PineApp Mail Secure Overview
CYBONET’s PineApp Mail Secure protects midsized to enterprise businesses’ networks from both targeted and non-targeted email-related threats. PineApp Mail Secure is equipped with cutting-edge perimeter security engines that focus on stopping the vast majority of threats by reviewing the credibility of their sources before they penetrate the customer’s network. CYBONET’s perimeter security approach helps save a substantial amount of system resources previously wasted on unnecessary content inspections. PineApp Mail Secure provides system administrators with the tools to handle both email-borne threats and a variety of email-related administrative tasks.
New Releases 5.1 and 5.1.1 – Enhanced Features
PineApp Mail Secure was originally released in 2006, and the email security solution has been upgraded and enhanced via new releases since that time in order to optimize its features and performance. Version 5.1 was released in September 2015 and the most recent version 5.1.1 in June 2016. These latest releases include a number of improved features and revisions which this document will explore.
Improved TLS Ciphers
The TLS ciphers were improved with version 5.1 of PineApp Mail Secure. This method uses a secure SMTP connection by which the email is protected while being sent from sender to recipient. The email content is encrypted in TLS using the latest ciphers.
Unlimited Policy Rules
Other email security solutions from leading vendors impose a limit to the number of policy rules which can be set up. For example, Fortinet’s Fortimail anti-spam solution allows 7,500 policy rules. PineApp Mail Secure does not limit the number of policy rules, which gives it an advantage over other solutions available on the market. We have a comprehensive policy which enables the unit administrator to create or design his/her policies without restrictions.
Policy rules can be set at the Global, Domain, Group and User level, and are unlimited:
1. Global Policies - affect the whole organization
2. Domains Policies - affect the defined domain only
3. Group Policies - affect the defined group members only
4. User Policies - affect specific users only
Anti-Virus Upgrade Options
PineApp Mail Secure provides complete protection from all known viruses, new age virus outbreaks (zero-hour detection), worms and Trojan-horses by using a multi-layered, anti-virus system. With PineApp Mail Secure version 5.1 and 5.1.1, all current and future Mail Secure customers can subscribe to a choice or combination of traditional anti-virus engines; Kaspersky and/or Avira AV depending on need. In this way, system administrators have several possible
options for Anti-Virus protection that they believe will best secure their organizations. All anti-virus layers are updated frequently by external dynamic databases.
PineApp Mail Secure has a macro engine which detects macros within email attachments and can quarantine these emails. This provides protection against zero-hour and malware infections to keep the organization’s SMTP communications secure.
