Secure e-mail and web gateway provider Marshal has introduced an e-mail encryption system it claims takes the pain out of enforcing secure communications rules.
The system, called MailMarshal Secure e-mail Server, combines encryption, digital signing and content inspection of e-mail traffic, and works with any e-mail gateway that supports S/MIME encrypted e-mail, the company said.
The company aims to provide a single point of control where administrators can manage e-mail encryption for an entire organization.
The system is easy to use, Marshal said, requiring no workstation software and no user training.
The server automatically updates contact details and certificate credentials via LDAP synchronization, making it easier and cheaper for large groups of business partners to use encrypted e-mail, Marshal said.
MailMarshal supports multiple levels of encryption using Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) with S/MIME encryption standards, up to Triple-DES (168-bit) cryptography, Marshal said.
The company said many organizations have held back from implementing PKI due solely to its cost and complexity.
