NORCROSS, Ga., Oct. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EasyLink Services International Corporation ("EasyLink" or "Company") (Nasdaq:ESIC) ( www.easylink.com ), a global provider of comprehensive messaging services and e-commerce solutions, today announced that a popular global social networking site has selected EasyLink's fax services to facilitate law enforcement communication and safety on the social network.

Law enforcement agencies around the world recognize fax as an important mechanism for exchanging information. By utilizing EasyLink's secure and redundant global fax network, the social networking service and law enforcement agencies are able to send and receive messages related to the reporting and investigation of unlawful activities. The ability to exchange faxes directly from the desktop via EasyLink's on-demand fax service allows the social networking service to work more efficiently with law enforcement agencies. 

The social networking service is capable of provisioning new fax numbers as needed in more than 48 countries around the world, enabling it to immediately create secure communication paths with law enforcement agencies. To accomplish this, they will use EasyLink's web-based portal to set up and modify user accounts on demand.

"EasyLink's Cloud-based fax service is a cost-effective and dynamic solution for companies that need to exchange critical documents globally with law enforcement or other investigatory bodies where time is often of the essence," explained Kevin Maloney, Senior Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing of EasyLink Services. "EasyLink's fax service allows companies to rapidly scale their faxing needs in minutes, as opposed to days or even weeks with an on-premise fax infrastructure."
