    Set a simple, tight policy, issue comprehensive informational messages when policy is breached, and let users release messages until they become familiar with the new policies and modify their behavior.

    ReleaseIT® can be used to manage:
    Potential release of proprietary information by e-mail.

    Subtleties of appropriate use e.g. an attachment contains certain words or phrases, or is an image or sound file, which may or may not be work related. MIMEsweeper for SMTP blocks it in case it is an inappropriate document. An authorised person can choose to release this e-mail if they believe it does not violate company policy.

    Auditing of policy exceptions.

    Special situations like ensuring control of e-mail correspondence with the media.
    ReleaseIT® allows out of hours and remote access release for time critical or 24 x 7 operations.

    Combine ReleaseIT® with SSS's SecureIT® to provide authenticated release of signed and encrypted e-mail.

  • How ReleaseIT works

    E-mail that violates content security policy is classified and detained using standard MIMEsweeper for SMTP functions.

    E-mail that violates content security policy is classified and detained using standard MIMEsweeper for SMTP functions.

    It is always undesirable to allow the release of some classes of quarantined message (e.g. those containing a virus). But sometimes, it may be desirable to make inbound and/or outbound exceptions for other classes of potential content threat (e.g. those not conforming to policies governing: size, language, image content or attachment type). This is where ReleaseIT® is very useful.

    An inform message is sent to an authorised respondent indicating why the message was detained. If this class of content threat can be released and the respondent is authorised to use ReleaseIT® for this class of content threat, then the inform message also contains information necessary to initiate release of the e-mail.
    Release occurs in real-time with full logging and optional confirmation messages indicating successful release

    Optionally, a password can be required to initiate the release of an e-mail. This protects against unauthorised and accidental releases

    A copy of the released e-mail can be forwarded transparently to an auditor responsible for e-mail content security policy exception audit
    The respondent can be the internal sender or recipient, or another authorised person identified from an LDAP, SQL or table lookup.
