Secure and Compliant
Sensitive Content Exchange and Collaboration
The digitization of state and provincial government agencies and the growing velocity of sending, sharing, and transferring confidential information create dramatic exposure risk. Many need proper security measures to protect sensitive data when transmitted electronically.
