Cisco Ironport Email Encryption

cisco-logoCisco is recognized as a leading technology provider for email and web security, and the Cisco Ironport Email Encryption solution is no exception. FiLink uses the Cisco Ironport C-Series Email Security platform, as well as the RSA Data Loss Prevention Engine, to scan and encrypt emails with Cisco’s PXE technology.

Deploy Easy-to-Use Email Encryption

Cisco IronPort Email Encryption is a send-to-anyone secure message technology built on the Cisco Ironport C-Series.

  • Meet compliance requirements for email encryption with HIPAA, SOX, GLBA and State Laws
  • Deliver Powerful Email Control Features like notifications and policy-based routing
  • Secure, Managed Cloud Infrastructure


Flexible Sender Encryption

The sender can initiate encryption through a wide variety of methods, including:

  • Installing an email client plug-in that can encrypt a message with the click of a button
  • Marking the message as urgent
  • Using a code word (such as “encrypt”) in the subject line.

Emails can also be encrypted automatically through administrator-configured policies. FiLink includes out-of-the-box compliance policies for HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, Finance, and Federal, State and International Laws.

Support for All Email Platforms

Messages encrypted using Cisco IronPort Email Encryption can be opened by any AOL, Yahoo!, or Hotmail user. They can also be opened by traditional enterprise email clients such as Outlook, Lotus Notes, and GroupWise.

Easy Setup and Administration

With Cisco IronPort Email Encryption, email administrators can implement message-level encryption in two easy steps and be up and running in minutes. Cisco transparently manages key creation, distribution, and retention, as well as recipient user management.

Flexible Key Management

Cisco takes the burden out of encryption key management through a hosted key management service. The Cisco Registered Envelope Service:

  • Provides highly secure and transparent management of encryption key creation, distribution, and retention
  • Operates from multiple Cisco data centers
  • Has high availability and 10-year key retention

If an organization cannot permit a hosted key service, Cisco provides the flexibility of on-premises key management with the Cisco IronPort Encryption Appliance.

Total Email Control

Unlike other email encryption solutions, with Cisco IronPort Email Encryption, senders remain in full control of their content, even after it has been sent. With Cisco IronPort Email Encryption, senders always have the option to lock the message, so they do not have to worry about:

  • Mistyped recipient addresses
  • Mistakes in content
  • Time-sensitive messages

Senders can also add their logo to the Cisco Registered Envelope Service page, customize message notification text, and includes logos in their notification messages.

Regulatory Compliance

Cisco IronPort Email Encryption satisfies encryption regulatory requirements without being a burden on the senders, recipients, or email administrators. These requirements include state privacy regulations and European directives, as well as those of:

  • PCI
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX)
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)

Ease of use combined with powerful features means that now IT can offer encryption as a service, not a mandate.
