This partnership will provide government agencies and defence organisations with the ability to email securely across different security domains.
The two organisations have been collaborating to develop a software component system which has now been deployed into a major German government agency. With enterprises, government agencies and institutions increasingly challenged with sending secure emails across multiple domains, Boldon James and cryptovision have integrated their respective products to deliver a combined solution to meet the growing need to protect data as it is used in increasingly remote and complex environments.
