Ironport integrates e-mail security to include data loss prevention, encryption
IronPort Systems, a Cisco business unit, that develops anti-spam and anti-spyware appliances, has introduced of a new data loss prevention and encryption capability for e-mail.
The new functionality is included in IronPort's AsyncOS operating system which powers IronPort's e-mail security appliances. These built-in features will integrate the help protection of corporate information by combining the traditional e-mail security functions of spam and virus filtering with work-flow based functions of policy creation, content scanning and message encryption, quarantining and/or archiving.
IronPort now offers encryption capabilities using IronPort's PXE encryption technology directly integrated on the appliance. Incoming and outgoing mail can now be encrypted and decrypted with no additional hardware required to filter, route and deliver messages with security. Based on the policies, outbound messages are detected and automatically encrypted on the appliance.
