McAfee® recently announced its E-Business Server product will reach end-of-life in July 2014. Companies using E-Business Server to securely exchange confidential information need to find another solution.
PKWARE helps organizations minimize the risk of running unsupported McAfee® E-Business Server software, by providing an alternative solution that increases data delivery times and reduces storage needs above and beyond those seen with E-Business Server.
As part of daily business, the Company used McAfee® E-Business Server, which supports PGP encryption, to exchange sensitive data including insurance claims, Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and medical treatment history of customers with over 300 partners. McAfee announced the End of Support/ End of Life date of July 14, 2014 and the Company has a policy against running unsupported software because of the potential business risk. The Company needed to find an alternative to E-Business Server. They chose PKWARE SecureZIP eBusiness Edition to replace McAfee E-Business Server, because it proved to be a non-disruptive and seamless transition for their customers and partners. The Company has successfully converted to SecureZIP eBusiness Edition. Secure data transmissions between the Company and its 300+ customers and partners are happening on a 24x7 basis, minimizing the risk of a breach and non-compliance. The Company is now able to reduce data storage usage and ensure faster delivery times to partners than when they were using E-Business Server.
