Email is a pillar of communication for enterprise organizations. As such, CIOs and CISOs must find a way to secure email without hindering business processes. S/MIME is an established solution for securing email but has traditionally been considered too difficult to deploy at scale. Without any solution in place, email is left unsecured.
With GaraSign, deploying and managing S/MIME in a large environment is simple. S/MIME keys are always secured and centrally managed, ensuring that the enterprise can decrypt emails to comply with relevant regulations.
Every organization relies heavily on email. That’s why email is a common attack vector for phishing and malware attacks. Additionally, email can be an avenue for accidental exposure of sensitive data.
S/MIME helps alleviate these issues with encryption and digital signatures, but S/MIME has traditionally been considered too complex to deploy in a large IT environment.
With GaraSign, S/MIME keys are never distributed out to end-users. Instead, the keys and certificates are always created, stored, and managed from a centralized HSM.
Using this approach, it’s easy to renew expiring certificates and revoke access to keys for users who leave the company.
Using GaraSign, enterprises can seamlessly deploy S/MIME throughout a large IT environment without end-user involvement. The client software is silently pushed and automatically installed on workstations. Through single sign-on (SSO) authentication, end-users are authenticated to GaraSign and are able to use S/MIME keys and certificates that were centrally created for them.
S/MIME encryption helps companies comply with data security regulations, such as GDPR and HIPPA. Since GaraSign keeps keys centrally managed, enterprises are always able to decrypt emails within the organization, ensuring compliance with e-discovery mandates.
