"Organizations seek more and more options that allow them to securely and confidently communicate with their customers, vendors, investors and various third parties," said Entrust Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Conner. "The universal understanding of the portable document format makes secure PDF delivery an extremely attractive option for organizations that require straightforward encrypted communication with external parties, particularly as a component of a comprehensive layered security strategy."
Already supporting PGP, S/MIME and Webmail Pull and Web Mail push delivery methods, Entrust Entelligence Messaging Server’s new secure PDF delivery capability provides end-users with easy-to-understand secure communication with financial institutions, enterprises, vendors and partners. A fully integrated feature, reading encrypted messages now only requires a PDF reader, which comes standard on the majority of today’s personal computers and laptops. Encryption is achieved through strong password-based encryption standards. Users can receive encrypted messages complete with subject line, body and, unique to the Entrust Entelligence Messaging Server, can reply to their secure message with an encrypted message.
Recipients can read encrypted messages offline and the document remains secure wherever it is sent, stored or copied. Encrypted e-mails do not get blocked by spam filters since HTML or Java script files are not included in the message — a concern with alternative encryption methods. This feature was implemented as a result of extensive focus-group testing and customer feedback.
A component of a layered security model, Entrust Entelligence Messaging Server is an e-mail encryption solution that makes it easier to communicate securely with external business partners, customers and clients. The solution is shipped as a hardware appliance and is easy to deploy and maintain for organizations that communicate sensitive or regulated information — both inside and outside their organization.
Entrust Entelligence Messaging Server is part of an overall encryption and information protection platform found under the Entrust Entelligence portfolio, which includes full disk encryption, network folder encryption, file encryption, end-to-end e-mail encryption and gateway encryption products.
