WINTER HAVEN, Fla., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Two software companies are partnering to offer a simple yet secure means of transferring even the most sensitive data by email, providing protection for health information, patents, trade secrets, contracts, financial data and other confidential correspondence.
ASG Software Solutions, a Naples, FL-based provider of creative business software, and Protected Trust, a Winter Haven, FL-based data protection firm, are now offering a secure messaging platform that can be used separately or with ASG's Cypress Suite document assembly and delivery system, company officials announced. The products are called Protected Trust ASG-Cypress integration and Protected Trust Stand Alone.
"The Protected Trust ASG-Cypress integration offers an unparalleled comprehensive document assembly and delivery solution" said Ingram Leedy, President of Protected Trust
Without security measures, emails can be intercepted, read, stored, altered, and copied without the sender's knowledge or permission. That means company and personal information is vulnerable to identity theft and other malicious attacks. Encrypting an email protects it during transmission by making it unreadable to unauthorized individuals.
Protected Trust, which provides one of the most secure email platforms available, has seamlessly integrated its message protection program into Cypress, ASG's powerful document system customized to the client's needs through product add-ons.
A key feature of the new security products is its simplicity: Users only need a little training to send secure messages, company officials said. Recipients don't have to register to open or reply to secured emails. Yet users can transmit emails without the file size limits of traditional email, safeguard messages with expiration dates, revoke messages, track messages in real time, and access secure messages with a free Microsoft Outlook add-in or with Protected Trust's web portal and a phone, tablet or computer.
Users also can meet, and beat, government requirements for privacy.
Protected Trust's end-to-end encryption protects messages before they leave the sender. Each user can require recipients to verify their identity before opening a protected document, making it possible to send invoices safely. Senders can receive proof the invoice has been delivered.
In addition to being extremely secure, the Protected Trust platform is resilient and flexible. Users can reduce fax machine usage, automate work flows, and reduce costs.
Both companies will be marketing Protected Trust Stand Alone, but Protected Trust ASG-Cypress integration will be available only through ASG.
ASG-Cypress Suite is a tool to help companies manage, access, analyze, and distribute content with little or no user training. It can capture and store any document, then build in metadata, rights, permissions and privileges. These documents can be searched, retrieved, assembled and delivered by ASG-Cypress Suite. The Suite can assist with report distribution, forms management, the addition of non-digital documents, data mining, content processing and more.
