Bytefusion, Ltd Introduces Next Generation of E-mail Encryption

DOUGLAS, Isle of Man, Sept. 16, 2002 -- It sounds like something out of The X-Files: do you know who's reading your e-mail? But as industrial espionage becomes more sophisticated, anyone's personal or business e-mails could in fact be read in transit by someone other than the recipient. But thanks to SecEx Mail, the new e-mail encryption system from Bytefusion (, e-mail encryption is now quicker, easier and more affordable than ever before.

Other e-mail encryption products rely on plug-ins that require the user to remember to encrypt outgoing e-mail. SecEx Mail runs unobtrusively in the background, automatically encrypting and decrypting email streams in real-time. Based on industry-standard RSA encryption, SecEx Mail's key management system is unsurpassed in it's ease of use.

"Probably the greatest obstacle to wide-spread use of secure e-mail is that most encryption systems don't integrate seamlessly with popular email clients," said Mark Robertson, Director of Sales at Bytefusion. "In some cases, the use of plug-ins means that encrypted messages held in mail folders are not searchable via the standard e-mail client interface. In other cases, encrypted messages held in mail folders become irretrievable once the encryption plug-in is unloaded. And in most cases, security is an afterthought whereby normal workflow is disrupted to accommodate security. Not so with SecEx Mail."

SecEx Mail is available free to home users; Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) licenses start at a one-time fee of $39.95. Bytefusion will soon release a corporate version of SecEx Mail for international or multi-location companies that need to secure communication between their offices and customers or with remote employees.

"In a nutshell, SecEx Mail will encrypt faster and more secure than currently available solutions," said Robertson. "It is invisible to the normal user, works with any e-mail client without the need for custom plug-ins, and above all is free for personal use. For commercial users, the SOHO edition represents massive cost reductions compared with other products available on the market."
