Exchange Messaging Server Enhanced Protection with SSL Support
Hong Kong, November 9, 2001 – As the market demand for software
security continues to rise, messaging solutions pioneer, International
Messaging Associates (IMA), announces the release of its latest
product, the Internet Exchange Messaging Server (IEMS) 5.1. This
messaging solution is designed to address the security and reliability
needs of a wider range of customers through its Secure Sockets Layer
(SSL) support for IMAP and POP3.
The use of SSL in IMAP and POP3 assures users that all information
is encrypted during transit, making it difficult for intruders to
eavesdrop on the message content. This guarantees users with a more
secure access for message store and protection for their password.
“By adding SSL support in IEMS 5.1, IMA has raised the bar for
protecting e-mail against electronic sniffers or hackers who want
to tamper or alter sensitive information while in transit,” says
Tim Kehres, IMA president. “This has been IMA’s response to the
rising demand of our growing number of clients who want to maintain
email privacy and confidentiality.”
Protected communications in IEMS 5.1 relies on secret-key cryptography
(SKC) for privacy and public-key cryptography (PKC) for key exchange
and authentication. The PKC facilitates encryption and decryption,
tamper detection and nonrepudiation.
Cryptography, which is widely used to preserve high degree of corporate
privacy and security, also includes the use of a digital certificate.
The latter proves the authenticity of a server’s certificate and
public ID, which should have been issued by a certificate authority
(CA) listed in the client’s list of trusted CAs.
SSL support is just one of the many features of IEMS 5.1 that address
security issues. Other features include an attachment filter module
that scans e-mail attachments for viruses, as well as its anti-spam
and anti-virus engines, normally not available in most e-mail solutions.
IEMS 5.1 further enhances its capabilities through its capacity
to be run in a distributed environment, efficiently spreading computing
resources across several networked machines. It can also run on
Linux and Windows operating system.
For a limited time only until November 30, 2001, 2000 copies of
15 user licenses will be available to users for FREE. You may register
