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.

Informatica offers new software

Informatica Corp. unwrapped new business intelligence software Oct. 15 that it said is easier to use and deploy than existing business intelligence tools.

Business intelligence software enables organizations and agencies to monitor and manage the performance of key business operations, such as customer relationship management and financial and human resources enterprisewide.

With its PowerAnalyzer software, the company provides a business intelligence platform with dashboards, ad hoc query, reporting, analysis and analytic applications that can be rapidly deployed across enterprisewide and beyond.

PowerAnalyzer consists of a unified, single server architecture as opposed to the more complex, distributed approach of existing business intelligence tools, according to company officials. The software also sports an intuitive user interface that is Internet-based and dashboard driven.

Pricing for PowerAnalyzer starts at $50,000.
