ANNAPOLIS, MD--(Marketwire - Jan 17, 2012) - South River Technologies, Inc. (SRT), an innovator in secure file transfer and file collaboration software, announced today the release of Version 9 of its Cornerstone Managed File Transfer product. Cornerstone secures vital business data while it is stored and transferred, enabling enterprises to gain unprecedented control and visibility of the data flows. Email, file transfers and collaborative activity are secured and managed by the Cornerstone Solution.

Version 9 offers some major new features, including additional protocol support and the release of the new MailArmour module. In addition, the web-based user interface that was previously a separate option, has now been bundled into the base server platform.

The MailArmour module enhances email security. The module is unique in that it encrypts both the body of the email, as well as any email attachments. In addition to securing the email transfer, MailArmour validates the recipient to assure that confidential email is not inadvertently sent to the wrong person. Approximately 54% of corporate data breaches are caused by employee error. Many are the result of sending to the wrong recipient or adding the wrong attachment.

"It's no longer enough for businesses to simply encrypt their file transfers," said Michael Ryan, co-founder and CEO of South River Technologies. "Securing email closes one of the biggest gaps in data security and facilitates rapid adoption because the impact on the way that users work is minimal."

Cornerstone version 9 also includes support for the WebDAV protocol. WebDAV is a collaborative protocol that can support features like file-locking to prevent data conflicts.
