DataMotion™ Offers Cloud-Based Email Encryption Solutions for the Banking Industry

Reading Co-operative Bank Uses DataMotion SecureMail Email Encryption Solution to Protect Sensitive Emails and File Attachments

MORRISTOWN, NJ--(Marketwire - Apr 27, 2011) - DataMotion, Inc., a leading provider of secure email encryption solutions, is seeing significant customer adoption of its SecureMail offering, a cloud-based email encryption technology specifically for community banks. Banks routinely exchange sensitive information such as details on bank operations, customer names, and account numbers with partners and clients. DataMotion SecureMail enables community banks to safely exchange email with all constituents -- Board Members, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Federal Reserve and customers -- replacing traditional methods like postal mail, fax, overnight couriers and unsecured email.

Reading Co-operative Bank is a progressive, multi-branch, full-service community bank providing personal and commercial services. Reading needed to exchange emails securely with the FDIC, the Federal Reserve and customers at a low cost, while satisfying auditor compliance requirements. In addition, the Bank is required to send confidential meeting materials to each Board Member prior to monthly Board of Director meetings. The process of printing and mailing the materials for Board Members was time-consuming, costly and did not allow Bank officials to track who received the information. With a small IT staff, Reading was looking for an easy-to-use "cloud-based" solution that didn't require software installation or server maintenance.

After evaluating several secure email solutions, including in-house development, Reading began using DataMotion SecureMail. Reading chose SecureMail because of the system's affordability, ease of use and ability to grow with the company. Anthony J. Patti, Senior Vice President/CFO/Treasurer of Reading Co-operative Bank, said, "Over the last few years we looked at a variety of solutions that offered secure email -- but they were out of our budget. We started working with an auditing firm that was using SecureMail, and once I learned about the features, functionality and cost of SecureMail, I was sold."

By using SecureMail, Reading can easily email meeting materials to Board Members and exchange confidential information with customers, the FDIC and the Federal Reserve. They now have full confidence that the sensitive material is being sent securely -- without needing additional software or encryption keys. Reading's marketing department is also pleased since the solution is branded to the Bank, providing a seamless and consistent user experience for employees and email recipients. Auditors and government regulators are also satisfied with the security provided. In addition, the Bank's printing and mailing costs are lower and employees are more productive.

"Now that we use SecureMail we just click on the 'Send Secure' button and we are assured that all of the emails that contain sensitive information are secure -- without managing encryption keys, user names or even passwords. The technology is easy to use for our employees as well as our Board Members. We've had such tremendous success using DataMotion's SecureMail that we are considering expanding the technology to our lending and operations groups," added Patti.

"One key finding in the 2010 ICBA Community Bank Technology Survey is that community banks are strongly committed to protecting bank and customer data, both to strengthen their brand and to meet privacy regulations," said Bob Janacek, CTO, DataMotion. "Our technology works in tandem with these institutions to protect sensitive financial data without impeding day to day bank processes."
