Texas Department of Information Resources Selects EncrypticsTM to Safeguard Data
FRISCO, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Encryptics, a provider of patented data privacy and protection services
for businesses and government, announced today that it has been selected
by the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) to deploy the
state government's first implementation of device-level email encryption.
"The capabilities that the Encryptics solution brings to bear are an
important element of our overall security strategy," Karen W. Robinson,
Chief Information Officer, State of Texas, said in the DIR's case study
about the implementation.
Encryptics supports the DIR's mission by providing:
Multi-layered security that protects information when it is in
transit, in use and at rest.
Agency-wide implementation with no additional hardware that DIR must
buy or maintain.
Cross-platform support for "bring-your-own-device" (BYOD) capabilities.
Robust Digital Rights Management (DRM) that gives the agency real-time
control of who can see and share their digital content, and when.
Secure communications with any outside entity and the ability to
receive encrypted messages and files in return.
Continued ability to comply with freedom of information requests.
Mitch Scherr, Chief Executive Officer of Encryptics, said, "Our team
created theindustry's first Trusted Peer-to-PeerTM platform,
and we are very pleased that DIR selected our solution for robust yet
cost-effective data protection."
The Encryptics solution can fit within existing IT infrastructures and
can be deployed with no disruption to the work of employees.
"The traditional trade-off is security versus business efficiency," said
Todd Kimbriel, DIR's Director of DCS Services and eGovernment. "There
are many ways to increase communication security, but there is always
some measure of slowing down the communication process. In DIR's use of
Encryptics, we found we could increase our security posture without
sacrificing business efficiency."
