E-Mail Essentials

E-Mail Filtering, Security and Business Continuity

E-Mail Essentials is a transparent network service designed to secure your e-mail before it can damage your servers and workstations. It enforces your company policies and government compliance requirements and provides reporting, business continuity and even email access and collaboration when your Internet access or mail server is unavailable.

E-Mail Essentials is a security network that processes e-mail and only delivers the e-mail you want to read down to your server. Every incoming and outgoing message is scanned for dangerous content. The security policies you define are applied to it, along with any archiving or government compliance requirements.

Message Delivery
E-Mail Essentials operates as a distributed cloud-based service, with decentralized administration, policy enforcement and archive with business continuity. What that means is that our network, spanning 2400 servers and 40 data centers with over 100 Gbit of Internet bandwidth, has no single point of failure and can adapt to network outages, distributed denials of attack, mail floods and more.

Security Enforcement
Once your e-mail is received by E-Mail Essentials, the policy server is contacted and asked what to do with the e-mail. Should we scan it for viruses? If so, how are infected messages handled? What about disinfected messages? With over a thousand possible settings and policy configurations established in advance by your company, this is the core of our service.

Business Continuity and LiveArchive
One of the most critical components of an external mail security solution is its reliability. You need something that will be far more reliable than your own mail infrastructure so, if you ever experience an outage, you have that extra layer of mail redundancy. E-Mail Essentials meets and exceeds that requirement through our LiveArchive business continuity service. It is a complete standalone e-mail system with your users, your corporate identity and your passwords, running on a highly reliable, geo-redundant webmail system.

On-Demand Encryption
An on-demand Encryption service is included with DatalystE-Mail Essentials. Users are able to selectively encrypt a message simply by entering [ENCRYPT] (all caps and with the brackets) in the subject line of an e-mail. Optionally, your site can be setup with global recipients and domains so that e-mails are encrypted automatically. This ensures that any private information will be sent securely and enables businesses to quickly comply with SOX, HIPAA, SEC and local government requirements for personal information encryption.
