Tuesday 22 June 2004 09:16 CET | News

Entrust, has completed its planned purchase of the intellectual property and certain other assets of AmikaNow! Corporation, a privately-held provider of advanced anti-spam, e-mail content scanning and analysis technology.

The addition of the capabilities of the AmikaNow! assets will further strengthen and expand the portfolio of products within the Entrust Secure Messaging and Secure Data Solutions to provide enterprise and government customers with comprehensive content analysis and risk mitigation tools for improved compliance with corporate e-mail policies and regulatory guidelines such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and the Canadian federal governments Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). Entrust expects the initial integrated and rebranded product offerings resulting from this asset acquisition to be available in Q4, 2004, as key new components within its existing Secure Messaging Solution. One of the first new product offerings is expected to be the Entrust Entelligence Compliance Server. The newly acquired technology will provide a highly sophisticated content analysis tool for the Entrust(R) Secure Messaging Solution that can automatically analyze and categorize e-mail messages and documents based on the context and meaning of their contents, not simply pre-defined word lists. Policies can be customized to suit the corporate environment and can be automatically enforced at the boundary to help customers reduce business risk and comply with privacy regulations and securities laws. For example, in an e-mail environment this technology can be used to intercept and forward sensitive messages to a boundary encryption server, warn employees about their use of inappropriate or offensive language, or filter spam on incoming messages.
