Randolph, NJ (PressExposure) April 19, 2008 -- CDX Technologies is pleased to announce the release of version 4.2.3 of ESafeFileTM, its file and email security software. ESafeFile uses the secure AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) and is an easy-to-use, cost-effective approach to file and email protection. A fully functional evaluation program can be downloaded at http://www.cdxesafefile.com.
âOther security programs that require digital certificates or ongoing subscriptions have their place, but can be expensive and complicated to use,â says CDX Technologies president Bill Hughes. âESafeFile is a simple and effective alternative for securing files, email messages and attachments which might otherwise just go unprotected.â
ESafeFile creates encrypted, password-protected self-extracting files. The program automatically encrypts and zips email attachments (or entire email messages) to reduce file size and provide secure, fast delivery. Multiple files can be placed in a single attachment and selectively extracted. The email recipient does not have to install special software or download encryption keys. Attachments can also be customized with a company logo for a professional appearance that assures the sender is genuine.
ESafeFile works with Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express, as well as other MAPI based email programs. Thereâs no need to learn a new mail program or share your data with a web-based encryption email service. The program includes contact management that can store and retrieve data for multiple email recipients. This includes the ability to save user-generated passwords for data encryption with each contact, allowing for more complex and more secure password strings.
AES encryption used by ESafeFile has been approved by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and is the current encryption standard of the U.S. National Security Agency.
Encryption of sensitive files and emails now goes beyond protecting information such as trade secrets or company confidential data. According to Hughes, both small and large businesses are grappling with how to comply with regulations such as Gramm-Leach Bliley and HIPAA which mandate the protection of financial and medical records. âThe requirements will continue to grow as similar laws are passed in other countries,â he says. âAnd considering the potential for email interception or even malicious dissemination, we expect that data encryption using an application like ESafeFile will become a routine event for many computer users.â
