Companies are being targeted by increasingly sophisticated espionage, malware and spam attacks than ever before. According to a report released this week, targeted attacks have increased from one to two attacks per week in 2005 to 77 attacks per day in October 2010.

F-Secure says the email encryption included in F-Secure Messaging Security Gateway is simple to use and integrates 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. 

F-Secure Messaging Security Gateway is available as a physical or virtual appliance and includes the following core features:

• Anti-Spam Technology

• Anti-Virus Technology

• 256 bit AES encryption for email

• Microsoft Outlook integration

• Active Directory integration

According to a recent study commissioned this summer by Proofpoint, 35 percent of the companies surveyed had investigated a leak of confidential or proprietary information that had occurred via email in the past 12 months. Survey respondents estimate that as many as 20% of outbound email messages contains content that poses a legal, financial or regulatory risk. As a result, email encryption is becoming an increasingly necessary important tool in protecting business communications.
