. Ireland's highly favorable data privacy laws make it a natural fit for Echoworx to offer its services.
"Our customers continue to invest in broadening their range of security offerings, and we are working with them to exceed their customers' high expectations for secure communication," Ginsberg said. "Compliance and privacy requirements are driving enterprises to make jurisdictional security a top priority and they are looking to us to simply and seamlessly integrate managed encryption services into their existing environment – wherever that may be."
OneWorld on AWS - Dublin will be commercially available August 1st. For more information, visit echoworx.com
