DataMotion(TM) Offers Secure Email Encryption for State and Local Government Agencies(November 03, 2011)
MORRISTOWN, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 11/03/11 -- DataMotion, Inc., a leading provider of email encryption and workflow solutions, today announced its SecureMail technology is now available for state and local government agencies that need to exchange, track and report sensitive information quickly and securely with other agencies, municipalities and private citizens. Every day government agencies process and circulate private information -- from individual background checks to tax and fiscal data -- all of which needs to be encrypted, exchanged and tracked, quickly and easily.
"Unencrypted content has serious consequences, which is why United States privacy laws like HIPAA, GLBA, PCI DSS, and FERPA require strong encryption for messages that carry sensitive personal information when transmitted across the Internet," said Bob Janacek, CTO, DataMotion. "Sensitive content is everywhere, and establishing an easy to use secure communication when transmitting this data is critical. By implementing SecureMail, state and local government agencies can be assured that the sensitive information they exchange is secure and in compliance."
In addition to security, agencies receive many other benefits by using SecureMail. For example, a state law enforcement agency delivers over one million courier packages each year containing the results of personnel background checks. To defray processing and overnight courier costs, the agency imposed a fee for each background check requested. As budgets tightened, the agency looked for ways to streamline its operations and reduce operating costs. The agency turned to DataMotion SecureMail to enable secure electronic delivery of the reports, significantly reducing the cost of production. The agency now also has the ability to track the reports to the recipients.
In another example, city taxation departments frequently receive inquiries from citizens via email that contain social security numbers and personal tax information. Regular email is not secure or compliant, so these departments have leveraged DataMotion SecureContact -- an inbound form of SecureMail, giving their citizens a secure portal to send sensitive messages and file attachments to their departments. Not only does SecureContact bring the data transfers into compliance, it greatly improves the efficiency of resolving issues and replying back to citizens.
DataMotion SecureMail is a cost-effective service that works seamlessly with legacy systems to protect messages sent between state and local government agencies, affiliated organizations and their citizens. With SecureMail, agencies are often up and running in less than an hour, ensuring messages are immediately trackable, compliant with internal policies and external regulations, and protected with military-grade encryption. In addition, SecureMail works within existing email systems and does not require any additional hardware or infrastructure.
