Trend Micro expands email encryption solution portfolio
New Trend Micro Email Encryption Gateway 5.0 helps medium and large businesses encrypt email communication on the Internet gateway. It uses Identity-Based Encryption (IBE) in conjunction with in-the-cloud encryption key management to avoid the legacy burdens of pre-registration, key management and the administration that plagued PKI technology.
Trend Micro Email Encryption Gateway integrates with Trend Micro gateway messaging security solutions such as Trend Micro InterScan Messaging Security Suite 7.0 or InterScan Messaging Security Virtual Appliance 7.0 to provide a comprehensive content security and encryption solution. It also interoperates with solutions from other gateway email security vendors by providing comprehensive email encryption and decryption services at the Internet gateway.
Based on the technology acquired with the purchase of Identum in January 2008, Trend Micro’s email encryption solution portfolio can now provide email encryption services at a variety of locations including:
- Trend Micro Email Encryption Gateway 5.0 for gateway email encryption
- Trend Micro Email Encryption Client 5.0 for desktop-to-desktop email encryption
- Email Encryption for InterScan Hosted Messaging Security for hosted email encryption
Trend Micro Email Encryption Gateway 5.0 runs on VMWare’s ESX 3.x and ESXi 3.x environments. Encrypted email can be decrypted using the Trend Micro Email Encryption Client, or recipients can use an optional browser-based reader to view encrypted email without installing software.
Trend Micro Email Encryption Gateway 5.0 starts at $US60 per year per user with standard volume discounts applying. Trend Micro Email Encryption Gateway is scheduled to be available on December 1, 2008.
