Organization-Wide Protection A total compliance solution must provide defense for multiple levels of an organization’s communication network, from individual messages to users who send and receive them, to very systems that transfer and store critical information.
Messages Automated and policy-driven encryption protects customer data and ensures integrity of financial data when in transit. A complete encryption solution must be able to dynamically select most appropriate encryption solution based on recipient’s capabilities, including secure delivery to end users with unknown encryption capabilities, as is often case when using email to communicate with clients in healthcare and financial services.
Users End users who send non-compliant information via e-mail through unprotected gateways face very real threat of job termination, lawsuits and even prosecution, should their messages end up in wrong hands. Regardless of whether user’s intention is malicious or a simple mistake, an effective compliance solution will ensure that no damage is done.
Systems Complete compliance requires an e-mail specific firewall and intrusion prevention system. Gateway appliances designed to contribute to regulatory compliance must be able to detect and block hacker attacks directed at appliance itself, as well as at mail servers and other systems sitting “behind” it. Without this level of protection, vouching for integrity of information sent via e-mail is impossible.
Monitoring and Reporting Compliance is not just about detecting and controlling certain types of content. It also requires reporting and communication of compliance status. Compliance officers and administrators must be able to easily access data in order to:
- Analyze and improve organization’s compliance efforts
- Automatically deliver decision-making information to compliance officers in a timely manner
- Easily generate executive-level reports instantly
