Pretty much all of us have to use email for business to some extent. Some companies host their own email on their own servers, while some use an ISP to outsource their email hosting. However, regardless of where it’s hosted, the security of your email message is important. If you do business in a regulated industry, security is even more critical since it is often tied into compliance.
If your email must stay very secure, you might want to check out the MailMarshal Secure Email Server from Marshal. It provides encryption and digital signing of messages, and authenticates email sender and recipient credentials to create secure communication channels between organizations. Since it’s a server-based solution, there is a single point of control to manage the email security of the entire organization, without additional workstations or software.
“Public Key Infrastructure provides a robust system for securing confidential data, but the complexity and cost of managing PKI certificate authentication with multiple partners has been a barrier to its adoption by large scale enterprise,” said Bradley Anstis, vice president of Products at Marshal. “MailMarshal Secure Email Server now automates this process to both maximize email security and minimize the administrative burden for organizations of any size.”
MailMarshal Secure Email Server offers optional levels of email encryption using Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) with S/MIME encryption standards right up to Triple-DES (168-bit) strength cryptography; ensuring that organizations can collaborate with partners using email, without exposing themselves to the risk of data-leakage or a compliance breach.
“This new solution is designed to make secure encrypted email communication between business partners easy to deploy and manage, even in the largest organizations with the most sensitive data,” said Anstis. “MailMarshal Secure Email Server provides customers with greater security and control over email-based content and deeper protection against data leakage at a significantly lower cost than any of the competitive solutions available today”
