Dell has enhanced its cloud-based email security service, SonicWALL Hosted Email Security, to provide advanced threat protection and mobile-ready secure email exchange.
The company said SonicWALL Hosted Email Security offers protection from inbound and outbound threats with 99% accuracy at an affordable price.
Dell also claims that with the enhancement, the security solution will be capable of responding to new threats dynamically, while reducing complexity and ongoing administration cost.
Advanced compliance scanning, management and email encryption has been added to SonicWALL, which will prevent data leaks and regulatory violations.
The Hosted Email Security will now prompt users with a notification email which will carry instructions to log in to a secure portal and to read or download email in a secure manner.
Since it is a cloud-based service, users will be able to access encrypted email even from their mobile devices.
The enhancement has also brought policy configuration at the department level, which will facilitate scanning of outbound email content and attachments for sensitive data.
In order to reduce spoofed mail and spam from attacking the systems, Dell has added Domain-based Message Authentication and Reporting and Conformance to the solution to the SonicWALL Hosted Email Security.
Dell Network Security executive director Patrick Sweeney said: "Year over year, we’ve seen the rise of business and government regulatory requirements for email encryption.
"Customers need to ensure email compliance and must protect confidential information. Our new Dell SonicWALL Encryption Service for Hosted Email Security provides an easy-to-use, affordable option to meet compliance requirements that easily integrates with existing email infrastructure, and minimises upfront deployment time and costs, as well as ongoing administration expenses."
