“MailGate 3.6 answers the call from many of our public, regulated and government customers – governmental agencies, in particular, will benefit significantly from these enhancements,” said Mr. Stree Naidu, Regional Vice President Asia Pacific and Japan at Tumbleweed. “MailGate routinely gets exceptional scores in independent product reviews, particularly for our strong DLP policy engine, market-leading encryption, and superior interface. The rally cry for data loss prevention is everywhere, and Tumbleweed is one of the only vendors to successfully and effectively integrate DLP capabilities into our complete product suite. Within MailGate, these valuable outbound capabilities help protect sensitive information sent via email, which is arguably the most-used business communications channel today.”
“Since the launch of Mailgate 3.5 this time last year Australian organisations have become even more focused on how they protect data as it moves and controlling the perimeters in which information travels. We expect that both Federal and state government departments and the private sector will continue to react as positively to Mailgate 3.6 as they have to its earlier versions,” Naidu continued.
MailGate 3.6 provides customers with gateway inspection of S/MIME encrypted email for both inbound and outbound encrypted mail, thus helping prevent costly or dangerous data breaches. In addition, the added SMTP extension includes an authentication step that helps ensure the true identity of the sender is known.
MailGate DLP policies will drop any encrypted message that cannot be decrypted and reviewed for content scanning or return the message to the sender with instructions on how to send encrypted mail through MailGate. Additionally, MailGate 3.6 provides a comprehensive employee/user-based DLP “summary” report, providing insight into employee or user activity that could expose sensitive data.
Also integrated is the United States (US) NSA-approved elliptic curve cryptography technology, a move that provides one of the highest levels of security while streamlining future FIPS 140-2 and Suite B compliance renewals. FIPS 140-2 is the security requirement for cryptographic modules as defined by the National Institute of Standards for Technology (NIST) in the US. Suite B is the set of cryptographic algorithms recommended by the National Security Agency (NSA) in the US to secure classified and unclassified communications.
