Trustwave Intros Secure Email Gateway (SEG)
January 10, 2019
Secure Email Gateway (SEG) 8.2 is the latest iteration of its email security
platform that offers organizations a comprehensive solution for advanced email
security, extensive policy control and reporting. An industry first, Trustwave
SEG 8.2 supports Microsoft Azure Rights Management (Azure RMS), a fast-rising
enterprise cloud-based protection service that employs encryption, identity, and
authorization policies to help secure documents and email content traversing
across networks and devices.
◾Microsoft Azure (RMS) support – Trustwave SEG 8.2 is the market’s only secure email gateway that supports Azure RMS. As enterprises migrate to Azure RMS for enabling restricted access to documents and email both inside and outside the organization, protected content remains obfuscated, creating security blind spots. Trustwave SEG 8.2 decrypts Azure RMS content, scans for malicious purpose and then repackages that content, ensuring malware, malicious links and other nefarious threats stay out.
◾Leading-edge threat intelligence Trustwave SEG 8.2 is powered by near real-time threat intelligence derived from Trustwave SpiderLabs, an elite team of ethical hackers, incident responders and security researchers. As new intel on malware strains, malicious web links and evolving adversary tactics are identified, collected and tracked, it is pushed to Trustwave customers. The result is protection from rapidly spreading malware campaigns, targeted phishing attempts, blended threats including drive-by downloads, and a 99.9 percent rate of blocked spam with nearly zero false positives.i
◾Specialized Business Email Compromise engine Instead of relying on modified off-the-shelf technology, Trustwave SEG 8.2 incorporates a dedicated Business Email Compromise (BEC) fraud detection engine for identifying low volume highly-targeted spear-phishing attacks. This engine is regularly updated with the latest threat intelligence and maintained by Trustwave SpiderLabs, renowned for their pioneering research in the BEC field.
◾Superior data loss prevention capabilities – Trustwave SEG 8.2 analyzes, manages and controls outbound content to provide full data loss prevention level inspection on emails and attachments to effectively manage confidential data and help meet stringent regulatory requirements. Email encryption is incorporated and automatically triggered by data loss prevention content inspection rules to ensure secure point-to-point communications.
◾Cloud-based email archiving – Cloud-based email archiving provides Trustwave SEG 8.2 customers an option for a secure non-delete archive of emails to reduce security risks and greatly improve storage by removing older emails from mail servers. Email archiving not only delivers significant cost savings on storage but can help organizations achieve and maintain data compliance.
◾Powerful management controls – Email
administrators are challenged to keep pace as email naming standards change,
custom user routing is required and HR policies surrounding communications
become more complex. Trustwave SEG 8.2 provides flexibility in policy
configuration with an advanced policy engine that allows for custom rules based
on trigger points, content filtering and other requirements at a detailed level.
