Pros: It's easy to use once set-up. There is minimal training required. I also like the prompts that appear even when I don't want to encrypt. Very helpful!

Cons: Can be confusing for some people but generally it is because they think they have to log in each and every time they want to send an e-mail. Also I would prefer if I could transfer larger packets of data without having to access the cloud facility.

Overall: We strongly recommend this software to all our clients to ensure that their data is protected during transfer to and from our processing team. Clients payroll data is particularly sensitive and regardless of legislation requirements, it deserves protection and security. We provide this by insisting that all our clients use Egress.

Pros: Very simple to use with the Outlook plugin and no issues with opening or sending encrypted e mails either internally or externally

Cons: When it automatically creates a large file and encrypts the e mail if the attachments are over a certain size even if I don't want the e mail encrypted

Overall: Knowing that e mails which contain business sensitive or personal information are more secure. This is very important to us especially with the changes to GDPR

Pros: Integrates with Outlook and is very easy to use. Also allows secure large file transfer to external bodies

Cons: There isn't really anything negative about the software. The secure workspace that we use is a little difficult to navigate through and permissions could be better if separated between workspace and email

Overall: Ability to use secure transmission of data

The product is very easy to use and offers the functionality required.
