Mail Express® V4 Release Includes FIPS 140-2 Security to Support HIPAA Compliance

GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GSB), a leading developer of secure information exchange solutions, announced today that their latest release of Mail Express®, version 4, includes security enhancements to protect sensitive customer and corporate information, such as allowing administrators to limit communication to use only FIPS 140-2 (TLS) protocols.

Numerous data breaches with loss of corporate and personal information made frequent headlines this past year. "Mail Express has always used HTTPS to secure all TCP/IP communication," said Jason Wolford, Globalscape's senior director of product strategy. "The ability of Mail Express version 4 to restrict communication to FIPS protocols adds another level of security, which is important to our customers who must comply with HIPAA regulations and other highly regulated industries."

No matter how strong the physical security of your data, leaks happen. Adding strong encryption helps protect sensitive personal health information no matter where it ends up. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act addresses the privacy and security concerns associated with electronic transmission of health information. The Act requires any federal organization that adheres to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to use FIPS 140-2 encryption to protect data in case of a security breach. The innovative engineers at Globalscape have included several new security features in Mail Express version 4.

Other security enhancements in this version include adding password reset, reuse, and expiration; file-type exclusion; and the ability to manually lockout a user account. Also, the number of licensed connections limit was increased to 100,000 licenses per server instance. "Due to the decreased load on mail servers after installing Mail Express, and positive user experience with the convenience and security of the application, IT administrators want to allow more of their users to access Mail Express," said Wolford. "We have responded to that feedback by providing an increase in the licenses available."

Available both as a secure web portal and a Microsoft Outlook Add-in, Mail Express lets people send large files easily over email. Behind the scenes, it adds audit and reporting capabilities, policy-based file access controls, and efficient storage.
