Beyond Encryption, the industry standard for secure digital communications, is now a Certified B Corporation. They join a growing group of companies that are reinventing business, by pursuing purpose as well as profit.
Beyond Encryption is a secure software company, protecting and connecting businesses throughout the financial services industry and other aligning sectors. Beyond Encryption’s flagship product, Mailock, is a secure email solution that utilises encryption and ID authentication, giving organisations the tools they need to protect sensitive data when communicating with customers.
Beyond Encryption has been certified by B Lab, the not-for-profit behind the B Corp movement, as having met rigorous social and environmental standards which represent its commitment to goals outside of shareholder profit. The B Corp certification addresses the entirety of a business’s operations and covers the five key impact areas of Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers. The certification process is rigorous, with applicants required to reach a benchmark score of over 80 while providing evidence of socially and environmentally responsible practices relating to energy supplies, waste and water use, worker compensation, diversity, and corporate transparency.
Beyond Encryption is now part of a community of 6,279 businesses globally that have been certified as B Corps. The B Corp community in the UK, representing a broad cross-section of industries and sizes, comprises over 1,300 companies and includes well-known brands such as The Guardian, innocent, Patagonia, The Body Shop and Coursera.
A recent focus on sustainability within financial services makes Beyond Encryption’s new B Corp certification a notable asset, as financial businesses consider the best way to digitise their services and meet their ESG propositions.
Paul Holland, CEO and Founder of Beyond Encryption, says “In order to gain our B Corp certification, we had to meet a series of high-performance standards, demonstrating that we are acting mindfully and using our business as a force for good. Passing the assessment process has allowed us to join a community of extraordinary organisations that are all geared towards remaining forward-thinking and compassionate while creating a positive impact on the environment. Conducting ourselves authentically and committing to making a positive impact has always been a core value of Beyond Encryption, and the B Corp milestone just illustrates this further.”
Chris Turner, Executive Director of B Lab UK, says “We are delighted to welcome Beyond Encryption to the B Corp community. This is a movement of companies who are committed to changing how business operates and believe business really can be a force for good. We know that Beyond Encryption is going to be a fantastic addition to the community and will continue driving the conversation forward.”
