Shed a Tear for the Cyber Hackers -- Evizone Launches a New Freemium Service at INTA 2012 Offering Industry Leading No-Files-Left-Behind Copy Protected Secure Communications
Evizone - Managed and Secure communication services
WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - May 7, 2012) - INTA 2012 -- The life of a cyber hacker just got harder, because customers using Evizone leave nothing to hack. Evizone protects mission-critical intellectual property (IP) and other confidential information with the most complete and secure communication system commercially available. Starting today, Evizone Ltd., based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, is offering its no-files-left-behind service on a Freemium basis to any workgroup interested in fully protecting its communications from cyber-attacks and corporate espionage.
The cyber-security cold war is real and expanding. In December 2011, Bloomberg News reported that the networks of at least 760 companies, research universities, Internet service providers and government agencies were hit over the last decade by elite cyber spies who use a proverbial vacuum cleaner to suck IP out of organizations by the terabyte. Based on what is known of attacks from China, Russia and other countries, a declassified estimate of the value of the blueprints, chemical formulas and other material stolen from U.S. corporate computers in the last year reached almost $500 billion.
"Cyber hackers are a very present threat in our industry," said Greg Johnson, Chief Operating Officer of Victoria, BC-based MedGenesis Therapeutix Inc., a specialty biopharmaceutical company with a focus on targeted medicines. "We expand our IP portfolio through strategic collaborations and partnership agreements, so the protection of all communications surrounding that exchange of information is essential. We looked hard for a solution to address the broader unsecured email conversations that inevitably occur among our workgroups, and that's why we chose Evizone."
"Using the new Evizone Freemium service, workgroups can start communicating securely within 15 minutes of registering online at www.evizone.com," said Evizone Ltd. CEO Andrew Coutts. "They will enjoy transmission of 1 GB/month/account and a 1GB file size limit. Evizone's Premium service is available at $25 per month per user based on 5 GB/user/month and a 2GB file size limit. Enterprise-wide subscription rates with fully customizable parameters are also available."
"Unlike free single-user services, Evizone's Freemium service for entire workgroups provides a full feature set for multiple users. The strong customer-defined policy management capabilities of Evizone are part of the Freemium offering. Account administrators enforce and can customize security policies. For example, account administrators using Evizone can set minimum and maximum retention periods for all communications," said Coutts.
Conventional email propagates multiple copies of documents, files and messages in numerous locations and then gives these communications an almost perpetual life. Evizone's no-files-left-behind communications only reside within the company's dedicated servers, leaving no hackable copies on the user's computers or elsewhere. Evizone's messages and documents cannot be saved, copied, forwarded or printed. When required, Evizone also provides for the secure transfer of files without leaving a trace within the conventional email system or within the recipient's browser cache and history.
Evizone provides a fast, cost-effective solution for any private electronic conversations subject to regulatory requirements, legal privilege or that may become part of an e-discovery process -- whether it is a Board of Directors planning business strategy and considering new executive hires, an M&A team working on a corporate takeover, or a medical team conducting a peer review or a legal team working on a patent application. Unlike conventional email, Evizone helps organizations to comply with requirements such as SEC, HIPAA and other regulations simply by using the service. Evizone's patent-pending anti-screen capture software for both PCs and Macs also prevents the use of print screen, screen capture and recording tools and web conferencing as a means of bypassing copy protection -- a significant failing of browser-based "private email" and data room/deal room solutions.
