There are several parts to an effective secure email solution. Your business needs will vary depending on your industry, the sensitivity of your data, and regulatory demands. In general, there are a few areas such as Advanced Threat Protection, Encryption, Archiving/Journaling, and SPAM filtering that can benefit your organization from both security and productivity standpoints.
Advanced Threat Protection will put all emails through multiple levels of vetting before it is allowed to enter your network. ATP will automatically run all emails against an enormous database of threat signatures. If the content is identified as malicious the email is quarantined. Email is then subjected to a behavioral analysis where the system looks at the scrips and code to determine if anything in them indicates malicious behavior. Any executable code is then examined and quarantined if deemed dangerous. Finally, the email is executed in a sandbox environment to ensure that no malware is present. ATP gives you a multilayer approach to ensure secure email.
Encryption is a must for any organizations that deal with personal health information or other sensitive data. This allows your users to easily encrypt a message before its sent to ensure that your business is not responsible for exposing your client’s sensitive data.
Archiving functionality gives you the ability to capture and secure all of your email correspondence and store it for a period of time. This allows you to meet any requirements needed for regulatory compliance.
Finally, SPAM filtering is an additional layer of protection that keeps your employees productive by eliminating the junk from their inbox.
When you put all of these solutions together you have a robust and secure email product that meets all of your needs for compliance and security.
