Solution: St. Helens Council is a government agency that employs 8,500 individuals. Serving about 179,000 residents of a large town in northwest England, the Council is divided into several departments. A few departments that are part of St. Helens Council are Adult Social Care & Health, People Services, and Urban Regeneration.

Those who work in the Adult Social Care and Health department handle sensitive and very personal data on a daily basis. The adults who receive services are some of the most vulnerable members of society. The challenge this department was facing was that they needed to find a solution that would allow them to relate client care information to external organizations and providers without violating legislation regarding secure electronic communications. The department also needed an encryption solution that could be integrated into their existing network environment.

Working with PGP Gold Partner Intellect Security, the Adult Social Care and Health department decided to deploy PGP Universal Gateway E-mail to secure their sensitive data. Deployment was completed both on time and within budget.

Just a few of the numerous benefits of deploying PGP Universal Gateway E-mail include its ability to work with the council’s current infrastructure, the fact that the e-mail system secures sensitive client information and allows it to be sent securely, and the fact that all e-mails are automatically encrypted. Other positive aspects of the PGP e-mail system include its ease of use and the Council’s ability to send secure messages to recipients who do not have encrypted solutions. Finally, since information can now be sent quickly and securely to all care providers and organizations involved, the length of time patients have to wait to receive care has been reduced.
