International award program recognizes outstanding products and companies in information security
DRACOON, enterprise file sharing expert and market leader in the German-speaking countries, was today named winner of the "Email Security Platform of the Year" award by Cybersecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market information organization that recognizes the best companies, technologies and products in the global information security market.
Email remains the most popular way to share information. However, traditional email encryption programs typically encrypt the entire email, a cumbersome method that is often unnecessary because the sensitive information is usually in an attachment. With DRACOON, file attachments of any size can be automatically converted into download links, encrypted with the help of a simple Outlook add-in and sent in compliance with GDPR. This guarantees a secure data transfer, which is also in accordance with the data protection laws.
"With DRACOON for Outlook e-mails can still be written in the familiar environment and attachments of any size can be attached as desired. These are then securely sent as download links," explains Arved Graf von Stackelberg, CEO and CSO of DRACOON, "In addition, the validity period of the link or the number of downloads can be limited and a password can be set. Thus the sender has control over the data at any time".
The mission of the Cybersecurity Breakthrough Awards is to recognize excellence and reward innovation, hard work and success in a number of information security categories. These categories include cloud security, threat detection, risk management, fraud prevention, mobile security, email security and many others. This year's program received more than 3,500 nominations from over 15 different countries around the world.
"Since the introduction of the GDPR last year, the importance of data protection has increased significantly. Violations can not only cost companies heavy fines, but also lead to a loss of reputation," said James Johnson, CEO of CyberSecurity Breakthrough. "DRACOON helps companies to follow these strict rules and process personal data in accordance with legal requirements. Congratulations to DRACOON on their well-deserved 2019 Cybersecurity Breakthrough Award".
