Taipei – February 24, 2009 – Cellopoint today announced the immediate availability of Cellopoint Email Encryption, a modular solution of products for data loss prevention and regulatory compliance that can simply the deployment processes and eliminate the management overhead. For financial institutes, sending and receiving inadequately secured email statement to customers was becoming a potential security risk. So they deployed email encryption products for secure message delivery. But some of them were using identity based encryption which employed social security number and some kind of username as secret keys. The security and strength of the keys were doubtful. Encryption technology can be divided into symmetric and asymmetric key algorithms. Symmetric key is to protect confidentiality while asymmetric key is providing authentication and non-repudiation. Each of them has its own pros and cons, so the better way is combine them into an integrated solution. Public key infrastructure (PKI) is the well-known cryptography system utilizes both symmetric and asymmetric algorithms but it is hard to install, deploy, maintain and is very costly.
