Fintechs, Origo, and Beyond Encryption, a leading cyber security specialist, have made the full version of their ‘Unipass Mailock’ secure email service free to all users of Origo Unipass within financial advice firms for two months to help protect the communications and data of businesses and their clients.
Financial advisers and their staff are being provided with a code, valid until 10 April 2020, which gives free and fully featured access for 60 days (with no automatic renewal or payment information required) to the Unipass Mailock secure email service, which has been built to work seamlessly with Unipass Identity.
Anthony Rafferty, Managing Director, Origo, says: “Cybercrime has become an increasing threat to businesses and their clients, with criminals actively using technology to target unsecured emails and access sensitive and valuable information.
“The threat has been heightened in these unusual times as financial firms are adapting quickly to an escalating situation and many businesses are operating in unfamiliar remote working arrangements to ensure that they can continue to service clients, and at possibly the busiest time of year.
“Not only will they be sending emails between work colleagues but, with the end of the tax year and the volatility in the markets, there will be significant email communication with end clients too, potentially including personal and sensitive information.
“Origo and Beyond Encryption want to help support firms in this time of heightened risk. Our hope is that this action will help safeguard businesses over the coming months by enabling firms and their clients to securely and easily send documents and emails, and without having to suffer the costs and delays of using the post.”
Paul Holland, CEO and founder of Beyond Encryption says: “The National Cyber Centre has warned that in the current economic and social environment, remote workers should be aware of the greater likelihood of email scams and the need for more protection of sensitive data.
“Unipass Mailock is an all-encompassing secure email service that helps companies protect their clients and reduce the risk to their business in these unprecedented times.”
