Success Story: Large Health Benefits Company

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. In 2012, McAfee publicized the End-of-Life of its McAfee E-Business Server enterprise encryption product. At the time, there was no option for continued support for McAfee E-Business Server. In addition, lengthy CPU and elapsed encryption times for exchanging data with partners were resulting in missed SLAs and associated fines. The Company chose PKWARE SecureZIP eBusiness Edition to replace McAfee E-Business Server because it reduced CPU times and costs while improving encryption capabilities. 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 McAfee E-Business Server.
