Cyber-Ark expands into e-mail security
Cyber-Ark Software announced it will introduce three software options that protect e-mail: E-mail protection, Tunneling and Storage as part of Cyber-Ark's flagship product, PrivateArk Network Vault. The vault's new e-mail options deliver encryption on the desktop and an encrypted direct path for e-mails to travel between organizations. The options also make data packets undetectable to sniffers and provide users with secure access to their e-mail from anywhere in the world without ever accessing the internal network. The E-mail Protection option secures messages from end-to-end by creating a unique encryption key for each message then stores it within PrivateArk. A list of the recipients is also encrypted and then digitally signed by the unique key. The E-mail Tunneling option is a secure, virus-free path between networks. The tunneling agent acts as the SMTP server and the PrivateArk client and places the message in PrivateArk and a similar agent retrieves it and delivers it to the recipient. The E-mail Storage agent provides secure access to the corporate inbox without network access. Users may store e-mail in a private or shared vault within PrivateArk.
