IN-Q-TEL SELECTS AUTHENTICA TO ENHANCE CONTENT SECURITY SOLUTIONS ON MULTIPLE PLATFORMS

Aug. 2003

Solution to Extend Beyond Secure Delivery to Provide Continuous Control and Protection for E-mail Anywhere, Anytime

Authentica, Inc., a leading provider of secure messaging and secure document sharing solutions for protecting valuable intellectual property and confidential business information, today announced that it has been selected by In-Q-Tel, a private venture group funded by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), to study enhancements for its content security solutions.

Authentica’s content security solutions — such as its PageRecall™ and SafeRoute™ products are already deployed at U.S. government agencies to protect sensitive documents that are shared electronically with a wide range of audiences.

PageRecall enables organizations to share sensitive and valuable content without giving up control: it ensures that the content is always secure no matter where it is distributed or stored. SafeRoute gives organizations a simple and flexible solution to centrally manage and control e-mail in accordance with established e-mail security and retention policies — without disrupting their existing messaging infrastructure or requiring cumbersome steps for users.

“We selected Authentica because of its experience and track record in providing proven content security solutions to U.S. government customers,” said Gilman Louie, CEO of In-Q-Tel. “The ability to persistently protect e-mail and attachments after they are downloaded continues to be incredibly valuable to this market.”

“We’re looking forward to working with In-Q-Tel to provide effective content security that meets the needs of both government and commercial users,” said Lance Urbas, president and CEO at Authentica®. “National security organizations are under increasing pressure to share data at a faster rate across many different platforms and devices. By extending our rights management capabilities, it will allow the sharing of sensitive data and enable faster communication across all platforms, even those outside of the traditional environment.”
