Email Encryption & Signing

Sending and receiving email over the Internet is like sending a postcard through the Postal Mail service - anyone can read it. Do you feel secure in your relationship with your current email messaging system? Are you sure it won't let you down when sending, receiving and storing highly critical, sensitive or private information?

The increasing significance of emails requires the use of safeguards that will ensure confidentiality and binding force. This can be achieved through the broad use of products that encrypt and digitally sign emails. An electronic signature provides assurance that the email originated from the stated sender and has notbeen alteredduring transmission. Encryption of information ensures that only the legitimate recipient can read the email.

Two major commercial methods available for securing email are S/MIME and PGP. These services typically include authentication of the originator and privacy for the data. They can also provide a signed receipt from the recipient. At the core of these technologies is public key technology; however the large-scale use of public keys requires a method of certifying that a given key belongs to a given user.

Strong authentication, such as with ID Control's PKI supporting USB Token , HandyID, MessageID, RiskID and KeystrokeID provide the secure email service MailID with proof of who you are. With ID Control USB Token and PKI based email you can even digitally sign email and encryptmessages, what means that your email will remain private and secret and only intended for the intended audience.

Security risks in email
Security is not an issue to be taken lightly. It's all about understanding the potential risk and assessing the level of security required to protect your organisation. If you are operating in an environment where critical, private or sensitive information is sent by email, a standard email system probably doesn't meet these requirements.
Whatever the level of risk your organisation is facing, ID Controldelivers the assurance and protection your messaging system and authentication needs. From first principles of who has the authority to send an email, to a fully encrypted implementation, we integrate these into your existing infrastructure and make them work for you.

Control of access and authorisation can provide an initial level of security and ensure that messages are only retrieved by the intended recipient. Digital signatures prove that the message was sent by whom it says it was and that it hasn't been tampered with. If the sender needs to know that a message has been received, MailID offered by ID Controlcan prove it. The ID Control USB Token and MessageID integrate with the MailID encryption tool and sophisticated PKI of your choice by which the USB token will store your private keys and digital certificates, enabling you to run a secure Public Key Infrastructure from within your organisation. Without even having a token you could use MessageID to securely access and authenticate to your proteced e-mail and strongly authenticate to your web-based e-mail system, such as Outlook Web Access.

With ID Control’s proven track record, the unmatched skills of our people and partners, we will implement a solution that fits your organisation perfectly. So whatever secrets you need to keep, you can be certain they're safe with us and verified by our excellent identification and access management partners and authentication solutions.

In addition to email encryption, decryption and signing ID Control can also enhance your email security with legal and compliant email archiving and backup.
