FRISCO, Texas, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Encryptics, a provider of patented data privacy and protection services for businesses and government, announced today that receivables management company Gila LLC will use the Encryptics Data Protection API™ (Application Programming Interface) to protect outsourced data from government agencies.

Specifically, Gila will use Encryptics' API to integrate a heightened level of data protection into all of its government-client solutions, including the Driver Responsibility Program that Gila operates on behalf of the Texas Department of Public Safety as well as the Texas State Comptroller of Public Accounts delinquent collections. "The API will enable us to build a better solution that protects citizens' data, while automating our business processes in order to maintain the highest level of efficiency for our customers," said Bruce Cummings, CEO at Gila.

The Driver Responsibility Program authorizes the Texas Department of Public Safety to assess surcharges to an individual based on certain traffic offenses. More information on this program can be found at

"We are pleased that Gila has chosen our API to streamline their business processes and secure their data," said Encryptics' CEO, Mitch Scherr. "We look forward to a continued successful partnership."

As one of Austin's top 50 fastest growing private companies, Gila serves more than 650 clients across 40 states in collections and revenue-cycle management. Gila's use of the Encryptics API, in addition to the adoption of Encryptics' flagship email product, will allow the company to reduce liability and increase secure e-communication. Utilizing the Encryptics .SAFE format, Gila can protect all sensitive customer information sent from and stored within its network.
