IPv6 Support From MailGate

Axway : 03 June, 2010  (New Product)
The MailGate security appliance from Axway now supports Internet Protocol version 6
Axway, the Business Interaction Networks company, has released the newest version of its MailGate security appliance, which boasts expanded security and compliance functionality and improved ease-of-use. New features of MailGate include enterprise multi-tenancy, support for Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) and additional capabilities for digital rights management (DRM). These features build upon MailGate's award-winning functionality to provide inbound threat protection, outbound data loss prevention, and archiving capabilities.

Email remains the most relied-upon tool for interacting with partners, customers and coworkers. Ferris Research asserts that 6 trillion emails are sent annually from business users, and that a typical business user will send and receive 600 emails per week.

"Email is the cornerstone of many business interactions, but it represents a serious security risk for organizations," said Dave Bennett, chief technology officer for Axway. "Preventing data loss is front and centre for any organization, and placing policies on outbound emails is a critical component of that effort. We continue to invest in data loss prevention (DLP) to reduce risk for our customers."

MailGate now includes enterprise multi-tenancy, which allows administrators to use one MailGate box but still segregate policy, user groups, DLP and management access for each business unit/department. Enterprise multi-tenancy lowers MailGate's total cost of ownership (TCO) by leveraging efficiencies and reducing deployment and maintenance costs.

An email, while it may lack the formality of a memo on company letterhead, can be just as legally binding as a traditional printed document. As such, Axway has made further enhancements to DRM functionality by adding a custom watermark to sensitive documents when it converts Microsoft® Office documents into password-protected PDF files. MailGate can also remove metadata and edit outbound messages to preserve corporate policy.

Support for the IPv6 protocol is increasingly essential for private sector and government entities, particularly since U.S. government agencies are mandated to start adopting the protocol and approximately half of European governments have mandated it as well. Axway MailGate is one of the first email security solutions to support IPv6.

Implementing MailGate enables organizations to:

* Eliminate a wide range of spam, viruses, botnets and other malicious email attacks, protecting the corporate network and greatly reducing email traffic.
* Ensure regulatory compliance with corporate, security and industry/government regulations. The intuitive GUI makes it easy to build role-based rules by senders, recipients, content, attachments, message headers and file size.
* Control accidental data leakage, as well as compliance lexicons for the financial services and healthcare industries. It includes checkbox content filtering for credit card, personal identification and banking/trading (CUSIP) numbers and DRM capabilities to preserve the integrity of email attachments.
* Manage traffic with IP reputation services.
