The current situation
Today we are immersed in a digital environment where the usability of electronic communications plays a key role. The need to secure the channels that carry communications through the TCP/IP network is also of utmost importance.
Email is, without a doubt, one of these communication channels. In a short span of time, it has become a critical service for companies, public institutions and individuals alike.
The security and authenticity of information are the two main areas targeted by hackers and other cyber criminals.
Faced with the need to maintain the availability of email and protect its content against third parties, users are demanding guarantees on the authenticity and non-alteration of their email content.
The failure to protect emails is one of the main security breaches used by hackers today to steal information. It is also one of the main risks of identity theft through techniques such as phishing.
Cryptosec Mail is a digital signature and/or encryption system for emails, designed to reduce the risks posed by phishing and achieve total confidentiality of email content (coding/encryption).
The Cryptosec Mail solution incorporates a Cryptosec PCI HSM, which can be certified for either FIPS 140 Level 3 or for Common Criteria EAL 4+ (with ALC_FLR.1 augmentation).
