Original Press Release:
CDX Technologies Releases ESafeFile 5.0 Now Supporting Secure Web File Transfers
CDX Technologies is pleased to announce the release of version 5 of ESafeFile, its file and email security software. ESafeFile uses the secure AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) and is an easy-to-use, cost-effective approach to file and email protection. Version 5 now supports direct uploading of large files that can't be emailed to a secure password protected internet site using CDXWebSpace. This only allows approved users to download the file. A fully functional evaluation program can be downloaded at www.cdxesafefile.com.
"Other security programs that require digital certificates or ongoing subscriptions have their place, but can be expensive and complicated to use," says CDX Technologies president Bill Hughes. "ESafeFile is a simple and effective alternative for securing files, email messages and attachments which might otherwise just go unprotected. With direct uploading to the internet using CDXWebSpace now supported, email size limits are no longer a restriction in transferring large files."
ESafeFile creates encrypted, password-protected self-extracting files. The program automatically encrypts and zips email attachments (or entire email messages) to reduce file size and provide secure, fast delivery. Multiple files can be placed in a single attachment and selectively extracted. Files can be emailed or delivered directly without installing special software or downloading encryption keys.
ESafeFile works with Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express, as well as other MAPI based email programs or uploads directly to the Internet using a standard browser. The program includes contact management that can store and retrieve data for multiple email recipients. This includes the ability to save user-generated passwords for data encryption with each contact, allowing for more complex and more secure password strings.
Encryption of sensitive files and emails now goes beyond protecting information such as trade secrets or company confidential data. According to Hughes, both small and large businesses are grappling with how to comply with regulations such as Gramm-Leach Bliley and HIPAA which mandate the protection of financial and medical records. "The requirements will continue to grow as similar laws are passed in other countries," he says. "And considering the potential for email interception or even malicious dissemination, we expect that securing and transferring data using an application like ESafeFile will become a routine event for many computer users."
