SoBran Unveils SafeMail DC Offsite Screening Facility

Fairfax, VA  – SoBran, Inc., the international leader in mail security, is protecting DC-region personnel and businesses with its SafeMail® DC offsite mail screening facility. SafeMail DC was launched in March, and today counts government agencies and commercial enterprises among its clients. The state-of-the-art screening facility is a first in the metropolitan area.

Far from declining, the number of suspicious pieces of mail, including those containing improvised explosive devices, is holding steady according to the U.S. Post Office. Until now, to be protected DC businesses had to purchase expensive screening equipment, hire and train screeners and risk shutting down operations when a mail threat was detected. Organizations, such as embassies, financial firms, government contractors, and non-profits, can now have cost-effective expert mail screening while ensuring business continuity.

Benefits of SafeMail DC

  • Mail screened offsite, protecting all employees from business disruption

  • Cost-effective mail screening not requiring in-house expertise, technology or staff

  • State-of-the-art screening methods and technology that would be difficult to implement for a single organization

  • Rapid turnaround time, making the process invisible to virtually all employees

  • No large capital investment required

“The environment for terrorism has heightened many organizations’ concerns about continuity of operations,” said Rich Swank, Director at SoBran. “SafeMail DC enables rapid screening at a location separate from the business -- by experts trained in the latest threat detection methods.”

SoBran has been keeping clients safe from mail borne attacks since 2001, when the U.S. Army asked them to develop and operate their mail screening program.  The company helped the General Services Administration define national mail security standards, while securing mail for clients such as the Department of Homeland Security and Wall Street institutions.
