Press release from: Softek



June 1st 2010: Softek today announce it has been appointed as the sole distributor in the UK for Cryptshare.

Cryptshare is a software solution that ensures that bi-directional, ad-hoc file transfers between business partners, customers and staff are fully encrypted, easy to manage and provide a full audit trail of provision and access. An intuitive web-browser interface means zero training for users is required.

Email (or FTP) is not the best way to send secure documents, files, data or intellectual property. Files can be large, they may need to be encrypted, and quite often mailbox policies are in place which restrict the size of emails people can send or receive.

“Wherever e-mail is used, files - often large - are attached, and this is a problem for many companies who both send and receive them. Email is not optimised for this purpose; excessive amounts of system resources, bandwidth and storage are wasted when staff use e-mail for file transfers and this costs a great deal of money. ” says Matthias Kess, product manager for Cryptshare. He goes on, “Cryptshare solves this problem and removes the stress from handling large file transfers in a secure way for users and for system administrators.”

“When we first tried Cryptshare we were excited at the speed with which value could be given to our customers” said Mike Bienvenu, Technical Director of Softek. “This is a solution for a problem that most companies face. It is the simplicity of use that makes Cryptshare a compelling proposition for end users and all Resellers of IT security solutions for business.”

Cryptshare has been expanding rapidly across Europe, and to further support the UK operations Mark Forrest has been appointed to the position of Global Chief Operating Officer (COO). Forrest is a veteran of IT security solutions vendors, including a spell at Anti-Virus giant Sophos as Sales and Marketing Director. Forrest commented “Cryptshare makes a complex problem easy to solve, as soon as I tried it I could see the potential in the UK market which is significant.” He goes on, “I am excited to join the team, and lead a talented group of staff and partners such as Softek to realise the potential of this innovative solution. “

CryptShare is delivered as a software package or VMware Virtual appliance, which can be configured in a matter of minutes, and which can be fully branded by an organisation
