N-able Borrows Features from Instagram, Snap, to Solidify Email Protection


N-able Borrows Features from Instagram, Snap, to Solidify Email Protection

Email is one of the main communication channels – along with face-to-face communication, phone calls and text messages, of course. With around 319 billion emails sent and received daily, according to The Radicati Group, it makes sense that it’s also a top attack vector in cyber attacks.

Knowing that the average cost of a data breach is around $4 million, N-able introduced Private Portal to N-able Mail Assure.

N-able Mail Assure, able to seamlessly integrate with Microsoft 365, safeguards against phishing, spam, viruses, ransomware, social engineering and other email-borne threats. As tested by Virus Bulletin, it blocks 99.99% of malware.

“The best steps to take to reduce this threat is to be proactive and work smarter, not harder, by having the right tools in place,” said Mike Adler, chief technology and product officer, N-able.

With Private Portal added in free of charge, business sensitive emails receive an extra layer of protection. Private Portal sends a notification to recipients when they receive an email with business-critical information based on policies configured by the user or company. Clicking the link provided within the notification allows recipients to view and reply to the sensitive emails within the Private Portal.

End users will then use the closed web-mail system where the emails will be automatically deleted after 30 days — a key protection against attackers searching inbox history for critical information. Think of it as a combination of Insta’s private story and Snap’s self-deleting messages for email.

Messages sent through Private Portal are encrypted with standard transport layer security in transit through every stage and with Advanced Encryption Standard-256 at rest.

Private Portal allows users to customize reporting capabilities and set their own secure email policies. Users also are able to access a log search page for Private Portal emails as well as an audit log where they can see each message’s journey in detail.

No new software is required for partners, senders or recipients to access and use Private Portal. Private Portal email recipients without Mail Assure licenses can use their email client of choice to view and reply to the message within the secure system.

“This free, easy-to-use feature enhancement of our Mail Assure product makes new capabilities available for our partners while extending the bubble of protection to cover mail that is sent beyond protected devices,” said Adler.

Private Portal builds that extra layer of email security to help protect critical business data and avoid a damaging data breach.
