VSM is set to revolutionise business practice by introducing a secure, inexpensive, easy and effective means for the delivery of digital data

Protx, a secure Internet solutions provider, has launched VSM, a highly secure email product that enables the sending of documents in a very simple, cost effective, efficient and practical manner.

With no set up cost, no maintenance charge and a flat rate of just 10p per secure email, VSM can be used by everyone from businesses sending out invoices, to banks sending out statements as well as legal letters and documents. In fact, any document or data that can be sent through the traditional post can be sent via VSM.

Michael Alculumbre, CEO, Protx said; “The beauty of the system is that the recipient doesn’t have to do anything, nor do they need any training. As long as they have a web browser, an Internet account and know their unique password, they can receive documents and other types of data and content such as music, video and software in a secure and convenient way.”

“Because businesses will want to take advantage of the convenience and cost savings that VSM delivers, I believe that the traditional offline postal service will disappear within five years.”

VSM has just completed a successful trial - brokered through Protx channel partner The RSM Group - with a leading petroleum company. Mark Goldspink, spokesperson for RSM said; “The client was delighted with the trial of VSM. They used it to send invoices to their retail outlets. The product saved the client time and money and guaranteed the secure delivery of sent items.”

One of the main benefits of VSM is that it avoids the complexities and overheads associated with alternative encryption methods such as Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) without having to sacrifice the level of security that organisations look for in secure email solutions.

Other built-in features allow the sender to track the number of times a document is opened and even limit the number of attempted openings before the VSM authentication is removed. VSM documents include a fingerprint or seal that can prove the time that it was sent and that it has not been tampered with. VSM is also able to accommodate multi-level authentication, which is vital in any compliance-regulated business that demands full audit trail availability. Furthermore because the file sent is in the form of encrypted HTML, it will pass through any firewall.

VSM can be taken either as a supplied application service or as a fully licensed site. As an application service, there is a flat rate charge of 10p per secure email. Costs for licensing the product depends on volume of transactions.
