Who’s Minding the Data?
When millions of new “no-swipe” credit cards were issued earlier this year, security pundits had a field day pointing out the obvious security shortcomings of transmitting credit card holders’ account data over radio waves in unencrypted, clear text. Worse yet, an article in the New York Times described how easily this data could be “skimmed” through clothing and wallets, and later stored using relatively simple technology available at any computer outlet for less than $150.
And yet, of the estimated 84 billion emails being sent daily worldwide, the percentage that is appropriately protected with encryption technology is practically negligible.
Where’s a security pundit when you need one?
Emerging data privacy legislation is finally catching up to the pace of technical innovation, however. As organizations realize the operational efficiency of leveraging email to process mortgage applications, tax filing statements, or health records, a new degree of accountability is expected of any corporate or government entity that routinely handles or transmits legally protected, confidential data in a digitized format over the internet.
But email security solutions are notorious for being considered difficult to deploy and manage – This is no longer the case with the GlobalCerts SecureMail Gateway solution.
- Secure inbound and outbound email from viruses, spam, and unprotected critical content
- Simple, purpose-built appliance solution
- Failsafe content inspection mechanism for encrypting sensitive outbound emails
