Egress Switch Email Discovery launched to help organisations understand their workflows

Egress Software Technologies, today announces the launch of Egress Switch Email Discovery. Developed to help evaluate the types and quantities of confidential data being shared via email by specific departments and employees. Switch Email Discovery enables organisations to put in place robust information security policies, ensuring compliance with data protection legislation.

Egress-Switch-ED-Image1-300x289Egress Chief Operations Officer Neil Larkins comments: “When implementing email security and data loss prevention measures, many organisations struggle to identify what types and classification of sensitive information are being shared by specific individuals and departments, as well as the quantities and regularity with which this is done. By silently monitoring all inbound and outbound emails, however, Switch Email Discovery provides this comprehensive analysis to ensure the correct remedial action can be taken.”

Switch Email Discovery can scan for relevant and targeted content based on an individual organisation’s requirements. These can include key words or phrases, case reference numbers, document trends or types, and unstructured content. In addition, Switch Email Discovery also scans for a list of default universal policies, such as credit card and financial information, passport and National Insurance / Social Security numbers, child protection and adult social services content, and personally identifiable information.

Egress-Switch-ED-Image2-300x216Once the monitoring process is complete, detailed analysis will be provided detailing key data sharing trends and specific areas of vulnerability, including information on: email message and attachments, senders and recipients, policy triggers, and message trends by volume and time.

Larkins continues: “Switch Email Discovery enables organisations to take a switched-on approach to their data protection policy. By reporting data flows and any areas of concern, we are able to work alongside organisations to implement email security policies to suit their requirements. In particular, when deployed via Egress Switch Gateway, Egress Switch Secure Email can enforce flexible policies at both the desktop and the gateway to help protect all sensitive information shared both internally and externally.”
