Entrust secures e-mail

Entrust Inc. has rolled out a new server that makes it easier to communicate securely within organizations as well as with outside businesses and government agencies.

The Entrust Messaging Server enables users to extend secure messaging beyond their internal environments through functions that collect and centrally store external users' digital identities. For users, the process is automatic and transparent. E-mail users only need to know the e-mail addresses of the intended recipients.

The server uses the Secure Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions e-mail encryption standard to communicate with external users. Pricing for the messaging server starts at $34,000.
