This month we provide details on a product from Fusemail that delivers comprehensive and reliable email protection, a great tool to help with GDPR compliancy.
With email proving to be the first point of entry for many cyber attacks, data loss prevention and other security measures are crucial when it comes to data protection. A robust email security service is necessary to enhance protection and maximise compliance with GDPR.
The dangers that businesses could potentially expose themselves to through unsecured email accounts are often more than just compromised emails. Financial account information can be leaked, ransomware and viruses can infect networks, and reputational damage can occur from hacks being disclosed. This disclosure will become mandatory under the GDPR.
There are many solutions available on the market that can help protect businesses against these threats, however this month we are looking at a product from Fusemail called SecureSMART Suite.
Fusemail provides fully-integrated email security, continuity and archiving as a cloud-based solution. It protects your business from advanced email threats and accidental or malicious data leakage via email, no matter what device, which makes it a great solution to ensure your business complies with GDPR.
A key point to GDPR is ensuring that your data is secure. With SecureSMART Suite all emails messages and attachments are
scanned prior to their delivery to your network. During this scanning if a suspect or infected email message is detected,
SecureSMART will either delete the message immeadiately or the attachments can be deleted leaving the body intact.
A virus alert notice can be sent to the intended recipient or even the administrator to notify them.
SecureSMART Suite also provides spam filtering, it scans all incoming email and then assigns a spam score to it. If the score surpasses the predetermines threshold selected then the suspect email will either be sent to a web-based quarantine time for review and action or be marked as spam in the subject line of the email and then delivered to the recipient.
The beauty of SecureSMART is that you can pre-determine how you wish it to work for your business, in a centrally managed online portal.
Another great feature of SecureSMART Suite is that it provides good business continuity. Whilst this isn’t necessary specific to GDPR, business rely on email these days and an email outage can cause havoc upon your business.
The email continuity solution included within the SecureSMART suite will ensure that your company’s email stays operational. Users can log in to a browser-based portal from anywhere in the world and continue to send and receive emails. Whether they are in the office or on the road, users can continue to email from any device with an internet connection, even if your primary email systems are unavailable.
This also includes businesses that use Microsoft Office 365.
In the New Year Fusemail will be releasing a product which is currently named CypherSMART in the US which specifically looks at encrypting emails. This is particularly useful for businesses that send out confidential or personal information. When outbound filtering is enabled, Fusemail will scan all outbound messages, looking for specific keywords, or attachment types. At this point you can enforce for all outbound messages or emails based on custom policies that they are encrypted via TLS encryption. GDPR is very specific on ensuring that businesses implement solutions that can prevent data leakage via email of personal and /confidential information.
As mentioned, this product is not available in the UK, but is likely to be released in the new year as an additional paid for bolt on to the SecureSMART suite.
