MessageLabs Service Monitors E-Mail

Two services help managers monitor and control what confidential, malicious, or inappropriate information and images go in or out of company e-mail.

MessageLabs launched a version update today for services that help managers control what information flows in and out of company e-mail.

The New York-based messaging security company released V3.0 of its E-mail Content Control and V2.0 of its Email Image Control services.

MessageLabs describes Content Control as a managed e-mail service that allows organizations to identify and control confidential, malicious, or inappropriate content sent or received by employees. Image Control is a service that scans and detects inappropriate images, such as pornography, in inbound and outbound e-mail.

Feature enhancements for both services are aimed at addressing growing regulatory, compliance, and e-mail security issues.

"Businesses are increasingly dependent on e-mail as a primary communication tool," said Michael D. Osterman, president of Osterman Research, in a written statement. "But it presents several risks for controlling confidential and valuable information from leaving the organization. Content filtering -- inspecting the content of messages before they are sent -- will assume a more important role within messaging management as a means of mitigating risks and managing corporate liability, and to make businesses feel more confident about their e-mail systems."

Offered as managed services, MessageLabs Control Services is set up to help enforce acceptable-use e-mail policies, as well as monitoring and controlling image and text-based e-mail content into and out of organizations.

"Every organization has vast amounts of valuable, and often confidential, information moving across their e-mail systems each day," said Jos White, president of MessageLabs, in a written statement. "The clean-up costs and reputation damage from sexual harassment claims, costly litigation, disclosure or loss of confidential information, defamation of character or breach of contract are significant."

Pricing information was not made available.
