DataMotion™ Offers Secure Cloud-Based Email Encryption Solutions for Credit Unions

Altra Federal Credit Union Uses DataMotion's Cloud-Based Email Encryption Solutions to Protect Member Personal Information and Compete With Large Financial Institutions

MORRISTOWN, NJ--(Marketwire - February 23, 2011) - DataMotion, Inc., a leading provider of secure information delivery solutions, today announced that it offers secure cloud-based email encryption technology for credit unions. Credit unions routinely need to exchange sensitive member information such as account numbers, social security numbers, names and addresses. DataMotion's solutions enable these institutions to easily and safely exchange this information with their members, replacing traditional, slower methods like postal mail, fax, overnight couriers and unsecured email. 

With offices and customers throughout the nation, Altra Federal Credit Union, a full service financial cooperative, meets its 66,000 members' financial needs through diversified, competitively priced services. Altra was in need of an efficient process to exchange private data with its members, which by law was required to be kept confidential. And with a small IT staff, the solution needed to be available in the "cloud" and easy to use. 

After extensive research, Altra selected DataMotion's SecureMail and SecureContact solutions. The company chose SecureMail because the system was so easy to use and it gave the organization room to grow. By using SecureMail with their existing Outlook email client, Altra can now send confidential emails to members and is assured that the member data and documents are being sent back and forth securely -- even if the member does not have secure email technology. SecureMail is also an important technology for the payroll department. Administrators now securely send all personal payroll information through email to their outsourced service provider. Additionally, when working with the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), Altra is now able to send exam results to the regulators through SecureMail. 

Altra also uses SecureContact, which enables members to securely email the credit union directly from its web portal. The technology integrates seamlessly with Altra's website, leverages corporate branding, and enables customers to securely communicate directly with Altra. With SecureContact, when a customer is interested in sending private information, they no longer need to contact the call center first to alert them to a fax or mail, eliminating several steps in the process and reducing call center calls.

"By using DataMotion's technology, we have reduced costs and increased productivity as well as compliance," said Brian Boettcher, Vice President and CIO, Altra Federal Credit Union. "Secure communications using DataMotion's services are now an essential component of our strategy."

By using DataMotion's solution, Altra has gained better visibility into email and data exchanges, making exchanges more secure and more efficient, and members are now also able to privately send secure information directly from Altra's website -- without needing additional software or encryption keys. Altra saves time and money, is 'greener' and has increased compliance using DataMotion's cloud-based communication encryption solutions. Additionally, the credit union has been able to gain a competitive edge by using the same high-end encryption as large financial institutions.

"SecureMail streamlined the way we work, resulting in increased productivity and improved customer service," added Boettcher. "This enables us to compete with much larger organizations."

"Due to stringent government regulations, increases in data theft and accidental leakage of critical information, there has never been a greater need for data encryption for email and data exchanges. Sensitive data must be protected at all times and security tools must not impede the process of doing business. Our secure communications tools offer credit unions easy to use solutions that help keep private data secure and improve the way they do business with their members and partners," said Bob Janacek, CTO, DataMotion.
