AirZip FileSECURE protects information no matter where it goes


Cupertino, CA – September 15, 2003 -- AirZip, Inc., a leading provider of outbound information security and acceleration solutions, today announced general availability of its new persistent security product AirZip FileSECURE.


Persistent Protection

AirZip FileSECURE enables the owner of information to determine who can access the information, how and when it can be used, and to record all uses of the information. The information owner can communicate with confidence knowing that the information will be used only as permitted where ever it goes. This persistent security approach differs from traditional encryption or VPN methods that protect information only until its first access. AirZip also makes the access most efficient by fitting into current work methods and by compressing files to speed their transmission.


Minimize Risk of Intellectual Property Loss

AirZip FileSECURE minimizes risks of intellectual property losses. In addition, it reduces the high administrative costs, fines, and lawsuits associated with complying with new information management policies, laws, and regulations. “With intellectual capital assets accountable for over 50% of a corporation’s stock market price, more than any time in history, companies need the competitive edge offered by AirZip FileSECURE,” said Lee Bauman, CEO of AirZip. “AirZip FileSECURE is the most advanced Internet-based persistent protection available. We support over 150 different file types and enable the information owner to determine who can view, print, copy, or control files at any time and anywhere in the world. In addition, all files secured by AirZip FileSECURE can be ‘shredded’ to implement corporate document retention policies for electronic files.”
