OBERURSEL, Germany -- The growing threat to intellectual property, as well as existing data protection legislation, is putting companies and organizations under increasing pressure to protect confidential email communication and to back-up and manage the related data. With its new SafeGuard MailGateway release 5.3, Utimaco The Data Security Company offers a more comfortable and faster way to synchronize and back-up all keys, certificates, rules and other configuration data directly and automatically.
With this new version of SafeGuard MailGateway, clustering multiple email gateway systems to provide a high level of data availability has become more efficient. SafeGuard MailGateway 5.3 helps IT administrators back-up and manage email communication data by eliminating the need for a database for clustering and managing the exchange of keys on external and internal servers, certificates, rules and other configuration data automatically. Should one of the gateway systems fail, the other system automatically takes over and handles incoming and outgoing email traffic according to the policy configured. When the broken system is functioning again, it synchronizes itself automatically with the machine still running. Synchronization between the gateways is protected by standard TLS protocol. If a cluster is extended to three or more machines the first two gateways act as the central database for the entire cluster. As a result, high data availability is also warranted in a bigger cluster.
"With the new 5.3 release of SafeGuard MailGateway, Utimaco is now offering a simplified and easy installation to build multiple clusters meeting the high availability demands of our enterprise customers," said Joerg Horn, Head of Gateway Solutions at Utimaco. The cluster solution is very cost effective, because our clients just have to purchase the number of gateways they would like to install within the cluster.
