Echoworx – OneWorld Takes PGP to the Cloud

TORONTO, ON, May 13 2013 – Echoworx, a leading provider of email encryption services now provides the ability for PGP to be used as a fully functioning cloud service.  Both existing users of PGP and those that correspond with anyone using PGP can now benefit from the new OneWorld system.

Existing PGP keys can be loaded into OneWorld but it can also generate new ones on the fly ensuring seamless communication in any situation.

OneWorld supports the ability to deliver PGP encrypted messages and data right to the recipient’s inbox with their known PGP certificates. The sender does not need to have any certificates, keys, or software since the encryption occurs in OneWorld. OneWorld will find PGP certificates in the local repository, publically available LDAP directories, and the Echoworx Global Directory.

“We truly believe in an encryption world where everyone speaks the same language, OneWorld makes that possible.” says Michael Ginsberg, CEO, Echoworx. “Taking PGP to the cloud brings huge value to organizations and individuals who know that encryption  is critical but have no desire to manage complex deployments. Ultimately our service enables companies to use PGP more effectively and as part of their overall cloud encryption story.”

Echoworx OneWorld makes it easy for any enterprise to set the optimal encryption method and path of delivery between sender and recipient. Encryption options including PGP Encryption are selected by the enterprise and can be changed at any time. Each option can be enabled or combined to create a unique profile for each sending enterprise.
