Inappropriate content, malware and confidential information are all targeted by the new MailMarshal Exchange product, which inspects all traffic crossing a company’s Microsoft Exchange Server.
“Marshal8e6 is the only independent software company capable of securing all forms of Internet-based communication streams -- including internal corporate emails, Internet-based email services, websites and Instant Messaging, said chief strategy officer and former CEO of Marshal Ed Macnair.
“This announcement shows that Marshal8e6 is on track to be the leader in the Secure Internet Gateway market,” said Macnair.
MailMarshal Exchange safeguards a company against malware, data leakage and can prevent confidential information such as credit card and social security numbers, payroll or medical information from being leaked between employees.
MailMarshal Exchange also blocks the distribution of illegal, offensive, pornographic or harassing content via company email.
Macnair quoted a recent survey which showed that workplace bullying and discrimination costs Australian businesses between $6bn and $13bn a year in lost productivity.
He further said that the Australian Human Rights Commission found in 2008 that 22 per cent of women and 5 per cent of men experienced sexual harassment in the workplace.
“Increasingly, companies are asking for solutions that enforce ethical walls to comply with corporate and regulatory legislation such as SEC and HIPAA. For example, public companies need to prevent insider information from leaking and influencing trades,” said Bradley Anstis, director of Technology Strategy at Marshal8e6.
The product is currently available in Australia with Marshal’s resellers.
Marshal8e6 is a new company created following the recent merger of Marshal, a UK-based vendor of email content filtering and Web security products, and 8e6 Technologies a US-based vendor of Web filtering appliances.
