How EdgeWave made TopTenReviews.com
Email encryption is a vital part of most business’ Internet security plans. With hacking attacks and corporate espionage both on the rise, businesses need to protect emails from being intercepted by unauthorized persons. EdgeWave is one of the best email encryption and Internet security programs out there, which is why it made the list at TopTenReviews.com.
Puts Security in the Hands of Administrators
Top Ten Reviews applauded EdgeWave’s decision to give administrators complete control over email security. While some Internet security programs force senders to take responsibility for making sure email is secure, EdgeWave allows administrators the ability to monitor incoming and outgoing messages for security risks. Administrators can set up the software to flag emails for whatever concerns they wish, including the presence of sensitive personal information such as credit card numbers or proprietary information such as trade secrets. Once EdgeWave is set up according to company policy, it will automatically detect and encrypt or block emails that contain information of concern, ensuring employees no longer have to worry about remembering to encrypt emails prior to sending.
Easy to Use
Email encryption may sound complicated, but EdgeWave is easy for both administrators and email recipients to use.
Administrators can easily implement the software; once emails are set up to route through the SMTP software, it’s merely a matter of configuring EdgeWave to meet the company’s specifications. The software comes with a variety of features to make this process easier for administrators, including customizable word lists designed for the financial and medical industries to comply with privacy policies, and these lists can be added to in order to bring other types of companies into compliance with individual privacy and security policies.
Email recipients also find the software easy to use. When a sender receives an encrypted email, he or she merely has to sign in to a Web portal to read and respond to the email.
EdgeWave features cutting edge technology that allows administrators to easily flag emails that contain objectionable content and decide what to do about that content. When administrators configure EdgeWave, they tell it what to do when it encounters certain content. EdgeWave can either quarantine, ignore, encrypt or block each type of objectionable content. Administrators do not have to review flagged emails on a case-by-case basis; once the software is configured, it automatically does what it has been configured to do. As TopTenReviews notes, “Once everything is set up, encryption is all hands free, and there are no keys to manage.”
Not only does EdgeWave monitor emails for potential security breaches and automatically respond to problematic content, but it also generates reports based on the results of its monitoring. All emails sent and received on an EdgeWave-based system are archived within the software; in addition, EdgeWave can be configured to automatically generate reports such as reports of flags, number of encrypted emails or usernames that generated flagged emails. This allows administrators to easily produce any paperwork needed in order to comply with company policies or respond to litigation.
Internet security is of primary importance to businesses. Not only do they need to protect themselves from cyber-attacks and corporate espionage, but they must comply with a variety of regulations in order to avoid legal problems and stay in business. EdgeWave allows administrators to keep email secure without interfering with the smooth running of day-to-day operations.
