(The Hosting News) – GlobalSign, one of the leading providers of Digital Certificates worldwide, and NATION Technologies, an innovative software solutions provider, today announced a partnership to deliver an advanced data encryption solution branded as BIOWRAP® Certified by GlobalSign, which leverages GlobalSign’s Digital Certificates and NATION Technologies encryption application. The partnership will allow GlobalSign’s current and potential customers to benefit from the most advanced file security and data encryption solution available today.
GlobalSign has seen an increasing number of organizations large and small alike seek solutions to provide a secure method to exchange and protect electronic documents while in transit and at rest. This protection is not only best practice but is a regulatory requirement in the government, financial, insurance, and healthcare industries that call exclusively for the encryption of sensitive electronic information. In addition, States including Massachusetts, California, Washington, Michigan, and Nevada have enacted protection laws requiring the encryption of all sensitive personal information transmitted across public networks, transmitted wirelessly or stored on portable devices such as laptop computers or a flash drive. The BIOWRAP® Certified by GlobalSign solution immediately addresses the need for improved security and transparency to meet these requirements for the protection of sensitive electronic information.
Most alternative data encryption solutions in the market require the sender and the recipient of documents to exchange digital certificates. These solutions typically only address protection of the transmission, while BIOWRAP® Certified by GlobalSign encrypted files can be delivered by any electronic means and are always protected. BIOWRAP® encrypted files Certified by GlobalSign do not require recipients to use PKI in order to access sensitive files. Thus, providing an easy method for authorized recipients to gain access to protected GlobalSign certified electronic documents.
BIOWRAP® Certified by GlobalSign allows users to:
Easily encrypt any electronic information: Ensures sensitive information is kept private and remains protected wherever it resides or however it is delivered. Simply select any electronic information and encrypt it.
Define Access Rights: Easily set levels of access controls to define a range of confidentiality access rights (password protection, free public access, Digital Certificate, alliance, company or even personal file).
An Authorized Override features even allows recipients that do not meet the access requirements (or if they have lost the password for access) to request real-time access directly from the creator of the encrypted file. The creator of the file can choose to approve or deny the Readers request for access without ever displaying information about the access requirements or file creator.
Manage Retention Rights: Perform real-time updates to the lifespan of an active file, expire active files and also reactivate expired files.
Create Forensic Auditing Reports: Provide detailed information for all file activity.
Receive Real-time Notifications (set per file): Real-time notifications are delivered automatically for all file activity, and always delivered for unauthorized access attempts.
Confirm file authenticity: This a free service that validates the authenticity of files removed from BIOWRAP® encryption.
Easy and free access to encrypted files: The Free Reader is available as an application, website and web-service integration
“GlobalSign is excited to add the BIOWRAP® data encryption solution to complement its current digital certificate solutions for document security and email encryption,” said Janine Marchi, Senior Marketing Executive, GlobalSign. “The BIOWRAP® data encryption solution goes much further than alternative solutions, by providing a truly unique, cost-effective solution to meet the increasing demand for the protection and tracking of electronic information both inside and outside your organization.”
The BIOWRAP® solution is an application-based solution that allows users to easily create an unlimited number of truly secure, authenticated, and accountable electronic files using a GlobalSign Digital Certificate.
