Marshal8e6 Releases Comprehensive Content Filtering for Internal Email

MailMarshal Exchange protects against malware and data leakage, enforces security policies on all email traffic
ORANGE, Calif. and BASINGSTOKE, UK (November 19, 2008) - The new secure email and Web gateway security provider, Marshal8e6, has launched its internal email filtering solution for Microsoft(r) Exchange(tm) 2003 and 2007. MailMarshal Exchange provides content inspection of all email traffic traversing a company's Microsoft Exchange Server to stop internal circulation of inappropriate content, malware and confidential information. Industry regulations, including the Data Protection Act, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), include requirements for controlling the distribution of information. This corporate governance includes the management of email communication between employees.

Ed Macnair, Chief Strategy Officer of Marshal8e6 and former CEO of Marshal said, "This announcement shows that Marshal8e6 is on track to be the leader in the Secure Internet Gateway market. 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."

MailMarshal Exchange was specifically developed to enforce policy and compliance on all email, including email sent between employees. It safeguards a company against malware, data leakage and hostile work environments. It 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.

"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. "MailMarshal Exchange is the perfect solution to protect the confidentiality of internal emails. We've all had that experience of inadvertently emailing the wrong person. MailMarshal Exchange gives employees the confidence to email colleagues, safe in the knowledge that they are not flouting policy or risking a security breach."

MailMarshal Exchange integrates with Active Directory to enable user groups to be defined, allowing specified individuals to receive email that would be restricted from other departments for legal or ethical reasons. MailMarshal Exchange can be used in conjunction with MailMarshal SMTP or other email gateway products used to secure against spam and malware. It scales in proportion to the number of Exchange servers used within an organization.

Marshal8e6 is the 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.
