Frequently Asked Questions
Secure email is a message, using SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) communication, that is free from unauthorized access, attack, loss, or interception.
Sending email securely covers two levels. First, your personal privacy must be respected by encrypting the email. Second, it’s important that your organization’s policies are respected. For example, policy controls may be used to inspect content being sent to ensure that intellectual property policies are observed.
The most secure email uses a multi-layered approach to protect email in multiple ways. Trustwave MailMarshal is the most comprehensive solution in the industry to do so, in the following layers:

A Secure Email Gateway (SEG) monitors incoming and outgoing email to prevent email threats and deliver authorized email. Email threats include ransomware, spam, phishing attacks, and other malware. Outgoing messages are scanned against policies to prevent sensitive data from leaving the organization or to automatically encrypt emails to protect sensitive information. An SEG can be deployed on-prem, as a hybrid solution or as a cloud service.
Benefits of using secure email include:
• Protecting your email from compromise
• Sending and receiving email with privacy and internal policy controls respected
• Sending and receiving only appropriate email, free from SPAM and threats
• Ensuring that email is not erroneously quarantined or sent to SPAM folders
Firewalls can be set up to block emails in some ways, for example by blocking emails from certain IP addresses. Trustwave MailMarshal provides much more granular and flexible rules-based email filtering.
