IP Meets Encryption

Reconnex announced plans to integrate the Reconnex iGuard content-aware appliance with PostX's email encryption appliance

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Reconnex, the information protection experts, and PostX, the leading email encryption provider, today announced plans to integrate the Reconnex iGuard content-aware appliance with PostX’s email encryption appliance. Designed to address organizations’ requirements to protect intellectual property (IP) assets and secure private data, the joint solution will link deep content monitoring capabilities with policies for encrypting sensitive data before it is sent out via email.

Security, and specifically the protection of sensitive data, is becoming crucial for all types of businesses. Most industries today struggle to protect IP and other sensitive data such as source code, patents, drug development, marketing strategies, and even employees’ personal information. Many factors lead to the leakage of this information, including human error, lack of compliance standards in place, outdated technologies, and outmoded business policies.

“Reconnex’s partnership with email encryption leader PostX extends the utility of our content discovery and monitoring solution,” said Faizel Lakhani, vice president of marketing at Reconnex. “We’ve already seen strong interest from customers looking to automate their IT security by better leveraging content awareness to drive policy actions, such as encrypting traffic. The new relationship with PostX will help us deliver on this vision with the kind of turnkey, purpose-built appliances our customers expect for their security applications.”
