Businesses in the health, insurance or finance sectors are required by law to adequately protect electronic data... with tailored encryption and archiving solutions.

SherWeb, a leading provider of cloud services and Microsoft’s 2013 World Hosting Partner of the Year, announced today that it has launched a new compliant email product suite that will help companies meet compliance regulations by allowing them to seamlessly safeguard and protect electronic data.

The three products, sold separately, include "Organization Data Leak Prevention", "End-to-End Encryption" and "Compliant Archiving”. Their launch certainly comes at a critical time. With the final Health Insurance and Portability Act (HIPAA) omnibus rule now in effect as of September 23, all companies dealing with electronic medical information are required to comply with privacy practices in the transmission of digital data. SherWeb says its compliance solution goes well beyond HIPAA-regulated enterprises, however. The long-time hosting provider is touting the new product suite as the most complete compliancy solution for Hosted Exchange 2013 users on the market, able to meet the requirements of other regulations as well, such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). SherWeb says its new compliance products will also address the needs of companies that simply want more control over preventing confidential data leaks.

"Businesses in the health, insurance or finance sectors are required by law to adequately protect data," says Rima Hatoum, SherWeb’s Product Manager for Hosted Exchange. "But many other industries now also need tailored encryption and archiving solutions when it comes to electronic data. Our new products allow organizations of any size or in any field of activity to address all their security and control needs."

SherWeb adds that these new products integrate with Outlook as plug-ins and are effortlessly managed by users and administrators.

"We developed our new offering around the end-user experience,” said Hatoum. “Whether it’s searching archived messages or having an email encrypted before being sent, we wanted to ensure the simplest and most seamless process. Even for administrators looking for data leak prevention, keywords lists will do the trick by automatically filtering emails to effectively control the communication of sensitive data.”

These products join the archiving service SherWeb already provides its 20,000 customers worldwide. SherWeb also offers 24/7 technical support, migration (a value of $25 per mailbox) and onboarding services—all free of charge. The compliant email suite is available to both retail customers and SherWeb’s partner channel as of today, at a competitive price.

The compliant email suite is offered exclusively with SherWeb’s Hosted Exchange® 2013 plan.
