About Lotus Protector for Mail Encryption

Lotus Protector for Mail Encryption provides your enterprise with secure messaging: it transparently protects your messages without user interaction. It automatically creates and maintains a Self-Managing Security Architecture (SMSA) by monitoring authenticated users and their email traffic. You can also send protected messages to addresses that are not part of the SMSA.

The Lotus Protector for Mail Encryption Server encrypts, decrypts, signs, and verifies messages, providing strong security through policies you control. PGP Universal Satellite provides security for email messages all the way to the computer of the email user, it allows external users to become part of the SMSA, and it gives end users the option to create and manage their keys on their own computer.

Lotus Protector for Mail Encryption Client provides IBM Lotus(R) enterprise customers with an automatic, transparent encryption solution for securing internal and external confidential email communications. Lotus Notes(R) offers a native encryption solution for secure messaging within an organization. While Lotus Protector for Mail Encryption Client can be used for internal-to-internal secure messaging, it is intended to secure the internal component of a message which is being delivered to an external recipient. With Lotus Protector for Mail Encryption Client, you can minimize the risk of a data breach and better comply with partner and regulatory mandates for information security and privacy.
