Archiving is a vital component of any secure email infrastructure, but if you can’t access archived emails because they were encrypted, you start to see your security needs negatively impacting your operational efficiency.
Vancouver, BC Canada (PRWEB) May 03, 2012
Email2 SCP Solutions, Inc., the leader in user-friendly SaaS email encryption and secure file transfers, announces the release of a secure API connection that simplifies the delivery of decrypted messages and attachments for archiving and secure storage. Now companies that operate in tightly regulated industries – for example, Health, Finance and Legal – can easily comply with security-related rules, ensuring that data is encrypted while in transit yet still fully accessible when archived. Email2 Secure API complements archiving whether on-premise or hosted and complements secure content collaboration and delivery into content management systems.
Regulations such as HIPAA, PSQIA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, FINRA Rule 8210 and others in the US and other countries specify strict requirements for the protection of confidential and personally identifiable information (PII). These regulations include clear guidelines for protecting such information during transportation and storage, as well as the need to access decrypted information during an audit. The Email2 Secure API decrypts all emails and attachments prior to archiving on any platform – while allowing messages to remain encrypted on the mail server (e.g. Microsoft Exchange). Email administrators and security staff can now access mail archives more quickly and easily, without having to decrypt messages on demand. Administrators can set the maximum file size for archived messages, as well as access a complete archiving activity log with the ability to retry entries that failed due to the third-party archiving tool.
“Archiving is a vital component of any secure email infrastructure,” says Email2 CEO Thierry LeVasseur. “But if you can’t access archived emails because they were encrypted, you start to see your security needs negatively impacting your operational efficiency. The release of this API is in keeping with our constant focus on reducing the workload and effort associated with encryption and secure file transfer. This Secure API allows our customers to ensure all of their messages are encrypted in transit and decrypted for archiving, eDiscovery or other content management purposes.”
