SecureEmail Pro for enterprise mail encryption

Comodo Group : 06 May, 2009  (New Product)
Protection available for sensitive e-mail communications using encryption with SecureEmail Pro from Comodo
Attorneys sometimes need to transmit vast amounts of sensitive data, rapidly. If they choose to do so by email, they must consider that email, though convenient, is not secure.

'It is conceivable that…courts may construe a failure to encrypt email as a failure to take the precautions necessary to protect privileged communication,' wrote Salvatore DeSantis and David Keller in the FDCC Quarterly.

Encryption software uses an algorithm to translate email messages and any attachments into unintelligible strings of characters. Only the intended recipient can translate them back into readable form.

Comodo SecureEmail Pro contains a new, patent-pending technology allowing email originators to send secure email messages using a one-time-use digital certificate. With the one-time-use certificate, recipients are authenticated and allowed to use the free online SecureEmail web service to decrypt and read their message.

To date, many email security approaches have been cumbersome and expensive, often requiring users to pre-exchange their public keys or message passwords. When time pressed, senders frequently chose to forego the added complexity. As a result, the email system and transmission proceeded without necessary safeguards.

Without those safeguards, though, the same ease and utility that allows internal users, partners and customers to effectively communicate also place confidential information in peril. To a moderately skilled person, inside the organization or out, unsecured email is easy to read, impersonate and alter.

Comodo SecureEmail provides the encryption necessary to protect email communications. Comodo SecureEmail, based upon widely adopted S/MIME standards, uses the same PKI technology that enables padlocked browser bars and SSL connections. Secure email encrypts the content (text and attachments) of originated messages so that they can only be read by the intended recipients.

SecureEmail Pro is an install-and-forget software application that can automatically encrypt and digitally sign all outgoing messages. Fully compatible with S/MIME-compatible email clients (e.g. Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail, Notes, Thunderbird, etc.), its built-in wizard allows users to easily download and automatically set up a Comodo email certificate. Users benefit from the security of automatically encrypting and digitally signing their email while the application handles difficult or hard to remember processes such as public key exchange and management. Network administrators looking for client-to-client email security can now consider Comodo end-to-end SecureEmail as a complement to gateway encryption applications.

Another important feature of Comodo Secure Email Pro is the ability to digitally 'sign' a document. The digital signature provides assurance that the document has not been altered in transit, and that it has been sent by the digital signature owner.

Comodo CA's Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) management systems enable law firms to administer and control their digital certificates under strict chain of custody requirements.
