(NASDAQ:TMWD), a leading provider of mission-critical communication solutions for enterprises, financial services, healthcare and government, announced today a strategic technology agreement with Child Health Corporation of America (CHCA) to provide secure messaging solutions to 41 CHCA children's hospitals that include many of the nation's largest and best-known not-for-profit children's hospital and health care systems in North America.
Under the agreement, Tumbleweed will offer its industry-leading email firewall, anti-spam, email encryption and secure file delivery software products to CHCA Owner Hospitals to secure their Internet communications.
