Reduced Technical Burden
The growing operational cost and technical burden of
providing a email solution and file transfer capabilities
has been further complicated by recent mandatory federal
compliance requirements. HIPAA and GLB compliance
requirements have required a change in existing email and
file transfer methodologies. Because each party in the
secure data transaction has specific authentication
requirements to document "transfer of custody" an
intermediary is often required to manage this transaction.
By using SafetySend as this intermediary it allows the
expiration, retraction, and password management between
users without the exchange of public keys or third party
software. Each party can exchange emails and large files
with nothing more than a web browser if that is all that
is available to them. SafetySend is also compatible with
Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Mozilla, Eudora, Lotus
Notes and other email clients.
Reduced Operating Cost
Choosing SafetySend will lower
operating cost by eliminating the need to purchase VPN
hardware, expensive leased lines and the staff required to
implement and maintain the hardware and the software. Many
of our clients have already made the smart move to utilize
SafetySend's established secure network
to communicate securely and
within compliance requirements without the need to
purchase any specialized equipment. We allow you to

To host and maintain a typical

dedicated server, one firewall, networking equipment,
leased line (T1, T3, etc.) and at least one technical
staff member to maintain and service the equipment.
SafetySend is the smart choice

training, equipment and experience to minimize the overall
cost and support burden that your company is required to
perform to meet compliance requirements.
Our technology can support the
same intranet/extranet services as a traditional WAN or
VPN, but VPNs have also grown in popularity for their
ability to support remote access service. In recent years,
many organizations have increased the mobility of their
workers by allowing more employees to telecommute.
Employees also continue to travel and face an increasing
need to stay "plugged in" to the company network.
Leased lines don't support
mobile workers well because the lines fail to extend to
people's homes or their travel destinations. Companies
that don't use VPNs must resort to implementing
specialized "secure dial-up" services in this case. To log
in to a dial-up intranet, a remote worker must call into a
company's remote access server using either a 1-800 number
or a local number. The overhead of maintaining such a
system internally, coupled with the possibility of high
long distance charges incurred by travelers, make VPNs an
appealing option here.
In a typical company of 1,000
employees, 15 million pages are copied, faxed and printed
each year, at an average cost of $1 million. 82,000
man-hours are spent just walking pages between desks and
imaging devices, contributing to a $2 million a year labor
cost part of a total labor cost for producing these
Simply stated, most companies
have too many printers, copiers and fax machines, in too
many places, with too much duplication of effort and too
much cost in a large enterprise.
SafetySend solutions reduce the
number of print locations while reducing the time it takes
for people to get their copies, faxes and printouts. The
key is to optimize the number, location and business rules
for usage of all equipment - so you not only lower costs,
you also get distribution closer to the end user.
Of course, while doing all this,
it's important to be sensitive to the change management
issues within your organization. This is where our
extensive onsite experience with all kinds of company
cultures can make sure this change is a change for the
Prior to the implementation of
modern VPN technology, the use of traditional leased lines
may be reasonable at first but can increase exponentially
as the organization grows. A company with two branch
offices, for example, can deploy just one dedicated line
to connect the two locations. If a third branch office
needs to come online, just two additional lines will be
required to directly connect that location to the other
However, as an organization
grows and more companies must be added to the network, the
number of leased lines required increases dramatically.
Four branch offices require six lines for full
connectivity; five offices require ten lines, and so on.
Mathematicians call this phenomenon a "combinatorial
explosion," and in a traditional WAN this explosion limits
the flexibility for growth. VPNs that utilize the Internet
avoid this problem by simply tapping into the
geographically-distributed access already available.
Compared to leased lines,
Internet-based VPNs offer greater global reach, given that
Internet access points are accessible in many places where
dedicated lines are not available.
