Egress Software Technologies, the leading provider of email and file encryption solutions to professional service firms, is pleased to announce the selection of Egress Switch by Keltic Accounting Ltd in order to securely share confidential information with clients in accordance with industry standards.
Based in North East Scotland, Keltic Accounting Ltd offers a broad range of services to both business and personal customers, including accounts production, payroll, business development and specialist tax services. In order to provide the highest quality of professional service, the firm internally processes a variety of confidential information, routinely sharing it with external clients. As such, Keltic Accounting Ltd recognised the need to protect this information while in transit, and thereby comply with the Information Security Framework put in place by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Scotland (ICAS). This brings together legal and best practice guidelines to hold professional services firms accountable to the highest data protection standards, ensuring that confidential client information is not put at risk of loss or breach.
Keltic Accounting Ltd’s Office Manager Alister Strachan explains: “As a relatively new practice, we are keen to have the right business and security processes and procedures in place from the start. This involves remaining compliant with industry guidelines, such as the framework set out by ICAS, which helps accountancy firms ensure that all appropriate organisational and technical controls and policies are in place. Egress Switch offers a simple, effective and fully auditable solution to help comply with such standards, meaning we can securely and confidently share sensitive information externally with clients, as well as internally across the firm.”
Offering real-time auditing, as well as date and time restrictions, and the ability to revoke access to secure packages, Switch provides an easy-to-use yet comprehensive email and file encryption solution. As a result, users remain in control of the information they share at all times, consequently protecting them from the data losses and breaches that threaten the security of confidential information and damage business reputation.
