After reviewing eight pieces of software that would enable them to securely share sensitive data, Camden Council decided that Egress Software Technologies’ ‘Switch’ provided the best solution. Switch plugs directly into existing email solutions, which makes it convenient and easy for companies to adopt.
Switch is a policy-based gateway and desktop email encryption service that features a number of benefits such as ‘follow the data’, an audit feature, which enables companies to discover where data gets lost should any accidental losses occur. Another benefit for Camden Council was the fact that Switch does not require clients to adopt any new software to maintain the encryption code, they are able to access any emails sent and respond to them without paying any fees.
Prior to adopting Egress Switch, Camden Council were spending around £40,000 a year sending sensitive documents via registered post and in some instances these were being misplaced. Employees at Camden Council were also using different systems to send secure documents electronically which wasn’t a viable solution or something that was easy to manage.
Over 50 UK local councils are now using Egress Switch to send secure information. Over the next 12-18 months, Tony Pepper, Egress’ CEO, hopes to see “every single local authority in England, Scotland and Wales using the product to share with third parties”.
