Z1 SecureMail Gateway

Z1 SecureMail Gateway is a central, server-based software solution that provides encryption and digital signatures (PGP and S/MIME) for the entire email traffic of an organization. It works with organizational certificates and certificates for individual users, groups, or organizational units. It provides its services transparently to end users. Z1 SecureMail Gateway automatically finds certificates of external users or companies via Internet. Secure email traffic to customers, suppliers, and partners is easily established. Evaluation packages for Debian and Solaris are available for download.

      Release Notes: This release adds Z1 ERP-Connector into the Z1 Admin-Webclient. It will automatically synchronize users and groups, from an Active Directory (AD) or LDAP Server, into Z1 SMGW. According to the connected AD or LDAP Server, users are created, deleted, or moved by Z1 ERP-Connector. Most standard AD and LDAP servers can be synchronized instantly. For advanced scenarios, the Z1 SecureMail SDK can be used to maintain users, groups, and mandators programmatically. Incoming PDF file attachment signature validation has been added to Z1 SMGW; it will verify the signatures and X509 certificates of the PDF file automatically.

        Release Notes: The 64-bit Debian Linux 5.0 platform is supported, improving performance. License management was enhanced by simplifying the assignment of active and passive client licenses to internal email addresses. Email addresses may be imported manually, from a CSV file, or through the Z1 ERP Connector API. A custom info footer layout feature was added to design the layout of the inbound security info footer. The mandator selection list page was revised to enhance the usability when managing plenty mandators. MS sensitivity header configuration was refined, so different policies can be set up for the Personal, Private, and Company-Confidential headers.

          Release Notes: This release adds a new data model for the administration of both internal and external mandators, domains, groups, and users. The majority of the settings, policies, keys, and certificates can be set at each level of the model. It also offers flexible administration of multiple key-certificate pairs and their management policies; e.g these define when and which keys or certificates should be issued or revoked. User certificates are optionally exported into LDAP directories and/or into “Z1 Global TrustPoint”. An option has been added to centrally attach disclaimer to all outgoing email messages.

          •  22 Apr 2008 09:18

            Release Notes: An enhanced new group feature was provided. Groups may contain single members (e-mail) or domains (wildcard), and policies can now be assigned to groups. The usability of the Admin Webclient was improved. A new user confirmation feature was introduced to protect outgoing sensitive operations like signing e-mail. New user commands were added for sending reports. PKCS#7 attachment validation was implmented, which verifies signed attachments and generates validation reports similar to GDPDU. An "e-mail-copy-to" feature that duplicates all incoming e-mails and sends them to a specific SMTP server (e.g. e-mail archive) was added.
