Secured eMail Awarded Checkmark Certification from West Coast Labs

Company’s innovative ePrivacy Suite recognized for ease of use, cost effectiveness and proven encryption

January 24, 2007 – Secured eMail, a leader in content encryption, announced today that its flagship product, ePrivacy Suite, has achieved West Coast Labs Checkmark certification for Email Security.

The West Coast Labs Checkmark System is a quality testing and certification service with established, independent standards for product effectiveness. The company’s global service benefits technology developers as well as information security buyers and decision makers. Checkmark standards are continuously being refined to ensure they are an accurate reflection of real-world situations and changing technology advances. Products registered in the Checkmark System are tested at regular intervals against published test criteria

West Coast Lab analysis of Secured eMail’s ePrivacy Suite found it to be “a powerful, tried and tested solution that combines ease of use and cost effectives with proven encryption, to deliver a fresh approach to email security. With built-in centralized policy management, organizations can be confident that their email security needs will be met or exceeded.”

Secured eMail products are based on a concept new to the encryption world: the Simple Encryption Platform. SEP provides highest levels of security, along with ease of use, making the act of securing data while at rest, or in transit, a very simple process. The Simple Encryption Platform has created an approach that offers operability, scalability and simple management of assets. The platform provides a framework for shared user management, policy and automated control across multiple encryption applications such as email and file/folder encryption.

Companies can deploy the SEP platform that allows them to integrate new encryption applications quickly and easily, profiting from the benefits of a unified management console and resulting in high ROI over time. A platform strategy allows additional Secured eMail products to leverage this common platform allowing deployment to be more cost-effective, thereby reducing operational costs and freeing IT resources to focus on additional projects

“We are extremely pleased that yet another independent testing lab has recognized the combination of power, performance, and usability of the Secured ePrivacy Suite” said Peter Davin, CEO of Secured eMail. “We are committed to providing our customers with the most effective and secure email security solution possible. This certification is proof that we deliver what we say.”

Secured eMail will be exhibiting at booth # 1025 at the RSA Conference in San Francisco from February 5 through 8.
