Zecurion launched its email security solution, Zgate, providing companies with control over information sent via email.
Zgate ensures that confidential information is not compromised through email by working as a checkpoint, filtering outgoing email messages. With the ability to control emails across the enterprise, the risk of stolen confidential data is minimized. The software also facilitates the investigation into incidents of data breaches by placing emails in quarantine for manual processing or archiving for future review.
With Zgate, administrators have the ability to set rules for handling emails and attachments. For example, a rule could be created to prohibit emails containing the word “confidential” from being sent to external email addresses. The embedded linguistic analysis module checks for all forms of a given word, verifying the presence or absence of words in text messages or attachments. The module supports the English, Russian, German, French and Italian languages.
The available text component and the internal structure of every file attachment, including compressed attachments, are analyzed to determine the attachment type for more than 70 of the most common applications. Once analysis is complete, messages can be sent, blocked, placed in quarantine for manual processing or archived. Messages placed in quarantine according to a predefined set of rules, are handled by an administrator who can then decide the appropriate action for the message, while also notifying users on the status of the email.
The archive assists with the management of emails that pass through corporations’ servers. Zgate is compatible with MS Windows 2000, XP, 2003 and 2008 Server, Vista and all major mail servers operating via the SMTP protocol – Microsoft Exchange Server, IBM Lotus Domino, Sendmail, Postfix, etc.
