Safe-T Secure Managed File Transfer Enables Blackberry® Users to Securely Send Messages Outside the Blackberry Network

Share Article

SafeReply module enables Blackberry users to securely send messages and attachments to non-Blackberry users. Prevents large incoming attachments from clogging or freezing Blackberry devices.

Safe-T offers simple, secure and compliant file transfer for the enterprise.

Until now, secure communications were possible only if both the sender and the recipient were inside the Blackberry network. Our SafeRelay module solves this problem by securing all email messages and attachments through the Safe-T Enterprise Server.

eTouchware has announced that its Safe-T Secure Managed File Transfer Solution now enables BlackBerry® users to send secure messages outside of the Blackberry network.

The expanded support was enabled by eTouchware’s new SafeRelay module that allows global deployment of the Safe-T Secure Managed File Transfer Solution without any mail server plug-ins or changes to the configuration of users’ mail clients or PDAs. By deploying SafeRelay, mail servers and Blackberry devices can be used to securely send messages and attachments with encryption, one-time passwords, download limits, expiration dates and a variety of other security measures.

“Blackberry is prized by the enterprise for its secure communications,” says Amir Mizhar, CEO and Founder of eTouchware. “But until now, secure communications were possible only if both the sender and the recipient were inside the Blackberry network. Our SafeRelay module solves this problem by securing all email messages and attachments through the Safe-T Enterprise Server.”

In addition to extending Blackberry’s secure communications outside of the Blackberry network, SafeRelay enables Blackberry users to receive files of any size without clogging or freezing their Blackberry device. With Safe-T, only a link to file attachment is forwarded to a recipient and the actual attachment is safely stored on the corporate network behind the DMZ. Once a Blackberry user receives a message with a large attachment, he can download the large files from a laptop or desktop at his convenience. All messages and attachments can also be sent using AES encryption.

eTouchware is showing the Safe-T Secure File Management Transfer Solution at Booth #25 at the Gartner IT Security & Risk Management Summit at the Gaylord National in National Harbor, MD from June 21-23, 2010.

New Software Version 4.4 Features Live Package Recall

eTouchware has also announced general availability of Version 4.4 of its secure managed file transfer software. The new version includes a Live Package Recall feature that lets senders recall, edit, or change security settings of attachments after they have already been sent. Live Package Recall was developed at the request of a Safe-T customer that uses Safe-T to distribute mission-critical software updates to more than 10,000 customers. Additional features in the release include cross domain access control, multiple-use passwords and user names for frequent external users and more.
