Offers Best of Breed Automated Email Classification, DLP and Encryption

WALTHAM, Mass., September 14, 2016 - Digital Guardian, a next generation data protection platform purpose built to stop data theft, today announced its integration with HPE SecureMail for automated email classification, data loss prevention, and encryption. The integrated solution supports both on-premise and cloud versions of HPE SecureMail, and helps enterprises simplify regulatory compliance and data protection deployments.

Despite the rise of text messaging and social media, email remains the primary method for business communication. Email is also a main channel for the leakage of sensitive data, whether through a sophisticated socially-engineered phishing attack, a malicious insider or simple human error. An integrated data loss prevention strategy with end-to-end email encryption is essential in preventing sensitive data from being exposed.

“We chose to integrate with HPE SecureMail because of their experience in protecting sensitive information for many of the largest financial services, insurance and healthcare organizations in the world,” said Doug Bailey, Chief Strategy Officer, Digital Guardian. “The combination of our shared experience and technology innovations will ensure customers get a best-in-class solution for their compliance and email security needs.”

Digital Guardian delivers a library of pre-defined, industry specific policies to help organizations easily discover, tag and classify sensitive data to comply with regulatory requirements. Once the sensitive data has been identified, HPE SecureMail protects the data in transit by encrypting and authenticating the email and contents to ensure the email recipient is the intended party.

“Organizations need an integrated and automated solution to protect email without slowing the speed of business, adding complexity or creating new security gaps,” said Albert Biketi, VP and GM of HPE Security – Data Security at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “Digital Guardian’s integration with HPE SecureMail addresses these challenges while offering corporations a best of breed approach to automated email classification, data loss prevention and encryption.”
