Intermedia Launches Policy-Based Encrypted Email Solution to UK CustomersComprehensive Offering Helps Customers in Specific Industries Meet Security and Compliance Requirements (October 24, 2011)
LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 10/24/11 -- Intermedia, a global leader in cloud services and the largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, today launched policy-based Encrypted Email to its UK-based customers. Combined with its current user-level encryption product, the company now offers a comprehensive email encryption solution. Encrypted Email is available at a click to individual employees looking to secure a specific email -- as well as organizations looking to set and enforce standard encryption policies for email communication. With this solution, Intermedia is helping companies across various industries ensure their confidential communications are safe, secure and comply with legislation.
Organizations in certain industries have ethical, fiduciary, and regulatory duties to ensure that their clients' personal information remains confidential. Encrypted Email from Intermedia can help these companies comply with industry-specific privacy legislation.
Intermedia offers two choices in email encryption.
- Policy-based Encrypted Email: Easily encrypts emails based on company-wide rules and policies the customer sets up and manages -- all without disrupting day-to-day workflow. With outgoing content filtering, all email content and attachments are automatically scanned to detect whether the message warrants encryption before being sent. No additional software or plug-ins are required.
- User-level Encrypted Email: Provides end-to-end encryption and helps customers give certain employees or groups additional layers of encryption. Users compose email messages, add any attachments, click the "Secure" button on the plug-in toolbar, set their encryption password, and hit "send."
Both Encrypted Mail solutions are backed by a globally-recognized Certificate Authority, which ensures the SSL certificate is secure and trusted. All encrypted messages are digitally signed and can be validated to prove compliance as required. Intermedia Encrypted Mail encrypts any MS Office document, .PDF file, image file, and almost any other popular file format.
The launch of policy-based Encrypted Email ensures customers have a range of choices in their encryption solution, tailoring their decision to their internal, industry and geographical requirements.
"Security and compliance requirements are challenging for small- and mid-size businesses to address, particularly if they have to integrate services from different providers or install hardware," says Michael Gold, president, Intermedia. "Delivered as a cloud service, we provide business-class Microsoft Exchange email with security and compliance options that help companies more efficiently meet their requirements and keep their staff productive."
