TFS Technology (TFS), a breakthrough provider of Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions, today launched version 5.1 of its award-winning email security software, TFS Secure Messaging Server, and announced its availability as a freeware license for up to 250 users. This includes 28 essential features including server-based email encryption, certificate management, anti-spam filtering, and many more - all for no cost.
TFS Secure Messaging Server is a server-based email security and management solution for Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, and Novell GroupWise, as well as any other SMTP-based email system. Designed as an integral add-on for LAN-based mail systems, TFS Secure Messaging Server is transparent to the end user, policy-based, and provides a comprehensive encryption security, content filtering and gateway connectivity solution for an organisation's email system. The product's central administration of digital certificates makes it possible to protect an organisation's users from spam and viruses by allowing easy implementation of email "white lists."
"The freeware release of TFS SM-S 5.1 will enable smaller organisations to adopt many secure messaging features and capabilities that larger organisations rely upon daily to secure their email systems, all without having to make an additional financial investment in technology," said Krister Fransson, chief executive officer of TFS Technology. "With our industry experience and award-winning technology, we can offer a very comprehensive solution to any organisation with a variety of secure messaging needs."
Unlike other systems which offer only a free trial period, TFS' freeware offer has no limitations on the time it can be used. In addition, users can choose to purchase an annual support subscription to provide access to future product updates and enhancements, as well as a free graphical email traffic analysis tool, TFS MailReport.
"Our proven technology is ideal for any small organisation requiring stronger protection of its electronic communication. Companies that already have the ability to encrypt and sign email now have the opportunity to handle "the other side" by immediately providing external communication partners with a free solution to ensure secure email connection between the parties," continued Krister Fransson.
Future developments of the TFS EmailControl solution will include support for Linux and Unix, using the same proven technology that is included in other TFS solutions.
