Clearswift upgrades MIMEsweeper for SMTP to boost Data Loss Prevention (DLP) capabilities

Version 5.3 also sees introduction of support for Microsoft Office 2007 & OpenOffice formats

Clearswift has released a new version of its advanced content security tool, MIMEsweeper for SMTP, to strengthen organisations?? Data Loss Prevention capabilities.

Data Loss Prevention

MIMEsweeper solutions have traditionally been used by companies wishing to control the content of outgoing emails. This new version sees the introduction of yet more features designed to help enterprises deal with their ever increasing DLP concerns. MIMEsweeper for SMTP is now able to deconstruct and selectively inspect document properties (metadata), along with their headers, footers and body-text for pre-defined keywords or phrases. For example, companies will now be able to choose to block any document containing the words ??Company Confidential? in the footer, and only allow documents stating ??Approved Template? in the metadata properties, to leave the network. The MIMEsweeper for SMTP content engine now also recognises data such as PCI (credit card) and PII (National Insurance) and hundreds of other forms of protected document tags, including watermarks.

System Management Enhancements

Clearswift has also added several features that will benefit large organisations running complex environments. Customer feedback has led to the introduction of a multi-domain management feature, which will support customers running thousands of users across multiple domains, as well as those organisations undergoing mergers or acquisitions.
