F-Secure Makes It Easy for Businesses to Encrypt Email, Roast Spam and Defeat Viruses

F-Secure Messaging Security Gateway Now Offers Powerful Email Encryption in Addition to Industry-Leading Spam Filtering and Anti-Virus Capabilities

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - October 28, 2010) -  F-Secure Messaging Security Gateway has already proven itself to be the most effective anti-spam appliance on the market, with a detection accuracy of 99.8 percent* and the lowest rate of false positives. The new version of the product now also offers powerful but easy-to-use 256 bit AES encryption for email, which protects sensitive data shared between business partners and makes it effortless to comply with corporate security policies.

Today companies are being targeted by more (and more sophisticated) espionage, malware and spam attacks than ever before. According to a recent survey**, more than a third of large enterprises investigated the exposure of confidential information via email in the past year. As a result, email encryption is now becoming an increasingly necessary tool in protecting business communications.

The email encryption included in F-Secure Messaging Security Gateway is simple to use and integrates smoothly with Microsoft Outlook. Encrypted email can be sent to anyone and the encryption does not require a separate server. Neither the sender nor the recipient of the email needs to install any software. The first email acts as a 'handshake' which establishes the use of encryption between two parties. After that, sending and reading encrypted mails is easy, and is guaranteed to make potential corporate spies weep.

F-Secure Messaging Security Gateway is available as a physical or virtual appliance. Both are equally easy to deploy, scale up conveniently as your business grows and provide extensive reporting capabilities.

Maria Nordgren, VP Corporate Business at F-Secure, says, "Our customers have described F-Secure Messaging Security Gateway as an 'install and forget' solution because it requires so little maintenance. It boosts productivity by minimizing the time employees spend dealing with spam email and helps IT personnel by reducing the workload on mail servers and decreasing support calls. End users can control their own email quarantine easily and effectively."
