Trustifi’s Innovative, SaaS-based Email Encryption Got Top Marks in this Prestigious Competition, Recognizing its Effective Security, Ease-of-Use, and Productivity Features
LAS VEGAS – May 17, 2021 – Leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) email security company Trustifi is proud to announce that its cyber security and email encryption solutions have won a Gold-level “Stevie®” in the 19th Annual American Business Awards®, an elite annual contest that evaluates business technology solutions from companies across the country in a wide range of categories. Trustifi ranked as the top Endpoint Security Management Solution in the Business Technology category.
The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. Nicknamed “The Stevies” for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be virtually presented to winners during a live event on Wednesday, June 30. The ABA received a record number of nominations for this year’s competition, exceeding 3,800 applications in categories such as Information Technology, Business Technology, Customer Service, New Products and Services, App of the Year, Executive of the Year, and a plethora of sub-categories.
Trustifi’s unique cyber security solutions address a critical threat to the marketplace: BEC (business email compromise). According to a new FBI report, BEC has surged ahead as a leading threat to businesses, deeming it “64 times worse than ransomware” and causing $1.8 billion in damages. Email is a frequent and vulnerable point of entry for hackers, who can typically infiltrate larger areas of a network once they compromise a user’s email infrastructure. Hackers are becoming more stealth and acutely effective in their phishing and malware techniques, carrying out shocking breaches at industry giants ranging from Microsoft and Solar Winds to service providers like GoDaddy and financial firms like Deloitte Consulting LLP.
Trustifi’s solution features best-of-breed, one-click cyber security solutions with encryption and protection for both incoming and outgoing transmissions. It utilizes complex algorithms and filters, applying sophisticated AR-powered tools such as optical character recognition to identify sensitive material, alerting users to risk levels and potential threats. The solution integrates seamlessly with Outlook, Gmail, and other prominent email servers, providing one-click encryption with a granular menu of rules and options, including compliance with various security regulations such as HIPAA, GDPR, PCI, and CCPA that can be accomplished with a simple click.
In addition, the company’s SaaS-based solution allows sent emails to reside on Trustifi’s proprietary cloud storage platform, giving the sender exceptional flexibility in redressing those messages after they are sent, including the ability to unobtrusively change the recipient list, set limits on how long an email can be retracted, or swap-out attachments. Trustifi’s Co-Founder and CEO Rom Hendler explains:
“Trustifi is committed to delivering cutting-edge email encryption that changes the way people approach cyber security, putting superior control of email data into the hands of the user. The solution has a relay-based architecture as opposed to being gateway-based, which means that messages are encrypted before they reach the recipient’s email server,” said Hendler. “This results in an extraordinary range of capabilities for altering messages and attachments even after emails have been read. We’re thrilled that the ABA judges responded so well to our unique strategy, which can dramatically reduce instances of sensitive material being inadvertently transmitted via email. This is especially relevant for companies that send personally identifying data through cyberspace every day, such as retail, banking, accounting, and healthcare organizations. As a technology provider, we’re working to proliferate more secure and easy-to-use email encryption in business environments across-the-board.”
