Comodo has launched new email protection software.
Version 1.1 of SecureEmail allows private internet users to use the same PKI-based technologies to encrypt and digitally sign emails that businesses and the governments use. It installs the program that will encrypt the email, either through their email program or through Comodo's online Web Reader Service.
It is available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions for Windows XP and Windows Vista and automatically imports all relevant mail settings for major email clients to ensure the fastest possible set-up time and supports SSL.
Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and chief information architect of Comodo, said: “Unsecured email messages are like sending a postcard written in pencil - without email protection software, they can be intercepted, read or edited by anyone along the way.
“The information passes through many computers and servers on its way to the intended recipient. Users rightly trust many of these computers, but it only takes one to compromise your critical information. This leads to identity theft and stolen financial information. If you wouldn't write that information on a postcard, you shouldn't put it in an unsecured email.”
