Blind Carbon Copy, a standard email feature, is a security, ethical and corporate morale risk.
Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) May 31, 2012
BCC Detect!, has been launched as a free installable application in the Google Apps Market Place. Companies that use Google Apps can now block and/or monitor emails sent to previously undisclosed recipients. The process can be completely transparent to email users. Companies no longer need to risk damage that can be caused by hidden email communications.
The app offers two different strategies for dealing with BCC email. Companies can opt between the two or combine them.
The BCC Policy option works by blocking email sent to undeclared BCC recipients. The block can generate a reply message to the sender indicating that the email was blocked because of BCC usage. The plugin will apply to all emails sent regardless of the platform, ex. desktop, web or mobile.
The BCC Detect option allows BCC email to be delivered but also creates a silent copy that is sent to a pre-configured audit address. For example, if an internal email is sent to the CEO with an undisclosed copy (BCC) to an external address, a copy of that email can be sent to an audit address.
Alexis Panagides, CEO of mxHero:
“Companies have always had to deal with the fact that email allows users to send hidden copies to third parties. More than a security risk, one can question its ethics and potential impact on company morale.”
