Email2 SCP Solutions, a Vancouver-based developer of user-friendly SaaS email encryption and secure file transfers, announces the release of the Mac® Desktop Agent for Apple computers and notebooks. This agent enables Mac users of Microsoft® Outlook and cloud-based email services including Yahoo! Mail and Gmail to benefit from the Email2’s encryption technology.
The Mac Desktop Agent makes encrypted email easy and accessible with a range of productivity enhancing features: it uses Single Sign-On (SSO) functionality to allow users to create and send secure messages or safely transfer large files with minimal effort; it instantly notifies users when they receive an encrypted email or secure file. The Mac Desktop Agent installs easily from the Email2 Secure Message Center (web mail), and is available to all Email2 users.
“As Apple computers grow in popularity and enter the business mainstream, it is critical that they comply with business-grade communication requirements including encrypted email and secure file transfer,” says Email2 CEO Thierry LeVasseur. “Our Mac Desktop Agent is a free tool for our customers, helping them extend best practices in email and file transfer security to all relevant computer platforms. This release directly supports our vision for making encryption easy to use, anywhere, any time.” Email2’s Encryption Plus platform is an enterprise-grade encryption and file transfer service that connects seamlessly to any email infrastructure and requires virtually no user training. Users can send and receive confidential information securely to any email address on any wired, Wi-Fi or mobile network and to or from any Internet enabled smartphone, tablet or laptop without having to install any software or hardware. Ease of implementation with existing email services and compatibility with systems including Microsoft Windows™, RIM Blackberry™, Google Android™, and Apple OSX/iOS™ means that users can be set up and benefiting from the service in minutes.
