Messaging security vendor Sigaba has announced an upgrade to its SigabaNet gateway software offering companies control over the e-mail messages that leave their organizations.
Available now, SigabaNet Version 4.3 includes a number of enhancements designed to help enterprises ensure the e-mail leaving their company is compliant with federal regulations or corporate guidelines, and keeps proprietary information such as intellectual property inside the company, says Nancy Chou, senior vice president of marketing with Sigaba.
The new version includes templates that contain tens of thousands of words, codes and phrases, according to company officials. By filtering outbound e-mail through these templates, the software scans for clues that an e-mail includes information that must be secured, such as data related to HIPAA regulations for the healthcare industry, officials say.
Once an outbound e-mail is flagged for securing, SigabaNet encrypts the message and separately authenticates users, Chou says.
SigabaNet similarly can secure outbound e-mails containing information related to regulations such as Gramm-Leach-Bliley and Sarbanes-Oxley. The product can also flag e-mails that may contain intellectual property or inappropriate content and block them before they leave the organization, officials say.
This release also allows companies to brand all customer-bound outgoing e-mails with the company's logo or other ensignia, officials say.
SigabaNet is the company's platform upon which its products -- Secure Email, Secure Statements and Secure Instant Messaging -- are based. SigabaNet includes gateway software that enforces preset policies, key services for managing encryption, and authentication services. Typical pricing for one of the products based on SigabaNet is US$23,000, officials say.
