Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 13, 2011
FAXAGE, the value-leader in Internet Fax services, has recently added additional security features to its platform. As Internet Fax expands as an accepted means of doing business, augmenting or replacing traditional fax machines, regulatory compliance with various standards such as HIPAA, SOX and GLB has become a key requirement in existing and potential clients' environments.
Internet Fax, in general, has privacy advantages over shared fax machines. Individual Fax delivery can help to ensure that faxes are not available in 'public' areas within an organization. However, a service provider must offer appropriate mechanisms to protect electronic copies of faxes in order for clients to be able to realize these benefits without introducing additional risk.
FAXAGE offers the following secure Internet Fax features as a standard offering with all accounts:
1. Secure email delivery of incoming faxes allows for one or more of:
a. Password-protected SSL links to be delivered, rather than actual fax content.
b. PGP encryption of the content itself.
c. Password protection of the PDF fax document using high-security AES encryption.
d. TLS/SSL email transport layer security for server-to-server transport encryption.
2. Secure email fax sending can be achieved either by utilizing PGP to encrypt the content or by utilizing FAXAGE's email TLS/SSL support.
3. The FAXAGE website interface is protected by SSL for the entire login session.
4. The FAXAGE Internet Fax API is protected by SSL for all transactions.
FAXAGE continues to offer strong internal safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of customer information on the FAXAGE platform. Robust reporting and customer-controlled account security levels within the platform allow for compliance monitoring, ensuring not only security but reasonable assurance that organizational controls are, in fact, effective.
"We are excited to offer these features to our clients and potential clients." Says Christian Watts of EC Data Systems - the owner and operator of the FAXAGE service, "With the addition of these features, our security measures are among the strongest in the industry. This is a clear message that we understand and value our clients' business requirements and continue to enhance our platform to meet or exceed them."
FAXAGE offers a Secure Internet Fax Data Sheet as a security overview of the FAXAGE platform.
