The agreement will enable Mirapoint to leverage Tumbleweed’s proprietary encryption and decryption technology patents to provide enhanced email communications to its customers worldwide. Terms of the license agreement with Mirapoint were not disclosed.

The license agreement with Mirapoint covers Tumbleweed’s two US patents titled ‘Encryption and Decryption Method with Content Analysis Provision’ and ‘Email Firewall with Stored Key Encryption/Decryption’.

Jeffrey Witous, CEO of Mirapoint Software, said: This agreement gives us access to technology that will allow us to further our commitment to providing secure communications to our 120 million global users. As a company we are focused on delivering secure communications and this agreement with Tumbleweed ensures that our customers have accesses to the best technology available.

Christophe Fabre, CEO of Axway, said: We’re pleased to license our technology to Mirapoint Software as it creates synergies for both companies. In keeping with Tumbleweed’s history, we continue to invest millions of dollars every year in R&D to enhance our solutions for our customers.
