Safend Partnership With Biscom Provides Added Layer of Security for Organizations Sharing Sensitive Files

PHILADELPHIA, PA and TEL AVIV, ISRAEL and CHELMSFORD, MA--(Marketwire - October 19, 2010) -  Safend, a leading provider of endpoint data protection solutions, today announced a partnership with Biscom, the most trusted name in enterprise secure file transfer. Through this partnership, Safend Inspector, a product in Safend's Data Protection Suite, has been integrated with Biscom Delivery Server to ensure that only secure file transfer is being used when sensitive data files are traveling between business partners.

As organizations seek out partners to expand their business offerings, data shared between those organizations requires data be transferred in a secure and swift manner. Biscom Delivery Server enables users to send files, documents, and messages securely over an encrypted channel. Content transferred through the Biscom Delivery Server remains unexposed when navigating the path between users at various locations. Safend Inspector, using Safend's content filtering technology enhances Biscom's secure document exchange by identifying emails containing confidential data, including protected health information (PHI), and personally identifiable data, and enforcing secure delivery through Biscom.

"The partnership with Biscom provides our customers not only with market-leading data monitoring classification and filtering, but also seamless and secure transfer of sensitive content between business partners," said Edy Almer, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Safend. "As more organizations share data to increase their business offerings, the need to securely move that data also increases. This partnership will provide that solution."

"Through the integration of Inspector with Biscom Delivery Server, Biscom's customers can now enforce usage of secure file transfer every time they are moving sensitive files," said Charlie Magliato, Legal Practice Manager, Biscom. "Additionally, those end-users will receive education on the need to securely and efficiently transfer data from end-user to end-user and business partner to business partner."

This product will be demonstrated by Biscom at a product symposium with the International Legal Technology Association on Oct. 22.
