VANCOUVER, BC, February 14, 2013 – CUTASC, a leader in Canadian credit union technology solutions, announced today its partnership with Echoworx, the leading provider of credential management and managed encryption services; giving CUTASC’s customers, broader access to state of the art encryption technologies.

“Credit union demand for data encryption – driven by market and regulatory needs to enhance privacy and security of information and communications – is growing rapidly.” said Brad Best, CEO of CUTASC. “The Echoworx product adds invaluable functionality to our IT solutions, as it delivers both ease of use for the members while providing the expected security for the credit union.”

“Good email encryption practices are essential for credit unions as more and more applications are being managed through the cloud and/or on mobile devices,” says Michael Ginsberg, CEO of Echoworx. “We are pleased CUTASC chose us to help protect their confidential data internally and we look forward to working with them and the credit union community.

CUTASC chose the Echoworx Encrypted Mail Gateway solution because this policy-based managed encryption solution will provide credit unions with an easy way to enforce email encryption without disrupting the day-to-day workflow of their employees. It puts the control back in the hands of the credit union by enabling them to manage their entire email infrastructure. This encryption engine not only encrypts messages based on pre-defined corporate policies, it re-directs and prevents confidential information from being distributed over the Internet to the wrong people.
