WatchGuard XCS SecureMail Email Encryption
Instant-on security for confidential, regulated and business-prudent communications.
While en route from a sender to a recipient, an email message may pass through several waypoints across the world before reaching its intended destination. Each of those waypoint networks pass along the message in-the-clear, meaning your email, including attachments, is available for anyone to read and steal, much like mailing a postcard. A single weak link along this path, a criminal port sniffing your network, and many other situations may compromise the confidential information of a message and can potentially result in leakage and exposure of sensitive information. The consequences of this happening can be detrimental, including brand erosion, loss of customer confidence, financial repercussions, legal penalties, regulatory violations and fines, and public embarrassment.
What Makes SecureMail Different?
The WatchGuard XCS SecureMail Email Encryption solution is tightly integrated into WatchGuard XCS email security physical appliances and WatchGuard XCSv email security virtual appliances to enable instant-on security for confidential, regulated and business-prudent communications. WatchGuard XCS SecureMail Email Encryption provides an easy-to-use, secure and cost-effective encryption solution for enterprises that do not want the burdens and costs associated with traditional encryption deployments and administration, but require message security for privacy and compliance.
The WatchGuard XCS SecureMail Email Encryption solution does not use clients or certificates so it does not require a pre-exchange of credentials, nor the burdens of older message encryption techniques such as Certificate Authorities, Open PGP, S/MIME and other client and certificate based systems that are costly and do not scale.
