EdgeWave Email Encryption

Cost-effective solution that protects your organization

EdgeWave Email EncryptionEdgeWave Email encryption assures the secure delivery of email to your customers, vendors, partners and other individuals, with next-generation technology that eliminates the cost and complexity associated with many traditional encryption services. As a completely hosted service, there is no hardware or software to implement and encryption can be easily enabled on a per user basis or as part of an automated routing policy. In addition, because it is integrated into our Hosted Email Security and Data Loss Protection services, your outgoing email is inspected for malware, viruses, inappropriate content, compliance breaches and violations of your corporate acceptable use policy (AUP) – a more multi-layered defense than a solo encryption service can offer. As part of our comprehensive suite of secure messaging solutions, EdgeWave Encryption Service is the most cost-effective way to assure the confidentiality and secure delivery of private and sensitive communications leaving your network.

Overview:

Regulatory legislation, legal requirements and your organization's internal policies make secure email delivery more important than ever. EdgeWave Encryption Service provides a cost-effective solution that protects your organization from financial fines, brand reputation damage and other negative consequences that can occur when unsecured proprietary or sensitive email leaves your organization.

Highlights

  • Encryption can be enabled by users or automatically triggered per administrator-defined rules
  • Assures the secure delivery of messages
  • Supports regulatory compliance, AUP and your peace-of-mind by protecting confidentiality and privacy
  • Completely hosted service with easy setup and management and low TCO
  • Is integrated with Email Security and DLP for multi-layered protection against emerging threats and data loss
  • Supports all email gateways
  • Requires no software because the recipient interacts with messages via secure webmail interface
  • Combines with EdgeWave TLS encryption for comprehensive protection

TLS Server-to-Server Encryption
TLS is a delivery method that encrypts communications between two email servers by first having each mail server authenticate to the other, making it harder to send spoofed email. Then, the contents of the emails sent between the two servers are encrypted, protecting them while in transit. The encryption itself remains totally transparent to both sender and recipient.

Park and Pull Encryption Services
EdgeWave Encryption Service includes park and pull technology designed to provide secure communication between the sender and the recipient of messages, even individuals outside and unrelated to your organization. All emails using encryption can be routed based on a variety of rules leveraging EdgeWave's email filtering technology. Park and pull encryption is enhanced by EdgeWave DLP so that encryption can be triggered by DLP violations. Unlike end-to-end encryption, the park and pull technique does not require the installation of any software by the sender, recipient or on the email hosts of either. Nor does it require an encryption key to deliver the email.

How Park and Pull Encryption Works

  1. The message originator sends an email that is designated to be encrypted whether automatic per rules or manual per user.
  2. Encrypted sent messages are stored on EdgeWave's secured encrypted message portal
  3. A notification message is sent to all recipients containing a link that takes the recipient to the secured Web page where the message can be viewed and other actions taken.
  4. Recipients are identified by registering just once, after which they have a secured portal and can take action to read, reply, delete, forward, create, recall, save or print.

Reporting
The reporting feature includes message tracking and audit trail, allowing you to manage and troubleshoot. These reports also support compliance with regulatory requirements by providing evidentiary data if legal issues should arise.

Once an email is routed for encryption, EdgeWave stores it securely in our Encryption Portal and notifies the recipient, who then registers and retrieves the email for further action. Unlike end-to-end encryption, the park and pull technique does not require the installation of any software by the sender, recipient or on the email hosts of either. Nor does it require an encryption key to deliver the email. Security is assured by holding the email messages in a protected webmail interface until the recipient accesses them.
