Clearswift Secure EMAIL Gateway

Protect against inbound email cyberattacks and prevent outbound data loss

Clearswift’s Secure Email Gateway (SEG) not only protects against spam, viruses, and advanced threats including phishing, ransomware, and spyware, but layers on the next-gen Cloud Sandbox from Sophos. This offers machine learning to provide an additional layer of security for content or communications deemed suspicious.

IT teams need to ensure that information being shared across email both inside and out of the organization is not only secure, but appropriate and compliant. Clearswift’s unparalleled level of inspection and granular policy controls apply the optimal security treatment to your emails in real time reducing the risk of data loss. This keeps your communications safe and flowing, without business disruptions. 

Clearswift Secure Email Gateway Overview

Key Features of Clearswift's Secure Email Gateway

Using multiple Anti-virus Engines, the SEG provides inbound threat protection using traditional signature, heuristic, and cloud assisted lookups to deliver protection against malware, ransomware, and spyware.

Augment the AV engines with Active Code detection and an Active Code removal option or a cloud-based Sandbox to detonate the file to ensure no Zero-day threats get through.

Malicious URLs in messages and attachments can be checked using several threat feeds, which can cause the message to be blocked, the URL to be sanitized, or the URL be rewritten so that if the link is clicked the URL will be processed by a Browser Isolation solution.

Spam and phishing emails are dealt with by a multi-engine, multi-layered spam filtration system, incorporating Signature Engines with machine learning, DMARC, DKIM, SPF, IP Reputation, Greylisting and URL analysis. This provides a highly accurate and flexible approach where messages can be blocked, held, or delivered with warnings — all based on policy.

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is not just an outbound problem. Depending on your business, you might need to control the content of what’s being received by your employees.

It is imperative that a thorough understanding of the message is performed by the deep content inspection capabilities in order to understand the email body, subject lines, and attachments (such as PDFs, Word documents, and images). This way, they can be scanned for critical information like intellectual property, employee’s personal information, or forgotten content like metadata, revision history, or customer data.

Metadata can include document classification tags from Titus and Boldon James solutions which can signify whether the content is unclassified, classified, or even top secret.

The understanding of the content and the context is then applied into configured policies to determine if the message should be rejected, held, delivered, delivered encrypted, or sanitized in some way prior to delivery.

Sanitization can take the form of automatic redaction of text with message bodies and attachments including images (such as screen shots) using OCR technology, or document sanitization which can remove hidden metadata, revision information, and auto-saved data associated with documents and images.

The SEG enables compliance with regulations (GDPR, HIPAA, etc.) – detects, protects, and audits emails, and attachments to validate sensitive data. Then it applies the appropriate security remediation according to the specific regulation standards.

Encryption provides security and regulatory compliance needed to keep data secure. Multiple encryption options provide many ways to secure email content by verifying that messages cannot be read by the wrong recipients, and the message stays intact - not modified by anyone from sender to recipient.

The SEG encryption options allow policies to be based on sender, recipient, subject content, message body, attachment types, attachment content, message header or document metadata. Using encryption guarantees confidentiality, integrity, and availability of organizational data.

Clearswift Secure ICAP Gateway

Protect data flowing through existing web proxy infrastructure or managed file transfers (MFT)

Clearswift’s Secure ICAP Gateway (ICAP) is a fully automated solution that augments the security of critical information flowing through an organization’s existing web proxy infrastructure or managed file transfers (MFT).

With the movement of data both internally and externally via the web or MFT solutions comes risks of accidental exposure of critical information or receiving hidden threats within documents or images. The added security features of ICAP enable organizations to inspect content for sensitive information, malware, or even high-risk executables that pose a threat to your data.

Going beyond traditional stop and block technology, ICAP applies the appropriate measures to questionable content based on your organization’s policies. This allows safe content to flow through and reduce business disruptions.

Going beyond traditional stop and block technology, ICAP applies the appropriate measures to questionable content based on your organization’s policies. This allows safe content to flow through and reduce business disruptions.

Key Features of Clearswift's Secure ICAP Gateway

Automatically apply the optimal security treatment of your data based on content, context and required regulation policy. Ensure the acceptable level of information is shared and received and that critical information remains safe at all times.

Our deep content inspection engine can fully disassemble the communication flow providing a complete understanding of the critical information being shared. This solution is not limited by file size, zip/encryption, or multiple embedded document layers. It provides high detection rates, which keeps data secure and keeps business operating.

If your infrastructure has a proxy gateway that supports ICAP, such as Zscaler, F5, Bluecoat or a managed file transfer solution, the full power of Clearswift’s technology can be integrated very easily to augment the security in their existing infrastructure with no end user changes. There are flexible deployment options, too. You can run the solution in AWS or Azure, virtualized in a VMware Environment, or as a software image loaded on a choice of hardware platforms. This gives you the flexibility to adapt to your organization’s IT strategy.

Clearswift’s unique adaptive redaction technology modifies content in real-time making documents safe from specific content per your organization’s security policies. Forgotten content like meta-data, revision history, properties and other hidden and unchecked information can be blocked or removed to protect your sensitive information from being exposed.

Files received from third parties, like purchase orders, invoices, or legal documents, could include malicious content and pose a threat to your organization’s critical data. With our adaptive technology it can neutralize risks like embedded malware, suspicious scripts and other high-risk content from entering or leaving your organization without disrupting the flow of communication

Clearswift Secure ICAP Gateway integrates seamlessly with Fortra's GoAnywhere MFT  solutions to create a powerful solution for organizations that require augmented security around file transfers.
