Fortify Your Defenses With Cloud-based E-mail Security
With e-mail the primary mode of business communication, security is crucial to keeping productivity high and risks low. Cybercriminals are well familiar with the vulnerabilities, which is why they target e-mail to damage, destroy or steal corporate data. Employees, unaware or neglectful of data privacy policies, also put sensitive data in jeopardy.
The cloud-based AT&T Secure E-mail Gateway can help by screening inbound e-mail for malicious attacks, filtering outbound e-mail for privacy breaches, providing e-mail encryption and archiving e-mail data to comply with regulations – and all with the simplicity and per-user pricing of the cloud.
AT&T Secure E-mail Gateway: Help protect data with an e-mail security solution
Phishing, or trying to get sensitive information from unsuspecting targets, is a popular tool in the cybercriminal’s arsenal. Employees clicking on a link in an e-mail can unwittingly install malicious software, permitting unauthorized network access.
AT&T Secure E-mail Gateway helps protect e-mail data and boost business continuity as it:
- Scans for bots, worms, phishing scams and other malware before it reaches your network
- Enables end users to send and receive e-mails via a web-based interface, if your mail server is down
Help keep private data private with e-mail filtering
Simplify e-mail and data encryption.
Simply hitting the "send" key can threaten the privacy of corporate and customer data. It can also put your reputation at risk if botnets lurking on your network gain control, sending tens of thousands of spam messages from your web address.
E-mail filtering with AT&T Secure E-mail Gateway can strengthen data leakage protection to help you:
- Set and manage your own customized e-mail security policies
- Screen and provide e-mail encryption for outbound e-mail
- Prevent inappropriate content from leaving your network
- Enhance protection against potential liabilities
- Comply with government or industry regulations
- Protect your good name
E-mail archiving: Simplify storage and compliance with an e-mail archiving solution
Whether or not you need to meet government or industry regulations for data retention, it's good business practice to securely archive e-mail. Without ready access to e-mail data, it may be difficult, time-consuming and costly to find e-mail records relating to a potential lawsuit. Further, if an employee leaves the company or loses a laptop, you wouldn’t want their device to hold your only copy of critical e-mails.
AT&T Secure E-mail Gateway helps keep e-mail archives readily accessible and searchable as it:
- Automatically conducts e-mail archiving for inbound, outbound and internal e-mails in a central location
- Stores e-mails for several years, per internal policies and/or external regulations
- Provides self-service search tools
- Frees you from managing storage – AT&T manages cloud storage capacity

If you're considering e-mail security for your business, here are a few things to think about and discuss with your AT&T sales rep:
Does your business have the resources to keep up with the latest e-mail security threats?
Since e-mail is a cybercriminals' favorite way to attack, they constantly come up with new ways to do so. It may be difficult for your internal staff to keep up with the constant barrage of threats. AT&T Secure E-mail Gateway can help protect you against the latest risks while freeing your staff to focus on core initiatives.
Are you protecting sensitive information in outbound e-mails?
You need a way to set and enforce e-mail privacy policies for how sensitive information is handled, and tools to screen e-mails before inappropriate information leaves the company and gets into the wrong hands. AT&T Secure E-mail Gateway is a network e-mail solution that makes it easy to customize and apply your own e-mail polices for outbound e-mails. E-mail encryption helps guard against data leakage, and e-mail filtering may help prevent sensitive or proprietary content from leaving your network.
Is an e-mail archiving solution part of your e-mail policy
Backing up e-mail data on tape isn't enough. To help you comply with data retention regulations and be better prepared to respond to potential legal matters, your e-mail needs to be readily accessible and quickly searchable. Rather than have e-mail records scattered across multiple devices across the company, your e-mail needs to be stored and searchable in a readily available central repository. AT&T Secure E-Mail Gateway provides you with easy self-service tools that let you archive e-mail and search data online.
How disruptive is it when your e-mail server goes down?
E-mail communication is the lifeblood of your business. If your mail server is down, AT&T Secure E-mail Gateway lets employees log into their own web-based console to send and receive e-mail until your mail server is back online.
Do you need a more efficient, less costly way to protect your e-mail?
