onthenetOffice Adds Email Encryption to an Already Impressive List of Services

March 21, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Anaheim Hills, Calif. March 21, 2013 This week onthenetOffice (a leading provider of desktop hosting and other cloud-based solutions for businesses) announced its new partnership with IT security industry leader, Barracuda Networks. Through this partnership, it is now offering a new, even more secure email filtration and encryption service to its clients.

"onthenetOffice clients have come to expect a high standard of security when it comes to their infrastructures and data," CEO Alexander Saca said. "This partnership with Barracuda allows us to provide an additional layer of security to our clients who utilize our Microsoft Exchange email hosting services. We can better protect them from outside security threats like phishing attempts, spyware, and viruses as well as encrypt all of their outbound emails that contain sensitive information so that their hosted desktops and infrastructures are safe from any threats."

According to a whitepaper published by Barracuda Networks, email encryption ensures that only authorized recipients can access an email and its attachments. Unlike other email encryption services, Barracuda secures emails and attachments both as they are being transmitted and once they have reached their intended recipient.

"We chose Barracuda Networks' email encryption services because they are industry leaders who not only provide SPAM and virus filtration services, but also provide an excellent encryption service to secure the email content immediately upon its departure from the sender's outbox," Saca said. "They view email security with a similar lens to how we view our hosted desktops: they go above and beyond the typical service providers. Other services merely ensure that the data is secure while it is being transmitted. With Barracuda, the recipient has to be authorized to view the email and must enter a private password to access the content."

onthenetOffice provides desktop hosting solutions to clients in a wide variety of fields including medicine, law, government, and finance; these clients handle highly sensitive information and are especially concerned with protecting their data from hackers and other forms of malware. Adding this new layer of security by Barracuda Networks to onthenetOffice's list of solutions will allow the managed hosting provider to give its clients peace of mind when they send and receive emails. This new email encryption service will also assist clients in reaching compliance requirements such as they pertain to PCI, HIPAA, SOX & GLBA.
