PGP Updates Enterprise Encryption Server

PGP's server-based Universal 1.2 moves the chore of encrypting mail and attachments off the desktop, and allows administrators to set and enforce both internal security policies -- such as what is encrypted and how -- as well as those for external communications with partners, suppliers, and customers.

The update adds support for Lotus Notes clients running off a Domino server environment, and lets IT extend Notes users' encryption to both S/MIME and PGP users outside the firewall. It also now integrates with Symantec's enterprise-grade anti-virus engine to scan messages processed by the encryption server. Outbound messages are scanned before they're encrypted, while inbound mail is scanned after it's been decrypted.

Customers can purchase annual subscription licenses of Symantec's scanning engine as a bundle with Universal 1.2, said PGP.

Other new features in 1.2 include compatibility between BlackBerry Enterprise Server and Universal so that companies can automatically encrypt and decrypt e-mail for BlackBerry users, as well as enforce security polices set within Universal.
