Symantec™ Encryption Solutions for Email Powered by PGP™ Technology

The Challenge with Email

Employees rely on email to increase productivity through collaboration. A constant concern for organizations is whether users are taking the necessary precautions to protect sensitive information such as health records, financial information, or strategy documents over email. According to Osterman Research, 74 percent of an organization’s intellectual property resides in an email or attachment. IT is faced with the challenge of protecting sensitive data whether it is in motion, in use, or at rest. By utilizing Symantec Desktop, Gateway, and Mobile Email Encryption, your sensitive data can be protected wherever it goes and wherever it resides – even in the cloud.

Flexible Delivery Options to Match Your Needs

Not every organization is the same, and different departments may require different levels of security. Centralized management allows administrators to organize keys and policies per user or group from a single web-based console and synch these with Active Directory. Seamless integration with existing standardsbased email encryption solutions such as OpenPGP and S/MIME continue to simplify administrative headaches.

Finally, when recipients don’t have their own email encryption solutions, Gateway Email Encryption provides options such as sending via protected PDF or enabling users to have a protected dialog via secure web portal.

The Power of Symantec Integrated Solutions

By combining the power of Symantec Data Loss Prevention with Symantec’s email encryption solutions, organizations are able to provide an additional layer of security when it comes to compliance and privacy regulations. Outbound email messages are compared against DLP policies and, if it’s discovered that an outbound message contains sensitive data, messages can be diverted to Gateway Email Encryption before being sent out. DLP also provides a detailed audit trail for compliance auditing purposes.

By combining Gateway Email Encryption with Symantec Messaging Gateway, users can combine the power of PGP™ encryption with Symantec’s leading anti-virus, malware, and spam filtering.
