Protected Trust, a Winter Haven, Florida-based data protection firm and ASG Software Solutions (ASG), a recognized innovator in enterprise IT, business and cloud computing software solutions, announced today a partnership and the release of the Protected Trust Secure Messaging platform, available for ASG-Cypress as well as a Stand Alone version.
Protected Trust Secure Messaging for ASG-Cypress and Protected Trust Stand Alone provide a simple, yet highly secure messaging platform for transferring information and communicating with customers by email. Both solutions provide unparallel protection for sensitive health information, patents, trade secrets, contracts, financial data, and other confidential correspondence.
“Protected Trust for ASG-Cypress offers a comprehensive, highly secure document output and customer communication management solution,” said Ingram Leedy, President of Protected Trust. “ASG-Cypress customers that require compliance with email security protocols now have an extremely simple and effective secure messaging platform for email communications and document transfers.”
Without security measures, emails can be intercepted, read, stored, altered, and copied without the sender’s knowledge or permission – leaving company and personal information vulnerable to identity theft and other malicious attacks. Encrypting an email protects it during transmission by making it unreadable to unauthorized individuals.
A key feature of Protected Trust Secure Messaging for ASG-Cypress and Protected Trust Standalone is simplicity: streamlined implementations require minimal IT intervention and users require minimal training to transmit secure messages. With the Protected Trust Secure Messaging platform, users easily transmit emails (avoiding file size limits of traditional email) while safeguarding customer communications and documents by tracking messaging in real-time, employing expiration dates, revoking messages, and accessing secure messages via a computer, tablet or phone. A Microsoft Outlook add-in and Protected Trust’s web portal are also available.
Protected Trust’s end-to-end secure messaging platform protects messages before they leave the sender and don’t require recipients to register to open or reply to secured emails and documents. Users can require recipients to verify their identity before opening a protected document, making it possible to send invoices safely. Senders can also receive proof that the email containing sensitive information (e.g., invoices) has been delivered. This functionality allows organizations to easily comply with corporate polices and government regulations.
Both companies will be selling the Protected Trust Stand Alone solution; the Protected Trust Secure Messaging for ASG-Cypress will be available exclusively from ASG.
