Award-winning Rule18 email encryption is now available to financial, insurance and investment firms and their smartphone users

Best Mobile Solutions Product of 2011 protects financial, investment and insurance firms as well as their individual smartphone users

Boca Raton, Fla. – May 18, 2011 – The Rule18 Email Encryption solution developed by SECNAP Network Security and named Best Product of 2011 in the Mobile Solutions category last week is now available to organizations and individuals in the financial industry.

A growing majority of the world’s business is transacted in cyberspace — through electronic messaging on smartphones, tablets and mail-enabled mobile. Executives and professionals in the financial industry are helping to drive the smartphone explosion, and their demands for speed and convenience are often at odds with institutional requirements for privacy and security.

“To their credit, CSOs and CISOs at major financial institutions are laser-focused on optimizing technology, infrastructure and system configurations to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information,” said Michael Scheidell, SECNAP Network Security chief technology officer and developer of Rule18. ”Despite their best intentions, security defenses are paper-thin when smartphones are used to conduct financial business. Rule18 was developed specifically to strengthen smartphone security, and is now available to the financial industry at large.”

Rule18 email encryption complies with privacy regulations in the U.S. and abroad. In addition to being transparent to users regardless of the devices they prefer, Rule18 email encryption is extremely easy for Information Technology staffs to deploy. And the encryption product from SECNAP Network Security is unique in supporting the universe of smartphones as well as mobiles, tablets, laptops and desktops; PCs and Macs; and all popular email platforms.

“Users don’t need to change their normal mail behavior, so there’s no impact on IT Help Desk support,” said Scheidell. “Rule18 requires no client bandwidth or maintenance, whether deployed in the cloud or as a gateway appliance.”

Rule18 secures email headers, message text and attachments in the transport layer using 128 bit and 256 bit encryption, ensuring that data in motion is secure and private from Point A to Point Z. Financial institutions may choose to force encryption for all email, or use policy-based rules for more specific control. Either way, it’s transparent to the user and easy on the IT staff. Antivirus, antimalware and antispam protection are provided as standard features with Rule18 at no additional charge.

One of the most compelling benefits of Rule18 email encryption, according to Scheidell, is the advantage it provides in terms of customer security. “Financial institutions should be able to look their customers in the eye and assure them that all email communications involving personal or private information are totally secure, both on the Internet and their intranets,” said Scheidell. “Rule18 enables them to do that.”
