RSA 2008: Entrust secure e-mail solution now offers encrypted PDF capabilities

Organizations deploying e-mail encryption continue to face the challenge of delivering secure messages to a broad audience. While some recipients are comfortable using an organization’s chosen security application to view encrypted messages, most end-users do not have this ability and organizations are forced to deploy Web-based interfaces. To enable more efficient communication Entrust will offer integrated secure delivery using the Adobe PDF in addition to Web and standards-based delivery — via the Entrust Entelligence Messaging Server.

Organizations deploying e-mail encryption continue to face the challenge of delivering secure messages to a broad audience. While some recipients are comfortable using an organization’s chosen security application to view encrypted messages, most end-users do not have this ability and organizations are forced to deploy Web-based interfaces. To enable more efficient communication Entrust will offer integrated secure delivery using the Adobe PDF in addition to Web and standards-based delivery — via the Entrust Entelligence Messaging Server.

Already supporting PGP, S/MIME and Webmail Pull and Web Mail push delivery methods, Entrust Entelligence Messaging Server’s new secure PDF delivery capability provides end-users with easy-to-understand secure communication with financial institutions, enterprises, vendors and partners. A fully integrated feature, reading encrypted messages now only requires a PDF reader, which comes standard on the majority of today’s personal computers and laptops. Encryption is achieved through strong password-based encryption standards. Users can receive encrypted messages complete with subject line, body and, unique to the Entrust Entelligence Messaging Server, can reply to their secure message with an encrypted message.

Recipients can read encrypted messages offline and the document remains secure wherever it is sent, stored or copied. Encrypted e-mails do not get blocked by spam filters since HTML or Java script files are not included in the message — a concern with alternative encryption methods. This feature was implemented as a result of extensive focus-group testing and customer feedback.
