Zecurion Inc has released its e-mail security solution, Zgate, to ensure that confidential information is not compromised through e-mail by working as a checkpoint, filtering outgoing e-mail messages. With the ability to control e-mails across the enterprise, the risk of stolen confidential data is minimized. The software also helps users investigate data breaches by placing e-mails in quarantine for manual processing or archiving for future review.

“Zgate gives control back to the IT department and piece of mind to the business by constantly monitoring information sent, thereby preventing disgruntled employees from stealing confidential information,” said Alexey Raevsky, CEO of Zecurion.

Administrators can set rules for handling e-mails and attachments. For example, a rule can be created to prohibit e-mails containing the word “confidential” from being sent to external e-mail addresses. The embedded linguistic analysis module checks for all forms of a given word, verifying the presence or absence of words in text messages or attachments. The module supports the English, Russian, German, French, and Italian languages.

The available text component and the internal structure of every file attachment, including compressed attachments, are analyzed to determine the attachment type for more than 70 of the most common applications. Once analysis is complete, messages can be sent, blocked, placed in quarantine for manual processing or archived. Messages placed in quarantine according to a predefined set of rules, are handled by an administrator who can then decide the appropriate action for the message, while also notifying users on the status of the e-mail.

The archive assists with the management of e-mails that pass through corporations’ servers.

  • All e-mails are automatically archived in a Microsoft SQL Server database.
  • Archive size is controlled by automatic deletion of messages over a certain age.
  • The archive is fully searchable and can be controlled by adjustable access rights.

Zgate is compatible with MS Windows 2000, XP, 2003 and 2008 Server, Vista, and all major mail servers operating via the SMTP protocol, including Microsoft Exchange Server, IBM Lotus Domino, Sendmail, Postfix.
