Frankfurt, GERMANY, January 22, 2002 – Whale Communications®, a leader in web application security, today announced it is launching its e-GapT Webmail System, for secure remote email access, in Europe following the product’s success in the United States.
“We are seeing web application security high on the agenda of European businesses as they are increasingly transacting online,” said Richard Stiennon, senior Gartner security analyst. “Webmail, CRM and other web enabled applications will continue to grow as companies look to increase productivity and profitability.”
Whale’s e-Gap Webmail System enables companies to allow employees secure access to their corporate email and other collaborative applications from any web browser, anywhere–be it an Internet kiosk, client site or home. Whale’s e-Gap e-Business System allows business partners secure access to CRM web applications as well as other web applications. “Since the opening of our European headquarters in Germany last year our client base throughout the continent has really grown and demand for our products is continuing to increase,” said Daniel Steiner, Whale’s President.
“It was a natural step for us to expand our product offering and bolster our presence there.” Whale is increasing the number of its representatives throughout Europe. Whale is headquartered in the United States and its research and development is conducted in Israel.
“European businesses are highly security-conscious, especially those working with sensitive data, and they are finding Whale’s e-Gap solutions suit their eBusiness needs,” said Otto Kuemmerlen, who leads the German office. “In light of our client needs we expect the e-Gap Webmail System be the desired solution throughout Europe for remote email access.”
