MailFrontier Makes Email Compliance Easy

Identify, Monitor and Enforce Email Compliance Policies With MailFrontier's Comprehensive Compliance, Archiving and Encryption Offerings

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 13, 2006 -- RSA Conference -- MailFrontier™, the leader in email security, today announced the most comprehensive and easy-to-use email compliance solution including: MailFrontier Gateway™ 5.0, the latest version of its award-winning email security platform, the MailFrontier Compliance™ Module, new archiving options with the MailFrontier Archiving™ Module and AXS-One solution, and the MailFrontier™-PGP Universal™ Encryption Solution. This complete solution enables businesses to identify email that violates compliance policy, monitor and report on compliance status, and apply the appropriate enforcement options including encryption or archiving to support regulatory compliance regulations, such as HIPAA, GLBA and Sarbanes-Oxley, and corporate governance policies.

"The email security landscape increases in complexity every day -- spam is still a problem for many organizations, inbound threats continue to evolve, and increasingly digital assets and content need to be protected and retained within corporate networks. All of this makes management of email a lot of work for administrators," said Brian Burke, research manager for IDC's security products service. "Increasingly organizations, particularly those in the mid-enterprise market, are looking for one vendor to help secure their email systems. Today MailFrontier addresses this need with an intelligent and flexible email security and compliance solution to protect digital assets and enforce compliance."

The MailFrontier Compliance module provides a centralized compliance management interface that streamlines the identification and monitoring of confidential information, and provides robust policy enforcement options. Administrators can identify email using record matching, compliance dictionaries, and message component analysis. Compliance reports, the ability to blind copy emails to supervisory mailboxes, and notifications provide unobtrusive monitoring. Predefined policies can be used to select actions including enforcement encryption, archiving, and placement in an Approval Box.

The MailFrontier Archiving module provides for easy capture of all or only good messages locally or on a separate server and the ability to search and retrieve these messages. This module also facilitates policy-based archiving to MailFrontier archiving partner AXS-One, also announced today. The new MailFrontier-PGP Universal Encryption Solution, also announced today, expands MailFrontier's integrated encryption options with a hardened, easy-to-deploy appliance to protect confidential information.

"For the last couple of years, MailFrontier Gateway has effectively secured our email system and made our management tasks easy," adds Niall Pariag, senior network administrator for Riverside Health Care System. "Having a consolidated solution for both email security and compliance decreases risk, while easing the management burden. The MailFrontier Compliance module gives us the ability to manage outbound email in accordance with our specific corporate and regulatory compliance policies and processes, simply and effectively."

"Mid-sized organizations face similar compliance requirements as large corporations, but frequently they don't have the same resources to manage security and compliance. Even so, they can't delay in taking action," noted Anne Bonaparte, president and CEO, MailFrontier. "Email needs to be addressed in any comprehensive compliance strategy. MailFrontier Gateway 5.0, along with our comprehensive compliance offering, provides a complete platform for email security and compliance with the same ease-of-management our customers have come to expect from us for inbound email threat management protection."

MailFrontier Gateway 5.0 also includes new features that make everyday email security administration easier and more effective, including:

--  Email Auditing. View the status and complete audit trail of all in-
    and outbound email in real-time through a Web-based interface.
--  Email Traffic Manager. Prevent "bad" senders from sending junk email
    with enhanced quality of service features to control traffic connections.
--  Log Manager. Download and email logs directly from the user interface,
    making administrative tasks faster and simpler.
--  Enhanced Effectiveness. MailFrontier expands its authentication and
    reputation system with a new datacenter-based rapid deployment
    authentication system.
