LONDON, April 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SendSafely, a leader in end-to-end encrypted file exchange and email encryption, has been named a finalist in the SC Awards 2016 Europe for outstanding threat solution products in information security. SendSafely is being recognised in the Best Cloud Computing Security Solution category, which acknowledges superior products and services that help customers address the most pressing cyber-security threats. The winners will be announced at the SC Magazine Awards Europe ceremony to be held in London on Tuesday 7th June at Old Billingsgate on the Riverside of the Thames.
"We are thrilled to be a finalist for this year's SC Magazine Awards Europe," said Brian Holyfield, the Chief Technology Officer at SendSafely. "Europe has always led the charge for strict global data privacy standards. Our technology lets companies easily and safely exchange information while maintaining regulatory compliance."
Award winners will be decided by an expert panel of judges, hand-picked by SC Magazine UK's editorial team for their breadth of knowledge and experience in the information security industry. The awards honour both the cyber-security professionals working in the trenches, and the products and services that help protect today's corporate world from a variety of ever-changing threats.
"SendSafely's solution represents one of the most innovative and effective security technologies on the market today," said Tony Morbin, Editor in chief SC Magazine UK. "As attackers develop and practice new approaches to compromising sensitive information, companies are challenged to keep pace. SendSafely was named an SC Award finalist for its efforts to raise the bar for the security industry."
SendSafely provides non-technical users with a way to easily share sensitive files securely using end-to-end encryption. With end-to-end encryption, nobody other than the sender and the intended recipients can decrypt the information. "In the wake of recent high-profile cyber attacks, companies that handle extremely sensitive information on behalf of customers have realized the need to gain a higher level of assurance that their data won't be exposed due to a breach," said Holyfield. "We also offer our European customers with isolated hosting in our EU Data Centre, which has become a key feature since the US-EU Safe Harbour framework was declared to be invalid back in October."
Winners of this year's SC Magazine Awards Europe will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony at Old Billingsgate in central London.
SendSafely offers a hassle-free way for business users to securely exchange encrypted files and confidential email with anyone on the web. SendSafely also provides add-ons for popular platforms like Microsoft Outlook, Google Mail, Zendesk and Marketo, allowing companies to instantly add end-to-end encryption capabilities to third-party platforms they already use.
